New solutions for unsolved problems
Radiation treatment offers many opportunities for solving your problems. As we can influence your material properties on the molecular level as well on the interaction between different materials and their interfaces, there are often found surprising results, which cannot be achieved by conventional processes. Our dedicated specialists have many years of experience in a broad range of applications and materials. Our business is to find together with you the most economical solution for your material challenges.
Process economics and cost savings
BGS is active in the field of radiation treatment of materials since the early 1980’s. Since many years, radiation treatment has evolved into an industrialised, feasible technology to offer unique benefits to our customers. They key factors influencing the cost of radiation treatment behind the choice of materials and radiation dose are logistics and handling cost in our process. These can be optimised by the right choice of packaging and pack schemes in the units to be processed by BGS. Generally, products which allow automated processing are favorable. For BGS, it is one of our key-competencies to define together with you the most efficient process conditions to treat your products.
In many cases, radiation treatment of materials leads to immediate and quick solutions for your material questions. In some industries, high safety demands and complex interactions between different technical components lead to development cycles with numerous iterations. BGS is partnering with you to support you in your development process.
Consideration of Design and Material
Radiation crosslinking has a positive effect on many properties, reaching further than only mechanical parameters. This should be considered from the initial stages of design, either to save materials and avoid an “over-engineering” of parts, or to use cheaper materials, which would be without radiation crosslinking not suitable for certain purposes. Other options are e.g. the integration of metal parts, electrical components and many other considerations. Our specialists can help you with valuable information to fully exploit the benefits of radiation crosslinking, giving you a significant cost saving potential.
Manufacturing and Logistics
Some of the raw materials used for radiation crosslinking require adjusted processing, to achieve the best possible result. Equally important, we can assist you to make your out-sourced step of radiation crosslinking robust and fail proof, taking early consideration of potential risks in your process.
BGS is using a modern ERP software, to ensure smooth and high standards of processing. This requires an element of planning and pre-processing of your information. Your benefit is a quick turn of your goods and different options to ensure fast treatment of sensitive products. Please discuss your needs with our sales specialists, who will advise on the options available and the affiliated cost.
The choice of the right packaging schemes and packaging materials can have a big impact on the efficiency of radiation treatment and material processing in our plants. Considerations are a suitable material density for radiation uniformity as well process efficiency. Equally important is, that even if we strive to provide the greatest flexibility in terms of forms of delivery to our customers, that the most cost-efficient way of processing is through our automated plants, which have certain requirements to the packaging of goods delivered. We are able to process a broad range of product carriers, may it be boxes on pallets, bulk goods in different carriers or special forms linked to oversize products. Please advise with our sales specialists about our possibilities.
