Retsch Technology, Microtrac Europe and Bel Europe merge to become Microtrac MRB

January 14, 2020

Retsch Technology GmbH, Haan, Germany, Microtrac Europe GmbH, Krefeld, Germany, and Bel Europe GmbH, Krefeld, Germany, have reported that they have merged to become the new Microtrac Retsch GmbH, under the brand Microtrac MRB. This move is expected to allow users of particle characterisation in the EMEA region to access the broadest product portfolio globally from one single source. 

The companies explain that under the brand name Microtrac MRB, they will provide systems for particle characterisation by laser diffraction, dynamic light scattering, dynamic & static image analysis, as well as gas adsorption measurement to determine the specific surface and pore size distributions.

Retsch Technology has been part of the Verder Group since its foundation in 1998, providing solutions for particle characterisation with dynamic image analysis by developing the dual camera technology implemented in the CAMSIZER series. 

Microtrac MRB is now marketing itself as a leading manufacturer of instruments used for particle characterisation in a size range from 0.8 mm to 135 mm. Based on a variety of measurement techniques, a wide range of particle properties of dry powders and granulates, as well as suspensions and emulsions, can reportedly be analysed using the equipment provided by the company. Its product portfolio also includes gas adsorption analysers.

Gerhard Raatz, Sales Director of Microtrac Retsch, stated, “By merging our companies we can now leverage our combined capabilities, along with our business and customer relationships and profit from synergetic effects. With our comprehensive product range, we strengthen our global position as an innovative and trustworthy partner for our customers.”

Powder Metallurgy:The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
