Powdery chemical, pharmaceutical, mineral and metal products can be given a compact shape by processes as compaction, dry granulation, high-pressure roller grinding, briquetting or pelletising. The final product has a higher bulk weight, is dust-free and possesses good flowing and dosing properties. This will reduce a large number of problems with further processing.

Hosokawa Alpine has a subsidiary that is specialized in compaction solutions. Located in Leingarten, Germany, this business division is expert in planning and manufacturing machines for particle size enlargement by press agglomeration.
