    SPICE:
    Space Innovative Catering Equipment

    Since the first generation great passenger ariplanes were introduced in the late 60’s, the galley was constructed around the cateringtrolley. Several airlines asked AIRBUS to take the initiative to develop a new universel system to save space and weight. This research project SPICE (SPace Innovative Catering Equipment) is based on a modulair box system together with FoldingSevice Carts. Promolding developed the modulair box system.

    SOLVAY: Sterilisation tray of PPSU

    The standards and requirements for hygiene in hospitals and certainly for operation rooms need te match to the highest quality standards possible. Before an operation starts, a sterilized tray with surgical instruments is being prepared. Solvay Specialty Polymers. located in the U.S. has asked Promolding to design sterilisation cases and trays using "Radel" polyphenylsulfone (PPSU) instead of stainless steel or aluminium.

  • Incubator

    BABYBLOOM Worlds first child and parent friendly incubator

    For BabyBloom Healthcare Promolding provided the mechanical development of an incubator which reduces light and sound dramatically, which is comfortable to work at and easily fits over the mother’s bed. The demands towards safety, rules and regulations, hygiene and user-friendliness were high. Promolding has industrialized the BabyBloom from rough idea to a working product. Several partners from our common network have been involved with their specific expertise (Climate system, electronics and visual design).
