Kalamazoo, Michigan — Hapman has introduced Hapman Live™, an innovative way to help customers save time and money.

“We are the only manufacturer in the industry to offer online material testing,” said Greg Patterson, Hapman vice president. “With Hapman Live™, our customers can ‘virtually’ attend material tests without incurring travel time and expenses.”

Hapman Live™ allows customers to view real-time material testing online, via interactive video on a password-protected website. Multiple viewers can watch from different locations, allowing customers, their engineering consultants, and anyone else they choose to simultaneously view the testing.

The system utilizes Linksys® by Cisco technology to create a fully interactive experience: viewers can pan, tilt, and zoom the camera in order to enjoy multiple views of the testing and speak with Hapman test engineers in real-time.

“Almost every powder and bulk handling application we see is unique,” said Patterson. “We run material tests to determine what equipment, and what customization, will result in the highest efficiencies for the customer. Our tailored systems carry the Hapman Performantee™, the industry’s only true performance guarantee.”

Hapman’s product line is used extensively by the world’s leading corporations in the handling of powders and bulk solids for food, chemical, pharmaceutical, plastics and other industrial processors.

Hapman's Ideas that move™ combine over 60 years of experience with the most technologically advanced equipment available.
