Process Optimisation

Process Optimisation Consultancy

We don't just work with materials and products at the lab-scale. We always consider processing routes when we're helping you to develop new products or improve existing ones. Process optimisation is an essential step towards continuous improvement of existing products and services, increasing resource efficiencies and inspiring new ideas.

Process Optimisation


Expert guidance at your disposal - our services

At Lucideon, we can help you to optimise your processes to ensure yields are consistent, and that waste and failures are kept to an absolute minimum. Process optimisation services include:

  • Lab-scale testing of materials and products to ensure they are production-ready
  • Development of a new manufacturing / processing line or making changes to an existing one
  • Troubleshooting to determine what is causing issues during processing
  • Raw material / component acceptance testing through spot audits or routine testing
  • Validation of new material supplies and process changes to ensure specifications are met
  • Scale-up of a technology from lab through to pilot and onto manufacturing scale



Example areas of application

We apply our process optimisation expertise in a wide variety of contexts. A few examples are in ceramic manufacturing, pharmaceutical powder processing, and we are also currently working in the area of Additive Manufacturing (AM), helping manufacturers to improve processes, thereby reducing risk and improving process yield. Why not let us see if we can help you?

Why Lucideon?

We have unrivalled experience in understanding the fundamental material science involved in process optimisation and knowing how best to achieve the outcomes you want. We help you realise the success you want.
