Forberg International AS is the owner of the original Twin Shaft Paddle Mixer technology. Forberg has internationally been a quality concept since Halvor Forberg developed its patented mixing technology. Forberg mixers make mixing faster, gentler, and more efficient than other mixing methods using a weightless fluidization zone. The technology was developed and patented by Halvor Forberg, in the 70’s.
Forberg Twin Shaft Mixers, Vacuum Coaters, Dryers and other special machines are in use within the processing industries, food, feed, chemical, fine chemical, and building industries worldwide.
Powder-type products with all shapes and densities can be mixed in the Forberg Twin Shaft paddle mixer. The highly effective mixture occurs when the substances are distributed in the fluidized state, which allows for homogeneous mixing in extreme mixing conditions. The mixture itself is very gentle without the particles affecting each other mechanically. This versatility makes the technology suitable for mixing everything from cereals to building materials.
