3M recently announced that its Industrial Adhesives and Tapes Division is evolving its Bonding Process Centers in St. Paul, Minn.; Neuss, Germany; and Shanghai, China. Against the backdrop of a growing trend toward automation in manufacturing, 3M Bonding Process Centers reportedly provide a starting point for designing and planning automated bonding solutions.

Formerly known as Global Adhesives Solutions Labs, 3M Bonding Process Centers connect customers with local 3M experts, facilitating a partnership to solve problems and optimize processes. Designed to help identify customized process solutions to complex bonding challenges, these centers now enable virtual access for customer consultations and live demos.

“Whether customers are interested in testing the latest innovations in dispensing and automation or are simply looking for a better tape or adhesive to bond their parts together, our scientists and engineers will work with them to identify, tailor and design custom solutions to their production challenges,” said Taylor Harper, 3M’s global Business Development director.
