Key Technology opened its customer “Innovation and Solutions Center” in Walla Walla, Wash. The new 31,500-sq.-ft. facility showcases several Key sorters including Optyx®, Manta®, Tegra®, and Veo(TM), as well as a variety of Key conveyors such as Horizon(TM), Iso-Flo®, and Impulse(TM), in addition to non-Key equipment that helps simulate working production lines.

The equipment is configured to create continuous processes that imitate the customer’s production environment more effectively than performing tests in batch mode, giving the customer a more accurate assessment of how the equipment will perform with his product in his plant.
