Xplore started in the 90s within DSM Research to develop and build unique processing instruments for internal R&D departments of commodity and engineering plastics. In the last decade our focus successfully broadened to external customers and other markets/ applications. This resulted in many innovative new developments in instrument design and a broad portfolio of screening tools for material formulation development in various application areas and markets.

Core business

Although a successful instrument company, it was not core business of DSM, a global science-based company active in health, nutrition and materials. End of 2013 it was mutually decided that our activities have more potential outside DSM. Since March 2014, Xplore spun out of DSM to become an independent, privately owned company, officially named Xplore Instruments BV. This enables us to be even more dedicated to our core business: developing, (custom) manufacturing and marketing the best micro processing and post die shaping instruments in the world.

Core Competence

Our core competence, designing unique quality instruments, has now an additional dimension, we design together with our customers innovative instruments on demand in a very short period of time. This helps our customers to become even more competitive in the field of material development.

In short, we are available for you with our screening tools to support you in all your formulation development challenges. For your comfort and convenience we are still located at Brightlands Chemelot Campus in Geleen, The Netherlands; right in the middle of this science community!

We are at your service!
