SWITZERLANDS BUMOTEC builds a factory of the future today..
Construction is underway of an ultra-modern and eco-friendly manufacturing plant by Starrag Group company, Bumotec. The new 14,000 m2 factory will enable the Switzerland-based machine tool builder to maintain its world lead in the development and manufacture of machines for the production of highly-accurate ‘micro’ parts for industry sectors including computer, medical and electronics in addition to watchmaking and jewellery.
The roof of the futuristic glass-covered factory will incorporate a large solar-panel, which in turn will operate in conjunction with a climate control system that will maintain temperatures within 1 degC – ideally suited for the manufacture of the company’s turn-mill machines and transfer machining centres.
A participant in the German Engineering Association (VDMA) Blue Competence Initiative, the Starrag Group meets certain sustainability criteria in its production and business activities, and the new factory will be another example of these best practice policies.
