National Competence Center for Research and Development in Precision Manufacturing

In precision manufacturing, workpieces with tolerances in the micro or even nanometer range are machined. For example, flatness of surfaces with less than one micrometer per 100 mm edge length or roughness of less than 10 nm can be achieved. To prevent vibrations during machining, a special machine design is used. In addition, environmental conditions, such as room temperature, must be controlled and managed within a narrow range.

Many companies from the MEM sector (mechanical, electrical, metal industry) depend on the production of such precise and high-quality components and assemblies, which are used for example in optics, measurement, medical or drive technology.

We maintain close relationships with research institutions such as ETH Zurich, Empa, inspire AG or OST - Ostschweizer Fachhochschule, which enables interdisciplinary projects with experts from the fields of production engineering, simulation, materials or metrology.
