Large investment in a new 3000-tonne forging press
As part of a project called "Power Nexis", we will be investing several million Swiss francs in a new forging press and a new workshop over the next two years. The scope of investment also includes furnaces, a manipulator for large parts as well as the necessary infrastructure for supplying power (electricity and natural gas).
The core component is a 3000-tonne multifunctional forging press from Schuler in Germany. With it we will have the most powerful and capable forging press anywhere in Switzerland. To house this entire system, a new workshop is being built, with the impressive dimensions 40 x 35 x 17.5 m. We will begin construction of the workshop in the second half of 2012. The systems will be installed in the spring of 2013 and put into operation in the autumn of the same year.
