March 2021: Air disinfection with ClAIR
For cleaning our indoor air respectively for air disinfection, we use CLAIR fans for all our plants.
How does CLAIR work? The room air is sucked in with a fan power of 1000 m3/hour and swirled within a flow channel, inside CLAIR. The following UV-C disinfection (360 watts rated power) ensures a neutralization of viruses (also corona viruses), germs and bacteria in the reaction room. The specially developed turbulence technology in the reaction room ensures a long residence time of the air under intensive UV-C irradiation. CLAIR thus enables an almost optimal disinfection of the ambient air.
Through the use of CLAIR, we give our colleagues, as well as all visitors, greater security not to get sick with the Corona virus.

With a paper cut through the red ribbon, Mr. Tämmerich (Technical Director) officially opened our new training workshop on September 13, 2019.
The relocation of a production machine made it possible for us to completely renovate or build our new, approx. 100 square meter workshop in the former room of the "Bütfering" machine (surface technology area). In future, the training workshop should be a central point for our trainees in the commercial-technical area, as well as enable certain activities and processes apart from day-to-day business, with the support of the trainers.
The workshop includes, among other things, four workbenches, a column drill, a double grinder, as well as a precision, lead and traction spindle lathe, on which our trainees can learn to turn from scratch.
We invested around € 120,000 in this great project.
At the same time, the construction of this workshop enables us to expand our range of training. From 2020, we can now also train machine and system operators (m / f / d), tool mechanics (m / f / d) and process mechanics (m / f / d).
We would like to thank everyone involved who made this great space possible for our trainees.
Our new apprentices were warmly welcomed at the start of the apprenticeship on Monday, September 2nd, 2019. The first day started with a small introductory round, as well as information about the company and the training. After the mandatory safety briefing, the inspection of our productive area started. Finally, all trainees from all years came together in our "Casino" lounge to get to know each other better. The first introductory round took place this year as part of the trainee hut event in July. Our newcomers were already allowed to take part here in order to get a good taste of themselves.
