INVESTIGATE, RESOLVE AND OPTIMIZE

We investigate and resolve work-in-process problems. We recommend and implement improvements and modifications in the sequence of operations, equipment utilization, and related matters.

Since 2003 we have specialized in developing and producing warp let-off devices and winding units for technical fabrics for the textile industry worldwide. Our products are mainly designed for winding processes with active tension control. For the automotive industry we have engineered over the past years special components for complex casting plants, incl. a precision straightening press for aluminum cylinder blocks.

We develop both simple components and complete assemblies for complex machines and systems. Design documents and drawings are created on the latest 3D CAD software.

 

 


The essence of the creative process is to see the familiar as brand new. As an external partner, your activities are at first unfamiliar and foreign to us, which gives us room for innovation and creativity.Walter Wirz CEO
