Cross-business unit manufacturing solutions for individual requirements
Our production concepts are as varied as our customers. Throughout the history of Schaeffler Special Machinery, our global network has already developed and implemented concepts for more than 10,000 different products.
Based on our history, we focused primarily on industrial and automotive applications for many years. In the development and implementation of smart, modular and scalable concepts for production, applications in the medical technology and consumer goods sectors have also been added to our business portfolio. Our manufacturing solutions meet the high demands relating to quality, production costs and sustainability required to impress in these industries as well.
We implement individual production concepts for the following sectors
For our OEM customers or customers from the automotive supply industry, we develop flexible assembly and testing systems for individual components up to and including end products, e.g. for conventional powertrains or safety devices
In order to create sustainable mobility, we implement production concepts for electrified powertrains as well as for alternative drive systems, such as battery systems or fuel cells.
In the design of innovative production and processing systems for industrial applications, potential application scenarios for us include, for example, products relating to agricultural and construction machinery, rolling bearings or industrial tools.
Medical technology products and devices sometimes have special requirements in terms of the assembly and testing technology used. Our systems achieve reliable quality in a strictly regulated environment for medical technology.
High production volumes are often required in the consumer goods section. Our smart concepts provide solutions to the demand for low unit costs with short product life cycles. We can meet these requirements through standardization, lean processes and a high level of flexibility.
