Sustainability as a guiding principle

We take our responsibility seriously

It is almost a matter of course these days, thankfully, that companies take responsibility for the environment, climate and resource protection. But it is a particular obligation to take this responsibility even more seriously in the energy and resource intensive industries and applications. The electroplating industry has recognized the necessity for ecological handling and has done some significant catching up in this sector over the past few years.

Consistent motivation with concrete results

It is not just a moral and economic requirement for us, but a consistent motivation to search for even more energy efficient and resource conserving methods. The guiding principle underlying sustainability characterises our actions from project and product development right up to production and implementation. This is best seen in the specific figures of previously realized projects: above all, in the lower power consumption and the resulting permanently lowering costs. Even the lower use of materials, i.e. reduced consumption of valuable raw materials, can also be proven.

Ask us about it. We will be happy to explain.

Leipziger Galvanopreis 2010 in der Kategorie Umwelttechnik

Public recognition with the 1st Leipzig Galvanopreis 2010

Our efforts in the sector of energy efficiency have also been publically honoured. We received the 1st Leipzig Galvanopreis in the field of environmental engineering for our electroplating technology power supply concept. This award was issued for the first time in 2010 by the Deutsche Gesellschaft für Galvano- und Oberflächentechnik e.V. (German Society for Electroplating and Surface Technology).

The prize was awarded for our concept of installing our water-cooled POWER STATIONs as close as possible to the plating bath. The resulting shortened line distances, increase system efficiency and thus save energy. This type of power supply was explicitly praised by the expert jury:

"The presented power supply technology represents a real problem solution for an underestimated and relatively ignored topic with the aim of saving energy. The energy balance for the complex coating process is clearly described and comprehensibly demonstrated. The presentation demonstrates exemplary engineering and commercial detailing, and practical groundwork. Retrofitting for existing systems is also practically oriented and advantageous."

We are therefore delighted to be able to provide a recognised contribution in terms of energy efficiency improvement in electroplating technology. Make use of the possibilities of this excellent technology.
