Maker 5 - the world's most modern abrasives production plant
Our green plant
The plant was constructed according to strict ecological criteria. Optimised air conduction processes and heat recovery systems reduce heat consumption considerably. All harmful substances are destroyed in an exhaust air treatment plant.
Fit for the future
With Maker 5 we are able to produce 40 million square metres of abrasives a year in addition to our other two production plants in Frauenfeld. With a manufacturing width of one metre, this is the equivalent of once around the globe. It enables us to meet ever increasing demand for our abrasives and provide the basis for continued growth. In Maker 5 we also use new machines capable of producing sanding belt rolls up to two metres in width. These extra-wide sanding belts have opened up new market segments and created additional sales opportunities, for example in the panels industry. Technically, we will continue to improve Maker 5. The system is engineered in such a way that we can convert and extend it at any time to keep pace with the growing requirements of markets and our customers.
The world's most modern factory at a glance
The impressive size and complexity of Maker 5 really becomes apparent when you take a virtual tour through the heart of our abrasives production facility. Numerous finely co-ordinated components make possible a modularised "just in time" manufacturing process, which will make possible the next generation of modern abrasives. Curtain up, roll the film!
