As the world’s leading supplier of surface coatings for components and tools, Oerlikon Balzer aims to constantly push the boundaries of what is possible and set new standards. An essential factor in the industry: flawless production conditions. They not only ensure the highest possible product quality, but also form the basis for a healthy working environment. However, due to increased dust formation during the treatment of the components (e.g. during microblasting or sandblasting), these were not a given. A solution to the dust problem was needed. This is where Zehnder Clean Air Solutions came into play.
Based on previous particle measurements, the Zehnder team put together a customised solution concept for all areas, from incoming goods to production and outgoing goods. The results quickly became apparent: measurements showed an average of 78% less dust.
The significant reduction of the particle concentration has several advantages from a process perspective: On the one hand, it is accompanied by lower costs for quality assurance. Secondly, the machines involved are now exposed to far less particle-related wear, which results in lower maintenance requirements and investment costs.
Another winner: the employees at Oerlikon Balzers. Because they benefit from healthier breathing air which results in higher productivity. And the icing on the cake: Customers are also amazed at the cleanliness of the Oerlikon Balzers production area when they visit.
Industrial air cleaners from Zehnder Clean Air Solutions filter particles of all forms from the air. We offer everything from individual devices to complete solutions and intelligent air purification systems.
