Three new trainees start their apprenticeships

On September 1, three motivated young people started their training at Frey & Winkler. At the beginning, training supervisor Dieter Pascher welcomed the newcomers and took care of all organizational matters. A company presentation and a product presentation helped the "newcomers" to get a first impression of F&W. Through a small company rally, the trainees got to know the most important stations in the company. After refreshments, the afternoon continued with the safety briefing.

F&W expands cleanroom capacities

Our current project planning activities concerning a new cleanroom will lead to an expansion of the existing cleanroom capacities at our location in Königsbach-Stein. Using state-of-the-art cleanroom technology on an area of approx. 260 m², we will be able to meet also in future sector-specific quality requirements that continue to increase. By directly connecting the machines to or in the cleanroom, Frey & Winkler offers the best conditions for producing precise silicone components under cleanroom conditions, both on vertical and horizontal injection molding machines, and then packaging them directly. If requested by the customer, the completion of individual components into assemblies will also be possible under cleanroom conditions. The launch of operations at the new facilities is scheduled for the third quarter of 2021.


F&W actively contributes to environmental protection

In the context of expanding cleanroom capacities at the Königsbach-Stein site, Frey & Winkler has also been modernising the cooling system technology, which supplies appropriate cooling not only to the cleanrooms, but also to the production facilities on the shopfloor. In future, this state-of-the-art system will adapt to the respective utilization degree of production, guaranteeing a reliable and energy-saving supply at all times. By using a heat recovery system, the energy can additionally be used for heating premises. The modernization will save approx. 330 tons of CO² emissions per year, which means that Frey & Winkler actively contributes to environmental protection.
