The Saurer Group, a leader in machinery and components for yarn processing, has announced that it is set to invest in a technology centre in Arbon, Switzerland. The research and development centre at Saurer group’s headquarters will combine Saurer’s leading expertise in sensor technology and automation with the latest innovations of Industry 4.0.

Saurer is currently advertising around ten vacancies, and the first candidates have already been found. The company aims to create up to 40 jobs over the next years.

The technology centre in Arbon will work closely with existing research and development departments of the Saurer Group. This joint approach will be guided by Saurer’s central development philosophy that is summarised in the formula “E3+I”, which stands for “Energy, Economics, and Ergonomics plus Intelligence”.

The formula symbolises Saurer’s efforts to manufacture machines with minimum energy consumption, maximum production efficiency and pioneering ergonomics. At the same time, it intelligently integrates all of the data gathered during production with a view to implementing self-optimising systems, preventive maintenance or intelligent quality control, for example.

Anton Kehl, chief technology officer of the Saurer Group said, “New developments in Industry 4.0 offer great opportunities for a group like Saurer. We aim to exploit these new opportunities, and to evaluate how they can be used to the advantage of our customers. Our vision is to become a smart industrial solutions and services provider, and the Saurer technology centre will undoubtedly make a valuable contribution to helping us achieve this.” (GK)
