Another record year!
2016 was another record year for SCHNEEBERGER Mineralgusstechnik in succession. Through its existing customers and new projects in the fields of mechanical engineering, electronics and the semiconductor industry, SCHNEEBERGER Mineralgusstechnik continued to consolidate its market position as an established supplier over the past year.

Positive development in both Europe and Asia
With the new facility, the production area in Europe has now increased to 11,000 square meters. This means SCHNEEBERGER Mineralgusstechnik is armed for the future. The positive development in Asia is particularly pleasing. In this area alone, business activity in 2016 was increased by 40 percent. On this basis, SCHNEEBERGER Mineralgusstechnik constantly strives to provide new capacities in order to be able to supply customers in a timely manner.

Ongoing research and development
The most recent achievement by SCHNEEBERGER Mineralgusstechnik, the casting material techcon® - based on ultra high-strength concrete - for prototypes or small batches, has now proven its value and is continuously being further developed. The focus here is on moisture absorption and the shrinkage behavior of the material in order to minimize any undesirable influences in applications for machine tools. In addition, SCHNEEBERGER continues to research and work on improvements with traditional mineral casting.

A permanent challenge
SCHNEEBERGER Mineralgusstechnik will continue to do everything possible to maintain and grow its market position as a leader. Its stated goal is to face up to the permanent challenge of the market and to provide its customers a competitive advantage with its support. SCHNEEBERGER is committed to further development of the technological edge it has achieved, particularly in the interest of its customers.
