The value of clothing sold worldwide in 2017 exceeded 1.4 trillion dollars. Can you imagine the amount of yarn contained in this mountain of clothing? Neither can we – but it must have been millions of miles. All of this yarn was wound and unwound multiple times during processing. This is just one process step in the textile industry in which the compact and long-lasting drives from FAULHABER prove themselves daily.
FAULHABER also proved itself in the "Factory of the Year" competition and claimed the top prize in the "Excellent Small Series Assembly" category. I am tremendously pleased with this honour for our company. Together – and that is very important to me personally – we have succeeded in bringing FAULHABER to the the forefront in terms of production as well. With our constant pursuit to improve processes, our synchronisation across locations and the high level of automation, we were able to convince the jury of the most traditional and most competitive benchmark competition.
Let’s take a look at the stars: what’s happening in the Milky Way? We know surprisingly little about this, because we literally have a hard time seeing the wood for the trees. But the MOONS project initiated by British astronomers aims to change this. Technology from FAULHABER will play an important role.
