Supplier of Cutting Tools Dormer Pramet announces expansion of Czech production unit
Czech Republic — Cutting tool manufacturer Dormer Pramet is expanding its Šumperk, Czech Republic, manufacturing facility with a new 4500 m2 building, scheduled for completion in 2023.
With the expansion of its site in Šumperk, Dormer Pramet adds 4500 m2 to its capacities. The new hall will contain a two-storey space and annexes to greatly increase production of inserts. It will also allow room for upgrading the existing equipment in the current production floors at the site in the Czech Republic.
The announcement coincides with the 70th anniversary of the indexable production unit, which has been manufacturing cutting tools since 1951, leading to the Pramet brand becoming well-known around the world.
Along with developments to the manufacturing facility, the safety of employees is to be improved. The new modern hall will feature additional changing rooms and clean spaces to maintain a safe working environment.
Innovations in automation and robotization are planned within the development to meet future demands. Also, by moving existing production into the new hall, we can update the equipment used across the facility. The use of automation will help streamline the processes involved in indexable manufacturing and increase production throughout the site.
The new hall will utilise photovoltaic panels installed on the roof to provide solar energy and reduce carbon emissions. There are additional plans for upgrading waste management capacity, including improved sorting to increase the reclamation of recyclable material.
