Solutions and expertise to meet your needs: Bachofen Engineering

As a rule, manufacturers come under a lot of pressure in terms of time, costs and innovations. And on top of that, they are faced with consistently high customer expectations when it comes to quality, precision and the operational safety of machinery. But why tackle all this alone? The Bachofen Engineering team is at your service and willing to take on any challenge.

In mechanical engineering, effectiveness and efficiency are key prerequisites to achieving reasonable returns and remaining competitive. However, there are hurdles that must be overcome in a cost-effective way in order to meet those prerequisites.

For example, the procurement of various different individual components is time-consuming and ties up staff. In some sectors, there are also special requirements that cannot be adequately met (if at all) using standard products. In such situations, customised solutions are required, which may result in capacity being overstretched. There is often simply a requirement for compact, multifunctional, smart and ready-to-install assemblies that include all necessary actuators and sensors.

More than 40 years’ engineering expertise and experience

For these and many other tasks, the Bachofen Engineering team is at your service. The team was established more than 40 years ago and is made up of experienced engineers and manufacturers. They are familiar with the needs of mechanical engineers and they speak your language. Over the course of the last 40 years, the Bachofen Engineering team has developed hundreds of innovative solutions. It provides comprehensive support to customers, from providing fresh impetus during brainstorming sessions to supplying ready-to-install, fully tested solutions in the form of special components and assemblies.
