Fresenius Medical Care – Assembly optimisation with ECOTECH

Application engineering – ECOTECH

During their partnership, with the ECOTECH service, Böllhoff has already realised several project of application engineering in cooperation with Fresenius. Special tapping screws are for example used in different components of the devices to reduce the number of different parts as well as assembly times and costs at the same time increasing process reliability.
