For more than 70 years Bielomatik leuze has been developing and implementing plastic welding processes for a wide range of applications with a high degree of individualization. Holistic means: Support and guidance from material selection through component design, to prototype and pre-series welding, during product development followed by formulation of an optimal production configuration, the qualification build and installation of the production equipment as well as  a sustainable relationship during production life time by means of the comprehensive "Connected Service". In a nutshell: high-tech with a human touch.

With more than 2,500 employees at eight locations in Europe, America and Asia the companies of the ETO GRUPPE research, develop and produce customer specific innovative valves, actuators, sensors and modules. They are the impulse generators in the customer system - the heart of the machine, so to speak - and are found wherever highly dynamic processes take place and improve safety or efficiency and environmental sustainability. For more than 25 years ETO solenoid valves have ensured precise dispensing of fluids in medical technology. In the future energy efficient actuators and reliable sensors will complete the existing portfolio under the brand name ETO HUMEDIC.   

Mikron Tool develops and manufactures tools for stress-free machining of rust- and acid-resistant as well as biocompatible materials. When metals come in contact with the human body, there are no compromises: absolute compatibility is required, even in the long term. And with implants, the material should also be as light as possible. Only high-quality metals can be used, which are extremly demanding in processing. Mikron Tool has focused in recent years on the production of small diameter cutting tools and materials, which are mainly used in medical and dental technology: stainless steels, titanium and chromium-cobalt alloys.
