Perfection matters

Kraus Hardware's customers include large corporations in the automotive, aircraft construction and medical technology sectors, as well as smaller companies, from engineering firms to research institutes.

Exacting requirements are the norm, as sophisticated electronic assemblies and systems often are ultimately responsible for important functions in customers’ products. During development, production and final functional testing, perfection therefore matters.

Proactive investment in the future

Kraus Hardware is now growing within its own company building. Production is no longer confined to the ground floor. It has been expanded to include an area of 1615 sq ft on the first floor.

“We were quite literally bursting at the seams,” says managing partner Andreas Kraus, describing the situation in his company’s production department.

So last year, a laboratory was additionally fitted out on the 1st floor of the company building. The existing workstations, which were all located on one level, were to be extended with compact and ergonomic elements and replaced in the medium term.

ESD carts for new laboratory

Various suppliers of ESD laboratory equipment were compared on functionality, possibilities for expansion and value for money.

Treston was a well known supplier and provider of ESD laboratory furniture for Kraus since many years. Kraus Hardware has used Treston carts in the lab area for several years, with positive reviews, and so the decision was made to opt for Treston. In addition to Concept carts and workbenches, new ESD-model Concept carts were also purchased for the laboratory. 

The aim of the evaluation is to equip other areas appropriately over time. In the meantime, Kraus Hardware is using the space for training, cable assembly, cobot applications and manufacturing.
