Eriez Europe has opened a new 326 m² manufacturing facility dedicated to rotor manufacturing, light fabrication assembly and additional product line assembly, expanding the existing European manufacturing headquarters in Caerphilly, South Wales.
Complementing Eriez’ Eddy Current Separator (ECS) manufacturing sites in North America and Asia, the expansion of the South Wales facility adds a third rotor manufacturing site to the company’s global network, strengthening Eriez’ ability to provide consistent levels of customer service excellence worldwide, the company said.
Eriez Europe, which has been manufacturing separation technologies for the past 50 years, will manufacture and stock a range of global ECS rotors on-site, enabling customers to have quick access to process-critical spare rotors should they be required.
“The investment at Eriez Europe includes a high-speed balancing machine and a filament winding machine to facilitate the intricate manufacture of Eriez’ advanced range of ECSs, designed to recover non-ferrous metals from a wide variety of waste streams,” the company said.
The new facility will increase annual production capacity of ECS rotors by a third, promoting globalisation of the Eriez brand and ensuring the best possible service is provided for new and existing customers alike, Eriez said.
