Combining skills at one location
Goldkronach, June 2017 – Dürr has moved the production of its recuperative thermal exhaust-air purification system Ecopure® TAR to Goldkronach. The TARCOM gas burners and the gas pressure control systems for Dürr's exhaust-air purification systems are already produced here. Customers benefit from the multi-functional test stand and pre-commissioning, also available at this site. Both of these speed up the commissioning process and minimize the risk of reworking.
Goldkronach is the headquarters of subsidiary LTB (Luft- und Thermotechnik Bayreuth GmbH), whose core business is type RTO regenerative thermal exhaust-air purification systems. LTB has been part of the Dürr Group's Clean Technology Systems division since July 2013. The Dürr Group offers customized, economical exhaust-air purification solutions under the two brands: Dürr and LTB.
The distances from engineering to production are short for the exhaust-air purification experts in Goldkronach. "We can respond quickly and flexibly to customer requirements", says Site Manager Michael Bamberger. "And as part of our optimization program, we are successfully working to reduce lead times, which means customers will receive their systems faster."
Optimizing products on the test stand
Another advantage of this site is the multi-functional test stand. Dürr uses it to develop important product components such as burners and hot gas valves, or to put new valves and software modules to the test. Service staff attend training and further development here. The "hot commissioning" of entire Ecopure® TARs can also be carried out when required by the customer.
One of Dürr's corporate goals is to increase the vertical depth of production in the individual regions so as to respond more quickly to customer needs. That's why the production of all Ecopure® TARs, especially for the European area, is concentrated in Goldkronach. For the Asian market, Dürr produces these exhaust-air purification systems at its Shanghai site according to the Group's uniform quality standards. Being close to the customer shortens delivery routes, and the service team can reach the site faster.
