Kammerer Gewindetechnik GmbH, based in Hornberg, Germany, is expanding its photovoltaic system. With this, the Black Forest-based thread technology manufacturer intends to cover 20 percent of its electricity requirements in the future. A 90 kWp system was previously installed on the roof of plant hall 1, which will now be expanded to 500 kWp. Plant 2 will also be equipped with a PV system on the roof capable of supplying 250 kWp.

"We have already been relying on solar power on the roof of our main building for many years," says Achim Kammerer, who runs the Black Forest family business together with his cousin Peter Kammerer. "With the expanded plant, we will be able to generate one-fifth of the electricity required by our plants ourselves. This is our contribution to the continuous improvement of our environmental performance, to which we have committed ourselves with our environmental management according to EMAS. With the expansion of the plant, we are exceeding the targets we defined in our environmental statement. Our declared goal is to continue to improve the company's environmental performance in the future with the help of appropriate measures."

Kammerer produces in Hornberg-Niederwasser in two plants on 8,500 square meters of production space. The thread technology products are manufactured on state-of-the-art machining centers. From batch size 1 to large series, all quantities can be realized in the manufacturing technologies whirled, ground or rolled, both according to DIN and application-specific. The complete product range includes ball screws, trapezoidal screws, sliding screws, customized assemblies and complete systems. The machine components are manufactured in sizes from 8 mm to 160 mm diameter with different leads and up to 12 m length. Thread technology from Kammerer is used worldwide in machine tool construction, general mechanical engineering, precision mechanics, medical technology, handling automation and robotics, as well as in automotive and aircraft construction.
