Sensirion opens new plant for CMOS components

Published: 27-Jul-2011

Includes four cleanrooms for the manufacture of sensors

Sensirion, a Swiss manufacturer of CMOS-based sensor components and systems, has opened a new production plant in Stäfa, just a few hundred metres from the main building, to support growth.

The building will shortly house the entire production of the high-tech company, while the development and sales departments will remain in the main building alongside administration.

Highly automated production lines have now been built over 10,000m2 space on three floors.

The core of the production plant consists of four cleanrooms for the manufacture of sensors for measuring moisture, temperature, gas and liquid flows as well as differential pressure. The largest ISO 6-certified cleanroom offers 1,000m2 of space.

The company says the new building will help it avoid capacity bottlenecks and ensure on-time and reliable delivery of millions of high-quality sensors worldwide.

The plant uses the latest building services technology, with air conditioning provided by geothermal probes, heat pumps and an internal cooling system equipped for heat recovery.

Automatic fire suppression systems and smoke extraction units are included and the building is divided into different autonomous fire compartments, which guarantee high operational safety and security.

Sensirion products include humidity and temperature sensors, mass flow meters and controllers, gas and liquid flow sensors, and differential pressure sensors.

The company supports its international OEM customers with tailormade sensor systems for analytical instruments, consumer goods, and applications in the medical technology, automotive and HVAC sectors.
