Press Release | Mikron Automation

FEBRUARY 27, 2019

Biel, Switzerland: – Medical assembly process specialist Mikron Automation’s parent Mikron Group has released preliminary results showing significant increases in orders and sales growth of almost 27% during 2018.

According to provisional closing figures, Mikron Group achieved a significant year-on-year increases in incoming orders and net sales growth of 26.8%, with Mikron Automation orders up almost 60%.

Sales growth was driven by both Mikron business segments, Machining Solutions and Automation, while all Group operations profited a generally stable market environment, with most customers’ production systems running at high capacity utilization levels during 2018, driving increased demand for tools and services.

Record orders

During the 2018 financial year, group orders increased by 29.9% to reach a record level of CHF 362.3 million (USD 365m) by December 31, 2018, compared with CHF 278.9m (USD 281m) at end of 2017. The Group also began 2019 with a record order backlog of CHF 195.7m (USD 197.2m) at year end compared with CHF 157.2 m (USD 158.4m) at the same point in 2018.

Mikron Automation reported incoming orders of CHF 200.9 million (USD 202.2m)in 2018, an increase of 59.4% compared with 2017. Following solid order intake in the first half, the Automation segment won a number of large orders in the second half, some of which will generate sales into 2020. The Mikron Group is not expecting to attract the same volume of new large orders in 2019. The Machining Solutions segment recorded an increase in order intake from CHF 152.9 million (USD 153.9m) in 2017 to CHF 162.2 million (USD 163.3m) in 2018.

Sales and profits

With annual sales of CHF 315.2 million (USD 158.4m), the Mikron Group exceeded the previous year’s result (CHF 248.5 million) by 26.8%. Mikron Machining Solutions lifted sales by 29.6% from CHF 124.1 million in 2017 to CHF 160.8 million (USD 161.9m) in 2018, while the Automation business segment posted 24.5% growth from CHF 124.6 million to 155.2 million (USD 158.4m).

Based on the provisional figures, Mikron is confirming its previous profitability expectations for the 2018 financial year. The Group is anticipating an EBIT margin exceeding 4% (2017: 1.1%). Both business segments contributed to driving the improvement in profitability.

Net results

The Mikron Group board commented: “Given the improved operating results reported by subsidiaries, the Mikron Group expects to utilize and capitalize tax loss carryforwards and so reduce the tax rate in the 2018 financial year. On the basis of the provisional closing figures, the Mikron Group is looking to achieve a net result in the vicinity of CHF 12 million (USD 12.1m) for 2018, compared with CHF 1.2 million for 2017.”

Mikron will announce the Group’s detailed closing figures for 2018 at the Media and Analyst Conference in Zurich on March 20, 2019.

Press Release | Mikron Automation

JULY 23, 2018

Boudry, Switzerland: – Mikron Automation presents its scalable and customized assembly solutions together with its extensive process integration experience at the 2018 Automatica show in Munich. The trade show attracted a record number of visitors and so did the Mikron Automation booth.

Mikron Automation’s spectacular redesigned booth was a surprising eye-catcher at Automatica 2018, which took place in Munich from June 19 to 22, 2018. As the leading partner for scalable and customized assembly solutions, Mikron welcomed a record number of people to its booth.

Process expertise

Shimmering blue LED curtains and four big touch screens with an interactive surface – in the booth’s central area, Mikron presented its vast process know-how based on 40 years of experience and over 350 processes integrated into real production. The high-tech LED curtains turned out to be a real crowd-pleaser.

Flexible and scalable machine platforms

On the latest version of the G05 assembly platform, Mikron demonstrated a combination of different technologies: a high-performance gantry robot plus a servo-driven Pick & Place were integrated with the proven and robust cam-driven Pick & Place. This combination demonstrates the flexibility and scalability of the G05 platform.

Focused on the automotive and electrical industries, Mikron showed a fully electric linear cell, combining servo-driven axes with an electric magnetic conveyor system and a cobot. This cell is especially suitable for products with many variants which can easily be added later. The solution can also assemble and test larger parts.

On display was also a robot-equipped manual workplace, which is particularly suitable as a pilot line for medical customers when validating complex assembly processes in the early stage of a new product launch. These validated processes can later be integrated into more automated solutions without impacting the process parameters.

Industry 4.0

With a digital twin of the G05 presented, Mikron showed new methods of advanced simulation. This technology allows real-time data simulation of a physical G05 together with virtual manual workplaces and additional virtual G05 cells.

Premium Customer Service

Mikron attaches great importance to comprehensive and responsive customer service: once more, the customer service team made this clear to the enthusiastic audience with an interactive presentation.

About Mikron Automation

Mikron Automation is the partner for scalable and customized assembly systems – from the first idea to the highest performance solutions.

Press Release | Mikron Automation

JANUARY 30, 2017

DENVER, USA: – Mikron Automation and Denver-based Confluent Development are pleased to announce the expansion of Mikron Automation’s U.S. headquarters in Arapahoe County’s Dove Valley Business Park. The industrial facility will expand to include 19,000 square feet of needed space to help support the company’s rapid growth, increasing the facility’s total size to 82,000 square feet.

Mikron Automation, a division of the Swiss-based Mikron Group, is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of customized, highly productive automation solutions for assembly and testing of pharma, medical, automotive, consumer, electrical and construction products. Its U.S. headquarters in Dove Valley Business Park, which is home to more than 100 skilled employees, serves as an assembly and testing facility and is one of the two U.S. locations for the Mikron Group.

As the developer on the expansion project, Confluent Development previously delivered Mikron Automation’s new U.S. headquarters in 2015 as the company relocated from its former Aurora facility. The Denver relocation increased Mikron’s production capability by 30 percent with a facility fostering efficient workflow and flexible configurations, contributing to the company’s rapid operational growth. The relocation included plans for this future growth, with Confluent Development initiating the expansion project in September 2016 and a planned completion in April 2017.

“With our relocation in 2015 supporting improved operational processes, we’ve been thrilled to see that our current demand has far exceeded projections, triggering the need for immediate growth,” said Mike Gunner, General Manager for Mikron Corporation Denver. “We’re very pleased to soon have an expanded headquarters, to further enhance our speed-to-market goals and the customer experience.”

In addition to the development project, Mikron’s focus on talent recruitment and retention has also supported its rapid growth, receiving recognition for its success. Last year, the Denver location launched an apprenticeship program in coordination with the governor’s office, Department of Labor, local colleges and school districts. With Mikron Corporation Denver as a corporate leader of Colorado’s Workforce Development efforts, Governor Hickenlooper signed House Bill 16-1288, Industry Infrastructure Grant Program, in the company’s new Denver facility in May 2016.

“Mikron is truly a forward-thinking company with keen insight into how to continue strengthening relationships with current and future customers across North and Central America,” said Celeste Tanner, chief development officer of Confluent Development. “It’s rewarding to see the ways in which the physical facility can contribute to a company’s dramatic success, and we’re honored to help play a role in the growth.”

Dove Valley Business Park Associates helped to complete the original land sale, Open Studio Architecture is serving as the architect and Alcorn Construction is the project’s general contractor. Jim McGrath and Tom Pappas of Newmark Grubb Knight Frank represented Mikron in the transaction.
