ultraprecisie delen kun je niet maken in lange supply chains

september 25, 2018


De usp’s van NTS Norma zijn value engineering en ultraprecisie modules en componenten, om het maar even in een goed industrieel jargon uit te drukken.

En zal dat zeker blijven doen, want de vraag naar modules en componenten die én voldoen aan de hoogste nauwkeurigheidseisen én tegen zo laag mogelijke kosten zijn geproduceerd, neemt alleen maar toe. Groei die slechts ten dele is terug te voeren op de huidige economische hausse: de klanten, machine- en apparatenbouwers in markten als de semicon, analytics, aerospace en medical, stellen nu eenmaal steeds hogere eisen aan de nauwkeurigheid.
