Jenoptik AG has opened a new technology campus for metrology and laser machines.

Jenoptik opens new technology campus in Michigan.The new building covers 100,000 sq ft on a 16-acre campus in Rochester Hills, Mich. Almost twice as large as its current facility, the new facility meets the latest standards in a production environment for both employees and customers. Benefits include modern and flexible application areas, which can be used simultaneously for training and meeting rooms.

“In our expanded laser application center, we will be able to demonstrate and perform feasibility studies, application-specific competencies, as well as cutting and welding services directly on-site,” said Andreas Blind, vice president of sales, services and marketing.

The new facility is equipped with modern systems and material for energy efficiency including the latest in sensor-controlled office and plant LED lighting, as well as special energy saving HVAC systems.

“We will markedly exceed U.S. and local environmental standards,” said David Matynowski, vice president of operations at Jenoptik.

The workplaces will have natural light in both office and production areas, the manufacturing departments will be “modern and flexible,” and the machine facilities will be equipped with the latest technology. Nontechnological capabilities were also implemented, with a special floor thickness and ceiling height of 9 m under the crane, making it possible to flexibly produce customized solutions.

In this first expansion phase, the new facility will devote approximately 50 percent of its total square footage to production. It will also provide areas and flexible expansion options, in the medium term, for other Jenoptik activities and future planned growth in the U.S.

Jenoptik is an integrated photonics group focused on optics, life sciences, mobility, defense and civil systems.
