Our UV50 model, the world’s largest air cooled rotary vane vacuum pump, provides a complete statement of leadership in rotary vane technology.
Through continuous evolution and a modern spirit, Pneumofore shows a youthful energy that leaves a number of larger rotary vane companies with decades less experience looking tired and dull. Though research and development cost considerably, we strive in developing new machines for the challenges of tomorrow. And again, all Life Cycle Cost comparisons made during 2006 confirm Pneumofore machines as the most beneficial solution, since it represents the lowest total cost of industrial investment goods in the form of air compressors and vacuum pumps. Customers driven by low purchasing prices, and therefore high costs of maintenance and energy use, remain absent from our growing list of references. Customers who choose Pneumofore solutions rely on facts rather than promises. A family-owned operation with three generations of Swiss engineers producing 55.000 machines is a track record they can trust and appreciate.
Quality pays. The total costs for warranty covered by Pneumofore remain below 0,8% of the turnover, largely below what is expected of ISO9001-2000 and 14001 quality certifications. We consider our quality of production and our quality of service as integral values, and not merely a method or procedure. The export of Pneumofore machines was 36% of the turnover in 2002, while in 2006 it was 58%. In 2006, turnover increased by more than 20% - more facts showing we’re on the right track with our principles.
Higher sensibility towards environmental issues, both on the popular and political level, strongly support Pneumofore’s success. Years ago, we could not count on most of our customers understanding long term environmental impact. Today, the law demands radical improvements in lowering CO2 emissions caused by energy consumption. In this point, Pneumofore empowers its customers with the highest available energy savings. At the core of Pneumofore systems, the constant high efficiency and trouble-free performance of thermo- and fluid-dynamical machines provides extraordinary reliability and durability over hundred thousands of operation hours with very easy maintenance. And a Pneumofore rotary vane air end can be repaired over and over again. This not possible for most other technologies that are more popular due to their lower entry price, but prove to be far more costly in the long-term, both financially and ecologically.
Free global markets set new challenges for the future, such as reducing the planet’s damage caused by industrial air compressors and vacuum pumps. With our determination to win any Life Cycle Cost comparison and to provide the market with higher-evolved technology, Pneumofore is a fierce competitor in this arena.
