Yacht equipment manufacturer Rutgerson is investing in automation and advanced machining technology.

The Swedish company was founded in Marstrand in 1976 and says the investment is helping it to stay competitive and meet the increasing demand from boat builders.

“We see many advantages of keeping our production here in Sweden”, said production manager Carl-William Rutgerson.

“By keeping all our production in-house, we have full control of the quality throughout the production process. It also saves costs for transport and enables us to keep smaller stock than our competitors. This makes us more flexible and allows us to adapt quickly to customer requirements.”

24/7 production

The latest investment is a five-axis Mazak Integrex e-410 multi-tasking machine tool that will allow production to continue 24/7, during hours when the factory is unmanned.

“The new machine allows us to streamline the production processes and rise the quality even further by reducing the number of machines and setups required to make a component,” added Carl. “It also enables us to produce smaller series and more complex details.”

Other additions to the Rutgerson factory are an advanced cooperative UR-robot and an automatic vacuum forming machine from ILLIG which can transform sheets of 1m by 1.5m thermoplastic into any shape.
