Lm-therm Elektrotechnik AG is a member of Cluster Mechatronik & Automation e.V.
Some of its members have probably known the company as a manufacturer of industrial climatisation devices for many years. The company not only offers a wide range of its own products but is also a flexible, reliable and, most importantly, fast manufacturing service provider in the fields of cable technology and assembly of components.
The Lm-therm heating, cooling, controlling and ventilation devices have been established as the original on the market for more than 50 years. They have been manufactured by Achter Elektronik AG for over 20 years. These two companies merged into Lm-therm Elektrotechnik AG in August 2014. The company’s core competences include cable and stranded wire configuration, development and manufacture of cable harnesses, and installation and testing of electronic and electromechanical components. The owner-operated company is represented in all significant European countries and also in China and Kuwait. Our customers come from all sectors which have to deal with the problem of condensed water, hotspots or heat accumulation in control cabinets, for example wind power, drive engineering, the food industry, railway engineering, ship and yacht building, or the process industry and petrol stations as Ex versions.
“The membership of the cluster is a direct consequence of our participation in a pilot project within the framework of the ProdNET project. In the difficult phase of a merger of two companies, we receive professional support in the optimisation of our processes and the consequent use of synergies,” says chairman Franz Achter. Operations manager Dipl.-Ing. (FH) Manfred Sedlmair agrees: “We are oriented towards short set-up times and flexible production, particularly in cable configuration, because we want our manufacture to be fast and inexpensive, not only in high-volume production but also in the production of individual pieces or small batches.”
Cluster manager Tom Weber is looking forward to the future collaboration: “Lm-therm Elektrotechnik AG is one of the numerous highly specialised medium-sized companies in Lower Bavaria which don’t know a lot about each other – and which hardly anyone who does not belong to special sectors knows. Changing this is one of my core tasks.”
