Endress+Hauser has invested roughly 46 million euros in the expansion of its Maulburg, Germany location. The project, which took nearly two years to complete, includes a new production and office building with more than 17,000 square feet of space, plus a parking garage. The expansion was in response to strong growth in the area of level and pressure measurement technology.

With roughly 2,000 employees, Maulburg is one of the Endress+Hauser Group’s largest locations. “The new buildings will allow us to cope with the growth stemming from previous years,” said Dr Peter Selders, Managing Director of Endress+Hauser Level+Pressure in Maulburg at the dedication of the new facilities. A generous amount of space and a modern infrastructure will help meet the demand for quality and efficiency.

Sustainable building technology

The new multistory building was completed in 2020 and contains 17,000 square feet of space, 11,000 of which is dedicated to production. The design placed considerable value on energy efficiency and features a photovoltaic system on the roof and a cogeneration unit that supplies electricity and heat. Endress+Hauser measurement technology monitors the flow of energy. The Maulburg campus also boasts a new, nearly 17,000-square-foot parking garage with 700 parking spaces.

Highly precise calibration

Still under construction in the basement of the new building are two measurement sections that will be used for the precise calibration of level measurement instruments with radar technology employed in large tanks and silos. At 55 meters each, these measurement sections are the longest of their kind in the world. Customers have a keen interest in calibration given that the smallest measurement deviations can lead to a high degree of uncertainty when monitoring inventories.

Dedication ceremony

The new buildings were officially dedicated in a small gathering on Friday 8 October 2021 in the presence of guests from government and industry, business partners and employees. Although the spaces were occupied in early 2020 after construction was completed, the dedication ceremony was delayed until now due to the coronavirus pandemic. “Over the past year we shifted a lot of things to the virtual environment, but we wanted to celebrate the opening together with people here in our new building, albeit in a small group due to the Covid restrictions,” emphasized Peter Selders.

As a symbol of sound cooperation, Matthias Altendorf unveiled a mural from German artist Britta Schmidhauser as a gift for the Maulburg location that consists of multicolored rectangles made from fused glass. “If one of the rectangles was missing, the picture would be incomplete,” said the CEO of the Group during the handover of the artwork. “This idea is easily transferred to various Endress+Hauser locations around the world and also applies to all employees.”

Access Management for Your Plant and Machinery

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
