Plansee returns to work at Chinese plant following shutdown

May 19, 2020

Plansee Group, headquartered in Reutte, Austria, reports its Plansee Shanghai facility has restarted and maintained production during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic.

Richard Cheung, Managing Director of Plansee Shanghai, explained that well-planned risk management and efficient measures had enabled the company to open its doors again on February 10, initially welcoming back 50% of its employees, which increased to 75% in the following two weeks. 

While some projects may be delayed, production is now running. New daily routines, such as measuring the employees’ body temperature, regular hand washing and boxed lunches are said to be in place to ensure the health of workers and safe production. Cheung believes that business will be back to normal in a couple of months. 

A video on the plant’s reopening, produced by Plansee Group, is available to view via the company’s LinkedIn here.

Powder Metallurgy: The original net-shape production process

Powder Metallurgy components are relied upon by a wide variety of manufacturing industries, from automotive to power tools, household appliances, chemical engineering, filtration and more.

The main reason for the technology’s success is its cost-effectiveness at producing high volumes of net-shape components, combined with its ability to allow the manufacture of products that, because of the production processes, simply cannot be manufactured by other methods.

To discover more about how the technology has revolutionised component production, browse our Introduction to Powder Metallurgy.
