Founder, CEO and Chairman of the board
After a degree in microtechnology, he worked as a planning and production manager for a watch company before moving to the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology Lausanne (EPFL) as a researcher. He has more than two decades of solid experience in high-precision systems, flexible structures and EDM processes. In 2000, he founded his own company, now known as Mecartex SA. In parallel, he is a lecturer of the Precision Systems course at the University of Applied Sciences Lugano - SUPSI.
CO-founder and Head of Manufacturing
After completing his studies he began working as an Engineer Surveyor. He has a track record in manufacturing for the tooling industry, and benefits from six years of experiences as Technical Manager of a team of 120 employees in the field of watch manufacturing. He has been Head of Production for Mecartex since its foundation.
Flexures are the best technology to fulfil future requirements of high precision industry and Mecartex’s objective is to maintain a leadership position as the best product and solution provider for high precision measuring and positioning systems.
Specialized Engineering Services
Mecartex provides innovative solutions for high precision applications, offering complete support from development through production while maintaining a short time-to-market.
High precision products
Mecartex develops and manufactures high precision products, combining conventional and the flexures technology, such as the 3D Nanotouch Probe, Micro Positioning stages or very precise aligner and force sensors used in industrial applications like the assembly process of chips or the micro manufacturing in the Automotive industry. Mecartex supplies OEM customized modules for high precision systems.
Mecartex manufactures complex, high precision mechanical parts using the Milling and Electro Discharge Machining (EDM) process. The Mecartex specific technical experience and rare know-how is essential to manufacturing complex mechanical parts. This knowledge is also a fundamental advantage in defining a “design for manufacturing” for complex products, in particular for flexure based products.
