Automatic production for switches reduces material usage and reject rate

By introducing a modern assembly line for electrical switches, new quality and safety standards could be set with low energy and material consumption. In the new manufacturing process, a lubricant is used to improve the sliding properties of the switch, which increases the lifespan of the switches to 1,500,000 hours.
