When drinking water installations or cooling water systems need to function in a safe, clean and sterile manner, GF JRG has the solution. Founded in 1887 (and part of GF since 2008), the company bundles its expertise in building technology in the Georg Fischer world of fluidics with the Sanipex classic, Sanipex MT, iFIT and INSTAFLEX piping systems, connectors without dead space or flow-optimized fittings, as well as the Hycleen Automation System.
Manufacturer of drinking water installation systems and water pocket free valves
Free of dead space and flow-optimized
The JRG Sanipex fittings achieve optimum flow rates and do not give bacteria or Legionella a chance.
Safe, clean and hygienic
Cooling systems offer optimum conditions for bacteria and germs. GF JRG counters this with its optimized flow design and highly effective disinfection solutions.
Automation for building technology
With Hycleen, GF JRG offers automation solutions optimized for hygienic drinking water installations, from measured value acquisition via sensor to reporting.
Communicating water competence
Ask the experts: GF JRG not only consolidates building technology expertise, but also supports users and operators with services as well as training and further education.
What we do at the site
As a manufacturer of fittings for domestic water installations, we have our own foundry and state-of-the-art CNC-controlled casting and décolletage machines.
Administrative and technical planning operations (AVORs) support our production departments, control the technological and economic processes and ensure proper documentation.
The foundry is where high-grade parts are produced from Cu alloys on a fully automated molding line.
In close cooperation with the Foundry Engineering Center, the components are engineered on the CAD system, and filling and solidification processes are simulated on the computer. The milling program for the pattern equipment is created using CAM.
In close cooperation with the production planning department, entire molding devices and milling programs are created on Catia CAD systems and electronically transferred to the departments concerned for further processing.
- Design of required equipment and programming of machine tools (Catia CAD)
- CNC programming
Décolletage (bar turning)
This part of the production process turns parts on single and multi-spindle automatic lathes for internal and external customers.
We produce the parts from castings and block or slug material for internal and external customers using machining.The high productivity transfer machines are loaded and unloaded by robots.
With cutting-edge machines, some equipped with robots, all water-bearing castings are put through a 100% leak test in the assembly department.
And in the final assembly, the modern plants are equipped with automatic monitoring cameras to guarantee high quality.
The components are packed and transferred to the high-bay warehouse to complete the process.
Toolmaking comprises mechanical engineering, grinding/wire erosion, and pattern-making teams. Within GF JRG AG, this service department makes all manufacturing and production equipment for the foundry, assembly, and machining departments. Including the following facilities and components:
- Pattern plates and core boxes -> Foundry
- Accessories for the fully-automated sawing, fettling, and punching cells -> Fettling shop
- Chucks and machining tools such as jaws, countersinks, and facing slides -> Casting
- Machining tools such as forming and grooving plates, multi-sided cutters -> Décolletage
- Special tools, assembly aids -> Assembly
And all production equipment is maintained, repaired, and serviced in the tool shop.
Maintenance staff maintains and repairs production equipment to guarantee the highest possible plant availability. In addition, they work with plant managers to find solutions to prevent recurring faults and, consequently, continuously improve plant availability.
Maintenance also involves retaining the value of the building infrastructure as a whole, building cleaning, the green spaces, and the building grounds.
