Intelligent motion control experts Kinematics has unveiled a new 270,000-sq-ft manufacturing facility in Jiangyin, Jiangsu, China. The state-of-the-art facility was brought online in only five months, from start to 100% production capacity. The manufacturing facility doubles the company’s capacity and ensures its ability to annually support up to 33 GW of new solar tracking capacity.

“This strategic move marks an important milestone in our commitment to anticipating and meeting the growing demand for our high-quality products,” said Kyle Zech, senior VP of advanced manufacturing technology, Kinematics. “In addition to the expanded capacity for our existing customers, this new facility strengthens our global presence.”

Kinematics’ significant investment in the latest generation of machining and robotics technology in the facility will reduce its dependence on outside suppliers and increase the energy efficiency of the manufacturing process. The facility includes capabilities for validating and testing products and an advanced filtering and treatment system for paint, oil and water that will reduce emissions and ensure worker safety.
