Ground-breaking ceremony

New RAFI factory in Bad Waldsee

With a symbolic ground-breaking ceremony on May 2, the start of construction of the new RAFI factory in Bad Waldsee was celebrated. After a welcoming speech by RAFI CFO Lothar Arnold and an address by Andreas Reisch, Managing Director of the construction company, presiding mayor Matthias Henne underlined the importance of the construction project in his speech. He pointed out that the 250 long-term jobs to be created at the new location would make RAFI one of the largest local employers. Lothar Arnold explained: “This increase in our production capacity is the result of RAFI’s successful growth strategy. It also demonstrates our clear commitment to the region as a production location.”


MICON 5 micro-switch series

With the MICON 5 S, MICON 5 SL, and MICON 5 SAFETY series, RAFI has launched a new generation of robust, ultra-small tactile switches. The extremely compact micro-switches measure just 5.1 x 6.4 x 3.85 mm. Thanks to their optimized sealing system, they achieve IP67 degree of protection and can therefore be installed on PCBs protected by casting, painting, or nanocoating. The extreme temperature resistance from -40°C to +125°C meets current automotive industry standards. High-quality gold contacts ensure permanent switching reliability.
