According to the environmental protection charter of 26.08.1993 of the Minebea group and our own environmental awareness, myonic has introduced an environment management system according to internationally recognised standard ISO 14001 and continues to uphold it. The environment management system is checked for its effectiveness through internal and external audits at regular intervals.
Myonic develops, produces and distributes high-precision miniature ball bearings, micro-precision systems and rotation systems used in particular in areas of medical technology (dental sector and X-ray tube storage), as well as in numerous aerospace applications.
myonic is a metal-processing company that performs mechanical processing, assembly, hardening, welding, surface degreasing and cleaning. A small percentage of plastic is also processed. Cold cleaners and isopropanol are used for surface cleaning. In addition, oils, cooling lubricants and hazardous material such as technical gases are used.
The focal points of the activities relevant to the environment concentrate on
the lawful handling of these substances,
conservation of resources of the materials and auxiliary substances used.
Our environmental aims give us concrete principles with which we can continuously improve measurable results from activities, products or services that can have an impact on the environment
Ensuring legal compliance to protect the environment (water protection, fire and explosion protection)
Waste separation and specialist waste disposal or return of recyclable material into the economic cycle, myonic products are returned into the economic cycle as scrap steel
Conservation of resources / reduction of consumption of processing / hydraulic oils and solvents
We obligate ourselves to adhere to official regulations as well as applicable laws, regulations and other requirements and to arrange our processes according to technical standards.
We set ourselves a goal to continuously improve environmental protection and the avoidance of environmental impacts and ensure this through the introduction, implementation and maintenance of the environment management system. The recording and evaluation of environmental data in coordination with the activities, products or services that are most important for myonic and that can have the most impact on the environment are the foundation for continuous improvement.
We promote the environmental awareness of our employees and external companies that work on myonic's behalf and ensure that relevant training and continuing education are offered and used. The entire documentation of the environmental management is available in-house for all employees in the myonic Intranet. For the public, the environmental policy is published on the myonic homepage www.myonic.com.
Our actions are intended to focus on the principle of prevention. Where prevention is not possible, the resources used are to be reduced to a minimum.
Aspects relevant to the environment are already taken into account during product development. We develop products for our customers that are largely manufactured out of materials that conserve resources or can be re-used or recycled.
We want to select our suppliers to that effect and influence existing suppliers so that the quality of their products has a neutral or positive effect on our environmental objectives and programs.
