More Info on CSEM

Since its creation, CSEM has been a cornerstone of technology development and transfer for precision microtechnologies (our DNA) and digitalization technologies. These intelligent technologies are the foundations on which smart systems are built, promising all industries new opportunities for economic growth.

CSEM has long been renowned as one of Switzerland’s major research institutes—in the precision manufacturing domain as well as in advanced microelectronics and microtechnology—with our innovations being eagerly adopted by several key partners, including the watchmaking industry.

Pushing ahead into the new digital economy, our expertise has spawned advanced technologies, analytics, and algorithms, enabling industrial IoT (IIoT) and strengthening manufacturing processes. In domains as diverse as health, energy, aeronautics and space, security, agriculture, and consumer electronics, CSEM provides its partners with the personalized tools, hardware, and software they need to bring them forward into the digital age.

From precision manufacturing and renewable energies to digitalization technologies, we provide the expertise, technologies, processes, and services that can add a decisive advantage to all our industrial partners. CSEM is committed to advancing digital technologies in the economy across a competitive and global industrial environment. With 400+ experts, we are passionate about helping our partners achieve success in our rapidly evolving world.

Digital Technologies

Digital technologies are growing at an unprecedented pace, fed by a web of interconnected devices (the Internet of Things) and smart machinery (Industry 4.0). They are rapidly forcing every business sector to reinvent itself—from energy to precision agriculture, to personalized health and manufacturing. This interconnected mesh is creating massive amounts of data, which—when strategically exploited—will significantly affect business dynamics and create tremendous opportunities across the whole economy.

Precision Manufacturing

Precision manufacturing technology has captured the imagination of every industry segment—from aerospace to watchmaking. With precision in our Swiss DNA, CSEM has been developing microtechnologies down to the nano scale for over two decades. Our innovation in manufacturing techniques such as 3D printing, combined with our commitment to industry 4.0, is a step toward maintaining Europe’s flexible and competitive precision manufacturing industry.

Sustainable Energy

As energy evolves to meet the ever-expanding needs of the 21st century, CSEM is at the forefront of technological and digital developments across the fields of renewable energies and energy management services (EMS). We are using advanced technologies to help our customers thrive throughout this smarter landscape, optimizing renewable energies and their integration, storage, monitoring, control, and maintenance.
