Innovation is in our DNA.

It is no coincidence that LNS established itself in the Jura Arc region. To be near its customers and their technical knowhow was vital. In December 1972, three friends, Mr. Léchot (L), Mr. Neukomm (N) and Mr. Scemama (S), came together with the intention of developing, assembling and distributing mechanical bar loaders for precision-machining used by watch-makers in the Jura region. This idea became reality when manufacturing activities were launched in Orvin in January 1973.

The watch-making crisis of 1974 affected the activities of the business and pushed it in a new direction with the help of a young and ingenious precision-machining technician named Mr. Philippe Scheurer. In 1975, following the contractual acquisition of Mr. Scheurer’s patents, LNS invented the first hydraulic bar feeder, better known as the Hydrobar®.

Worldwide
170,000 bar feeders
150,000 chip conveyors
38,000 coolant systems
15,000 air filtration systems

This invention was such a resounding success that not only did LNS’ business increase significantly, but the name Hydrobar® has become a generic term still used throughout the machinetool industry today.

Following this milestone, the company shifted its focus towards product development, despite economic pressures. Hence, increasingly innovative and smarter products followed throughout the years, to the great benefit of LNS’ clients. Through innovation and acquisitions, the path travelled has led LNS, still privately held today, to an enviable market position worldwide.
