By staff writers

May 26, 2023 -- Siemens Healthineers has revealed plans to build an $86 million (80 million euros) factory in Forchheim, Germany, to make crystals for the company's latest generation of CT scanners.

The company's existing production facility in Japan is reaching its capacity limits, officials said. The crystals are used as detector material for the latest CT scanners, such as the Naeotom Alpha.

The 9,000-sq-meter factory is scheduled to go into operation in 2026. This is the second major investment in the Forchheim site within three years, with the company investing a total of $538 million (500 million euros) since 2019, the vendor added.
