Gebr. Schmid opens new research center (TCS) at headquarters in Freudenstadt

TCS Hall I
(PresseBox) ( Freudenstadt, )
Just how indispensable research and development are when it comes to asserting one's position in the global market, has been clearly demonstrated by Gebr. Schmid for decades in their everyday practise. As a natural consequence of their persistent endeavours, the plant construction company has put their own research centre for the solar cell and PCB fields at their headquarters in Freudenstadt into operation: together with more than 300 customers and cooperation partners, framed by lectures by experts and presentations, the offical inauguration took place on 12th July. A total sum of 15 mio. EUR has been invested in the building and equipment, on a surface of more than 2,000 squaremeters.
For many years Gebr. Schmid has maintained close relations with, among others, the Freiburg ISE (Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems), and this cooperation will be continued in the future.
However, besides the target to provide more research capacities, two special main focuses are set with the new TCS (Technology Center Schmid): on the one hand trials can be carried now out under nearly ideal laboratory conditions (the TCS is equipped among others with a scanning electron microscope). At the same time it is possible to evaluate and optimize the complete process chain of the solar cell and PCB production on close-to-production equipment, and to transfer the obtained results to turnkey and single systems.
These main focuses are ideal preconditions in order that Schmid can continue to expand their technology leadership also in the future.
• Near-application development projects can be conducted without time delays and without administrative hurdles.
• Long-term, trendsetting (basics) research projects can be followed up with great continuity.
• All current problems and demands can be dealt with flexibly and individually.
