GEBR. SCHMID GMBH in Freudenstadt is part of the internationally operating SCHMID Group which cooperates with high-performance suppliers in virtually all countries worldwide. MICHELFELDER has provided valuable design support in various photovoltaic production facilities. The specially developed parts and modules are manufactured by MICHELFELDER Edelstahltechnik GmbH in Fluorn-Winzeln.
Examples of use:
Wafer separation system for the photovoltaics industry
Deployment: as part of a plant, wet, sawn wafer stacks are automatically separated before being collected by the handling system for further processing.
Special features: the enclosure was designed and optimized by MICHELFELDER Design Service; special welded frame structure realized with a square pipe plug-in system devised by MICHELFELDER. It considerably facilitates assembly and ensures a lower heat input during stainless steel welding; extreme requirements placed on dimensional tolerances and surface quality.
Cleaning system for cleaning room technology
Deployment: cleaning silicon plates in wafer production.
Special features: high-grade, partly smoothed surfaces which are additionally electrolytically polished; considerable number of spot welds.
Wafer production facility for the clean room
Material: non-rusting stainless steel, surfaces electrolytically polished.
Optical inspection facility at the wafer production stage
Special features: maximum demands placed on dimensional accuracy and surface condition of the stainless steel modules; consisting of tubular frame and metal paneling.
