The demand for Meyer Burger’s MB PERC cell upgrade technology continues with a contract from an existing Asian customer for the delivery, installation and commissioning of the MAiA 2.1 upgrade cell coating platform. The contract volume is around CHF 15 million.
The Austrian company Rosenbauer is the world’s largest manufacturer of fire fighting technology and also has fire trucks in its product range Rosenbauer offers the pressurized foam mixing system DIGIMATIC42 as an equipment option and it is electrically driven with a controller and motor from the Nuremberg-based drive and automatization manufacturer Baumüller.
On the one hand, the chip flute geometry has been optimised. On the other hand, a newly developed coating is used. In combination with the modified cutting edge preparation, this offers a 50 percent longer tool life. Furthermore, the performance of the new drill has been significantly improved. Drilling is possible with a 15 percent higher cutting speed and a 15 percent higher feed rate compared with the predecessor model. That means lower costs per part and hence more cost-effectiveness for the user.
High hygiene standards, difficult ambient conditions or extreme demands on machines and systems: Baumüller offers the right drive and automatization solution for every application.
