|Continuous development of new technologies|
|SCHMIDT policy has always been the development of new heat exchangers in
order to meet with the market requirements. Own product research and applications
experience combined with research programmes at seveal universities and technical
institutes enabled SCHMIDT to develop and launch several generations of plate
|Modern computer-controlled data acquisition systems are used to record the
extensive measurements SCHMIDT make to assess the performance characteristics
of their different heat exchangers.
Fully automated equipment is used for durability tests. The items being tested are placed under stress to find the absolute limits of the equipment and its specific material qualities.
With these facilities SCHMIDT also undertake products trials on material received from customers and provide fully documentated evaluation reports.
|In order to optimixe the technical and econcomic performance of SCHMIDT
heat exchangers we have developed extensive and efficient computer software
programmes that reflect SCHMIDT's extensive practical experience and capability.
Aided by latge data banks, SCHMIDT engineers can provide, quickly and efficiently, economic tailor-made solutions to our customers problems.
|Automated manufacturing programme|
|SCHMIDT have automated almost all production sequences. For example the
manufacturing equipment includes a CNC-controlled oxygen plate cutting machine
for the low cost production of the SIGMA frames assemblies.
High-performance gaskets for SIGMA heat exchanger plates are glued in by a robot-controlled process which has a variable operational programme for different gasket materials.
|Tool and die manufacture|
|SCHMIDT-Bretten has a very large investment in fools and dies used in the
production of SIGMA heat exchanger plates.
The tool and die maker's shop is fistted out with the most modern engineering equipment. This equipment allows great flexibility and speed in the development, desing and supply of new plates.
