On July 8th 2013, the members of the Adolphe-Merkle Foundation visited the laboratories of Beat Schwaller, Frank Scheffold, Philipp Aebi, Andreas Kilbinger and Katharina Fromm and obtained detailed information on the machine park co-financed by FriMat. Joseph Deiss, Claude Régamey, Rudolphe Zeller and André Broye were delighted to see that the machines are in good hands, running and useful to many exciting projects.
