AŽD Technology Centre for the production of electron microscopes

Our company DCom, spol. s r.o. realized an important contract for the realization of the project of the new technological centre of AŽD Praha in the Brno part of Slatina on the edge of the Černovická terrace. Components for electron microscopes of Thermo Fisher Scientific, the world leader in this field, have already started to be manufactured in the facility. The new technology centre has a total area of 2000 m2. The modern production hall will help increase production and offer new jobs for highly skilled employees.

Cooperation in the production of electron microscopes since 1999

AŽD Praha has been cooperating in the production of electron microscopes since 1999. In 20023, the FEI Company was successful in a tender as a supplier of electron microscope consoles and invested in a cleanroom. In 2011, the cooperation was expanded and AŽD opened new and larger clean production facilities and the cooperation continued after the acquisition of FEI Company by Thermo Fisher Scientific in 2016. Currently, the company produces seven hundred new devices every year

Electron microscopes from Brno occupy a significant share of the world market

The city of Brno is an important place for the world production of electron microscopes. Currently, 30% of the world’s production of these highly sophisticated devices is produced here. The start of production in the new production facility could increase this share even further.
