- About us
There are altogether 24 academic and industrial facilities across different parts of the Czech Republic participating in the NCC for MATCA that share a common interest in advanced technologies R&D.
The NCK MATCA consortium has grown noticeably over the period of its existence and from the original seven founding members, a total of 20 NCK MATCA institutes from the academic and industrial sphere, which combine research and development of advanced technologies, are currently scattered across the Czech Republic.
We would like to continue our very promising cooperation and applied research, and continue to connect the academic and industrial spheres. Therefore, in April this year, an application was submitted for the second public competition of the Program of the National Centre of Competence, announced by the Technology Agency of the Czech Republic (TAČR). Not only all the current institutes of our consortium, but also four new partners (Institute for Hydrodynamics of the CAS, v. v. i., SHM, s. r. o., ad-tech s.r.o. and Advanced Metal Powders s.r.o.) enter with us into the follow-up NCK MATCA 2.
The results of the competition will be known until 30th November 2022.
SHM, s. r. o. has been operating on the market of industrial preparation of PVD coatings since 1993. In addition to the development of its own PVD technologies, the company has expanded its range of professional and customer services, which significantly increase the technical and economic effect at the end user. SHM offers 4 service areas: PVD Coatings, Surface Treatment, Services and Research.
SHM is based in its own premises in Šumperk, which was expanded in 2017 with a modern multifunctional building and at the same time the entire production space was renovated and adapted to new technologies and an accelerated production process. The company adheres to the principles of responsible business towards employees, customers, suppliers, the region and the sustainable development of the entire company and the country.
