On April 25, the students from S5 of the Master in Integrated Facade Design visited the Test & Training Center at Schüco – Bielefeld. They were introduced to the Unitized System “Schüco USC-65” by Mr. Ulrich Artmann, who gave a theoretical overview about the benefits of the system. Then he offered a tour to the training center where the students could see the specialized CNC machines in action, and finally a hands-on fabrication workshop. The students assembled one façade unit and got familiar with all its components and the processes of gluing and crimping profiles, installing gaskets and glass, and concluded mounting the unit.
