MAG Industrial Automation Systems will be starting a new renewable energy business unit, which is intended to design and build automated manufacturing systems for solar panels and wind turbine components. The new unit will be based in Schaffhausen, Switzerland, and Hebron, Kentucky, led by Dr. Siegfried Schmalzried and Joe Jones respectively.

“While our business unit is new, MAG itself is already firmly established in the renewable energy sector, having quietly built a worldwide leadership position in automated manufacturing systems for solar panels, not to mention composites processing,” Jones stated. “MAG has supplied more than 30 automated production lines for solar panels in all regions of the world in the last five years, and our systems have reduced manufacturing costs for solar panels to record lows.”

Currently, MAG shares a $7 million grant from Michigan state for the development of a wind hub machining cell for use in high-volume manufacturing and to pursue the development of carbon-fiber turbine blades.
 
MAG’s new renewable energy unit will debut at Solar Power International 2010 in Los Angeles, California, HUSUM WindEnergy 2010 in Husum, Germany, and Windpower 2010 in Dallas, Texas.
