ImpulsTec GmbH is the result of many years of research activities performed by Adensis GmbH, an R&D company within a larger group of photovoltaic group. Many fields of application for the developed fragmentation technology arose out of the non-contact and phase-selective fragmentation of various silicon qualities. These no longer remained only in the field of photovoltaics, but spread to a wide range of industries. These include, for example, recycling, mining, metallurgy and materials research. In 2014, these activities were finally consolidated into an independent company exclusively dedicated to industrial application of the developed fragmentation technology: ImpulsTec GmbH.
