Dr.-Ing. Dirk-H. Fricke and Dipl.-Ing. Marcel Mallah studied electrical engineering with a focus on high-frequency technology and subsequently made experiences in scientific and industrial environments.
They used this experience when they decided in 1995 to found Fricke und Mallah Microwave Technology GmbH. Since then, Fricke und Mallah has established itself as a reliable partner for industry and research.
In the field of continuous tunnel systems and chamber ovens we realized projects up to a total microwave power of 800 kW. The used microwave generators and antennas are from own production and designed for microwave powers up to 20 kW each. Further activities include the development of power electronics and microwave-specific measurement technology.
For research and development, a microwave measurement system, an EMC chamber, several microwave ovens and temperature measurement systems are available in the laboratory. There is also close contact with the Institute for Electrothermal Process Engineering at the University of Hanover, which is intensively involved in the simulation of thermal and electromagnetic fields.
In 2016, the production area was increased by 1,250m² as part of a building enlargement; the office complex comprises 1,200m² on 3 floors. The technical extensions include the complete craning of the production hall as well as an electrical supply of up to 1 megawatt. This means that microwave systems with an installed output of up to 600 kW can be tested in continuous operation.
Fricke und Mallah Microwave Technology GmbH is committed to healthy growth and, with a total of 40 employees, is one of the leading German suppliers of microwave ovens for industry and public research.
