Industries - Technologies - Products

Being successful in the field of production technology requires the ability to overcome one’s limitations and the willingness to react fast and flexibly in the face of sudden changes. In our business units we take a close look on the strategic demands of different industries, being well known for our profound knowledge of their individual needs and scopes and for driving further developments.

In our business units we use the wide expertise of our departments and provide comprehensive solutions to our customers. Depending on the task we employ our enhanced network and involve partners, in particular the Fraunhofer CMI and the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering WZL of the RWTH Aachen University. This enables us to solve interdisciplinary problems.

 

Life sciences engineering

Life sciences engineering" is a business unit covered by the Fraunhofer CMI in Boston and the Fraunhofer IPT in Aachen.

 

Turbomachinery

The demand for more efficient aircraft engines with lower emissions is on the increase. Improved efficiency and reduced emissions in turn are highly dependent on the right choice of material properties and component design. We optimize conventional manufacturing technologies and develop new solutions with which to integrate a variety of turbine and engine building technologies either simultaneously or in series into the production process.

 

Tool and die making

Our business unit "Tool and die making" provides companies, suppliers and customers of the tool and die making industry with comprehensive technological solutions that will help them to successfully master a wide range of challenges.
