Knowledge and expertise in all areas of production

A central task of the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT is to transfer the current research directly into industrial practice. Therefore, we focus not only our research on industrially applicable production technologies but also offer many technological products and services in the areas of process technology, production machines, mechatronics, production quality and metrology, and technology management.

External Partners – Our Network

Our membership in networks and cooperations enables us to solve interdisciplinary tasks beyond the boundaries of our institute. The comprehensive research spectrum of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and the proximity to RWTH Aachen University open up another extensive pool of knowledge from which we can draw.
