Daniel Zontar M.Sc.

Daniel Zontar studied mechanical engineering at RWTH Aachen University. In his master's degree program, he chose automation technology as his specialization and completed his studies in 2014 with a master's thesis on the topic of "Automated assembly of optical components of diode lasers". Between 2009 and the completion of his master's thesis, Daniel Zontar worked as a student assistant at the Fraunhofer IPT. In 2014, he started working as a research assistant at Fraunhofer IPT, focusing on active alignment strategies for optical systems. At the beginning of 2018, he took over as head of the "Machine Development and Machine Networking" group. As coordinator of international research and industry projects, he developed various technologies for the control of assembly cells as well as solutions for special purpose and classic processing machines. Since June 2018, Daniel Zontar has headed the "Precision Technology and Automation" department at the Fraunhofer IPT. In addition, he has served as Vice Director for the Fraunhofer Project Center for Embedded Bioanalytical Systems at Dublin City University since 2020.
