Production metrology

The "Production metrology" department of the Fraunhofer IPT deals with all issues of production-related metrology as well as all quality management tasks of manufacturing companies. Such tasks include inspections, measuring and developing solutions for high-tech industries such as automotive manufacturers or engineering companies, the aerospace industry, medical technology and biotechnology.

For these purposes, we employ a wide range of modern equipment for measuring services which, in close cooperation with our partners and technology suppliers, is constantly optimized and adapted.   


Metrology for production

We automate metrology and evaluation processes for your production.


Digitization of industrial processes

With 5G and the Fraunhofer Edge Cloud, we are creating the basis for networked machines and plants.


In-line laser process control

We monitor your laser processes with powerful measuring methods.


Biomedical imaging

OCT can be used to examine transparent and semitransparent materials.


Optical testing

With the right measurement technology, we can measure and test optics and optical systems with high precision.



Lithographic methods are suitable for the assembly and characterization of nanostructures.



Fiber optic sensors

Fiber optic sensors are suitable for monitoring components to predict damage at an early stage.


Measurements and device manufacturing

On behalf of our customers, we take on a wide variety of measurement tasks and develop the appropriate equipment if required.
