Materials Engineering

Materials technology is one of the key technologies. Whether in the automotive sector, in medical technology or in smartphones: around 80 percent of all technical innovations contain materials and manufacturing processes that are less than 10 years old (source: VDI).


The laboratory staff have many years of experience in the preparation of metallic materials and components as well as in the assessment of damage cases.

We support you by advising you on the application-appropriate selection of «old» and new materials and carry out tests and preliminary studies.

Where desired and necessary, we arrange contacts with other service providers (internal and external), with institutes and with manufacturers.
