Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Technology and Advanced Materials IFAM carries out applied research and development along the entire value chain.
The Functional Printing group has many years of experience in this area, with focus being on nanocomposites, nanostructured functional materials, printed electronics, and sensor systems. In addition, solutions for energy harvesting and 3D-integration are being developed. Regarding functionality integration, our interdisciplinary team works closely with customers to develop concepts, materials, and production processes. For the realization of functionality integration in production, various technologies are available such as 3D-printing, inkjet printing, aerosol printing as well as sputtering, compounding, and extruding techniques.
