Materials Technology

Quality is one of the most important components in the competitiveness of the company.

Materials are the key to attaining particularly high quality. We analyze and optimize materials by means of: heat treatments, material parameter determination in line with standards and light-optical microstructure documentation and interpretation.  In our role as research partners, we support the application-oriented development of modern materials as well as optimized material deployment.  Our work is aided by a proven network of cooperative partnerships.
