Structuring, printing and additive processes

The generative manufacturing of innovative products already plays a major role in research and development on a laboratory scale. For this, Fraunhofer IGB has at its disposal equipment for upscaling and further development in the area of embossing processes as well as additive processes.

At Fraunhofer IGB, embossing processes can be carried out in a batch process using a hot press, or in continuous roll-to-roll processes.

Inkjet printers and dispensers are available for additive processes. The available process technology is used to respond specifically to the latest requirements.
