Company profile

Within the Fraunhofer AdvanCer Alliance scientists and engineers from four Fraunhofer institutes (IPK, IWM, HTL and IKTS) have bundled their competence in the field of advanced ceramics. The spectrum of research performed extends along the entire value-added chain, from modeling and simulation through application-oriented development of materials, production processes and machining technologies all the way to component characterization, evaluation and non-destructive testing under application conditions. The AdvanCer activities include the presentation and demonstration of system solutions with high-performance ceramics as well as training, consultancy and transfer services for manufacturers and user companies. The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft is the leading organization for applied research in Europe. It undertakes contract research for industry, the service and public sectors. For industrial clients, ready-to-use solutions to technical and organizational problems are devised quickly and at low cost.
