Company profile

As a research and technology service provider, the Fraunhofer IKTS develops modern ceramic high-performance materials, customized industrial manufacturing processes and creates prototype components and systems in complete production lines from laboratory scale to pilot plant scale. Furthermore, the institute has expertise in diagnostics and testing of materials and processes. Test procedures in the fields of acoustics, electromagnetics, optics, microscopy and laser technology contribute substantially to the quality assurance of products and plants.

The three sites in Dresden and Hermsdorf (Thuringia), Germany, collectively represent the largest R&D institute dedicated to the study of ceramics in Europe.

3D printing of complex ceramic parts

Complex ceramic components have been costly injection-molded or manufactured by isostatic pressing with high material losses so far. New additive manufacturing technologies are now opening up a completely new path for ceramics. Thus, these components can be produced without additional tools and with more

Ceramic phosphors for more light

Phosphors are versatile due to their extraordinary properties. At Fraunhofer IKTS, ceramic phosphors are chemically optimized for LEDs, for example. Conventional LEDs have the disadvantage that the polymers yellow and as a result the luminous intensity decreases. With the IKTS phosphors, the light output more

Plasma-sprayed ceramic hard coatings

Hard coatings are of great importance for demanding industrial applications. Modern ceramic plasma-sprayed coating technologies will be shown on the booth. We consult and develop customized coatings with enhanced wear resistance, conductivity or electrical insulation and anti-adhesive properties for more

Ceramic membranes and combs

Ceramic membranes are considerably more stable and durable than polymer membranes and allow due to their excellent materials properties the use of high temperature and pressure. This enables an efficient operation and effective use of waste heat. Perowskite membranes are high-temperature membranes for more

Porous ceramics

Besides the classical foam advantages like a large surface area with good storage efficiency and sound-absorbing properties, ceramic structures have a high-temperature resistance above 1000 °C, corrosion resistance and chemical inertness. Research focus is on the material-scientific further development more
