Company profile

As an industry oriented R & D service center, the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST is pooling competencies in the areas film deposition, coating application, film characterization, and surface analysis. A large number of scientists, engineers, and technicians are busily working to provide various types of surfaces with new or improved functions and, as a result, help create innovative
marketable products. At present, the institute's business segments are mechanical and automotive engineering; aerospace; tools; energy, glass and facade; optics, information and communications; life science and ecology. In pursuing these business segments the institute utilizes its competencies in the following fields: Low pressure processes; electrical and optical coatings; super-hard coatings; coatings on plastics; atmospheric pressure processes; micro and nano technology; friction reduction and wear protection; corrosion protection; analysis and testing.


Sensors for cutting processes

The cost-efficiency of cutting processes is reduced by the occurrence of poorly punched sheet metal parts or by cutting-tool fractures. There is an ever-greater need for on-line process monitoring systems. The cutting force is directly affected by die-clearance reductions and tool wear. Piezoresistive more

Optimized control of deep-drawing processes

In many industrial forming processes, fluctuation in the process parameters leads to badly formed parts, tears or wrinkles. In order to improve cost-effectiveness in, for example, deep drawing and hydroforming, scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Surface Engineering and Thin Films IST and the more

Spindle drive with thin film sensor system

Wood processing is becoming an ever faster process. Cutting and feeding rates up to 24 thousand revolutions per minute have already been achieved in high-speed machining. With high speed the kinetic energies also increase. They pose a high safety risk for operators and can lead to considerable damage more
