Machinery and Equipment Industry

© Fraunhofer IPA, Rainer Bez

The business unit “Machinery and Equipment Industry” is the first port of call for industrial companies wanting to further develop and optimize their production facilities, technologies, processes and products. The core team consists of around 20 people and is headed by the business unit manager. It bundles expertise, puts together project teams, and provides customer support as projects progress. Typical assignments concern digitization, automation, or the development of manufacturing technologies.

What we do for industrial companies:

  • We develop and improve product, technological and production processes
  • We conduct assessments, tests and certifications
  • We analyze markets and provide neutral advice on innovations

For over 20 years now, we have been working together with machinery and equipment manufacturers. What sets us apart is our multidisciplinary knowledge and experience in applying research results to industry.
