Whether mechanical prototype designs or production - independent of external design offices and manufacturers, we can design approx. 95 percent of all mechanical components in the Fraunhofer IZFP itself and also produce them in our very well equipped mechanical workshop including immediate tests after finishing. We can produce (almost) everything ourselves, from simple sheet metal cutting to complicated turned and milled parts to complete testing equipment.
Should we nevertheless reach our limits in terms of production technology, we can rely on a large network of external manufacturers who support us in our projects at all times.
As a unit within a group, with industrially experienced designers and manufacturers, we are able to develop, design and test different prototypes quickly and easily. Whether for our own research purposes or according to customer requirements - our strengths base upon fast and reliable implementation.
Our service spectrum is composed as follows:
- Design and concept creation
- Mechanical prototype development
- Mechanical design (CAD – SOLIDWORKS 2017 and 2019)
- Mechanical manufacture (CAM – FeatureCAM 2019)
- Manufacture planning
- Cutting machine operator apprenticeship
