Smart Materials Information

... and sensor systems along the product life cycle – quality assurance for industry 4.0

Product Life Cycle

Customized Competences

Fraunhofer IZFP uses its competencies in

  • intelligent data acquisition basing on complex, nondestructive sensor systems,
  • generation of information (Smart Materials Information) by means of intelligent data analytics,
  • and optimization of process models over the entire product life cycle (PLC)

to strive for optimized safety, efficiency and quality of industrial products.

To this, the institute is engaged in the paradigm shift from conventional nondestructive inspection towards the comprehensive digitization, monitoring and control of processes. To determine and to affect property and condition variables in all segments of the PLC scientists and engineers of Fraunhofer IZFP developed cognitive, autoadaptive sensor technologies, predictive system solutions, hybride sensors and actuator systems.
