At two locations in the metropolitan area of Aachen active research and development work is conducted in the areas of thermal coating technology (PVD/CVD technology and thermal spraying) hard and high-temperature brazing as well as modeling and simulation of these processes. 

For each of these individual technologies fundamental knowledge is acquired in the field of materials science and applied in the area of materials engineering from the project idea to complete system solutions to pilot production. This work is always conducted in close cooperation with industrial corporations. In addition to materials development, process optimization, procedural and quality assurance, our services include, above all, the development and application of coating and brazing systems. The spectrum of materials processed includes everything from pure metals, metal alloys, intermetallic materials and hard metals to oxide and special ceramics, cermets, hard materials, hard alloys, fibre-reinforced materials and even polymers.
