Our products

Product category: Consulting, design, service and engineering

Powder Metallurgy

Powdermetallurgical technologies offer unique opportunities for the development of sinter and composite materials with tailored properties and property combinations. The starting point for powder technological solutions is always the material. Through the mixing of powders, materials with the required property profiles can be created. In this way, properties such as hardness, toughness, e-modulus, wear, and thermal expansion can be adapted to the requirements.

About us

Company portrait

Founded in 1968 and integrated into the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft in 1974, the Fraunhofer IFAM is one of the most important research institutions in Europe for adhesive bonding technology, surfaces, shaping and functional materials. At our institute’s six locations – Bremen, Dresden, Oldenburg, Stade, Wolfsburg and Braunschweig as well as at the Test Center for Martime Technologies on Hlegoland – we put our central principles into practice: scientific excellence, a focus on the application of technology, measurable utility for customers and ensuring the highest quality.

Our more than 680 employees, working in over 20 departments and working groups, combine their broad technological and scientific knowledge and expertise into  core competencies: Metallic Materials; Polymeric Materials; Surface Technology; Adhesive Bonding; Shaping and Functionalization; Electromobility; and Automation and Digitalization. These core competencies - both individually and in combination with each other – are not only the basis of our strong position in the research market but also of future-forward developments that will be useful for society.

Most of the products, processes, and technologies we develop are for sectors where sustainability is particularly important, namely for the aviation industry, automotive sector, energy technologies, medical technology and life sciences and maritime technologies . The solutions developed at Fraunhofer IFAM are, however, also used in various other branches of industry including machinery and plant construction, electronics and electrical engineering, shipbuilding, rail vehicle manufacture, the packaging industry, and the construction sector.
