Additive Manufacturing and Printing

Symbiosis between coating technology and materials know-how


Additive Manufacturing

For the flexible and efficient manufacturing of customized products the IWS offers generative manufacturing procedures with which modern metal and non-metal materials can be processed into functional components and structures. The unique feature of our manufacturing approach is the variety of scales and materials which enables users of the most different sectors to benefit from our tailored solutions.


The main focus of our work is the development of additive manufacturing technologies based on inks and pastes. In addition to aerosol and dispenser based printing we focus our attention on the large-area film deposition at atmospheric pressure.


Image Processing and Data Management

“Big Data” means amounts of data (image or alphanumerical data), which are too huge or complex or which may quickly change, so that they cannot be analyzed with classic data processing methods. Classic visual image processing software, relational databases as well as statistics and visualization software are often incapable to process such large amounts of data.
