    Our forming air impact technology provides the means to selectively control the thermoforming process. It can serve to optimize the material thickness distribution to conserve resources. We are also investigating how the interaction between cooling and the air flow affects the forming of the material in an IGF research project called Fit 2.0.

  • Two different powders in front of filled glass flask

    We have developed a biobased hydraulic fluid from renewable raw materials that provides sustainable and eco-friendly corrosion protection without mineral oil. These plant-based corrosion protection additives for technical applications utilize the excellent anti-corrosion properties of secondary plant substances.
