Our Business Units

 

Business Unit

Production Control

We analyze surfaces and 3D structures of components quickly and with micrometer precision. This means that 100 percent production control in real-time is possible.

 

Business Unit

Object and
Shape Detection

We detect the three-dimensional shape and position of objects and large structures at high speed and with high precision. Measurements are taken predominantly from moving platforms.

 

Business Unit

Gas and Process
Technology

We develop and manufacture measurement systems for gas and liquid analysis which feature high precision and reliability even under extreme conditions. The scope ranges from laser spectrometers for exhaust gas analysis to energy-efficient gas sensor for  food quality monitoring.

 

Business Unit

Thermal Energy
Converters

We manufacture and optimize materials with special physical properties. These materials form the basis for systems for magnetic cooling or thermoelectric energy harvesting.

Software from Fraunhofer IPM supports optimized route planning for fiber-optic networks

Deutsche Telekom AG will optimize the planning for new fiber-optic cables in the future using infrastructure data it collects itself. To achieve this, the company is investing in optical measurement technology with automated data analysis. Fraunhofer IPM has developed software for the telecommunications group that automatically recognizes physical objects in measurement data and uses these results to relay reliable planning data for civil engineering works, one of the major risks implicit in the expansion of fiber-optic networks.
