Business Units

A producing company that can manage without sophisticated measuring technology is rare indeed. Measurements make it possible to monitor and optimize. Our scientists and engineers develop solutions in line with your ideas – from small sensors to complex turnkey systems.

Robust, powerful systems for industrial use from Fraunhofer IPM focus on the interplay of optics, mechanics, electronics and software.

Research at the Institute is organized in three business units with different technological focuses and application areas.
