In addition to shaping processes, the experts at Fraunhofer IFAM have mastered various technologies for integrating functions into components and their surfaces. On the one hand, there are functional carriers such as conductors, antennas, or sensors which can be integrated directly into the materials. On the other hand, there are surface functionalizations such as corrosion protection, electrical or thermal conductivity, and electrical insulation. Here we present some technologies and possible functionalizations. Please contact us for individual advice on optimizing your product.
