Small pilot-plant unit for applying coatings and adhesives to surfaces.

Adhesives need to be mixed and applied in different ways depending on a customer's specific task. The R&D activities at Fraunhofer IFAM range from computer-aided simulation to nozzle development, and verification of adhesive suitability. Special application techniques are employed in the area of micro-production. In addition, flow processes relating to adhesive application are studied in detail and optimized using the methods of computational fluid dynamics (CFD).
