Trends in the automotive industry call for interdisciplinary expertise. If a company wants to concern itself with electromobility, it also has to know a great deal about other aspects, such as quality, technical cleanliness and lightweight engineering, as well as coating and joining technologies.

Right from the start, risks need to be methodically assessed with the aid of failure mode and effect analyses (FMEA) and appropriate safety concepts elaborated. Since the tiniest quantities of contamination can cause vehicle damage, clearly defined testing methods are required to assure the cleanliness of every component. As well as reducing weight, lightweight building materials also offer maximum stability. To design appealing and functional products, manufacturers need to implement innovative coating and joining techniques.

Our business unit “Automotive” covers the entire automotive value chain and helps companies to develop and implement comprehensive solutions.

Electronics and Microsystems

When it comes to electronics and microsystems, the trend towards miniaturization calls for adapted manufacturing and automation solutions. Today, scales have a reached a level no-one would have believed possible a decade ago. A transistor on an integrated circuit is smaller than any battery, sensors are just a few millimeters in size and some screws are so small you need a magnifying glass to see them.

This trend involves major challenges both for humans and machines in the manufacturing industry. For example, accuracy in the micrometer range has become a must in production and assembly processes, and optics and mechanics demand specific surface characteristics. Besides the challenge simply to achieve this degree of precision, it is essential that components, equipment and the surroundings are sufficiently clean to guarantee the necessary quality when a product is manufactured.

Manufacturers of electronic products, microsystems and industrial equipment are increasingly being faced with complex issues that demand an interdisciplinary approach. With its expertise in materials, surface engineering, microassembly, testing technology, automation, production control and logistics, as well as cleanroom and cleaning technology, Fraunhofer IPA provides manufacturers with the solutions they need.

We have only just started implementing the new energy policy. Energy-related topics will continue to affect manufacturing for a long time to come. To keep ahead of the fierce competition from the Far East in all areas of manufacturing, Germany must extend its technological lead. With its ideal combination of experience, manufacturing expertise and methodological skills, Fraunhofer IPA is helping to shape the future of industry in Europe by making it more energy-efficient and attractive.

In the future, sustainable production methods gentle on resources will dictate industrial processes in Europe. This also includes responsible energy management as far as energy provision and energy consumption are concerned. Fraunhofer IPA develops manufacturing and automation solutions for energy storage systems, as well as concepts using energy efficiently and flexibly in factories. It also offers engineering services related to wind energy.
