Ad­hesive bon­ding & test engi­neer­ing

As the group name itself implies, the bonding and testing technology working group researches and develops bonding technology and bonding surface pretreatments for customers from all industrial sectors (e.g. medical technology, lightweight construction, automotive suppliers, etc.). In addition, approval-relevant tests such as fatigue tests of coronary and aortic stents as well as electrochemical characterization (accredited test procedure) of implants are carried out for customers from the manufacturing and sales of medical products.
