We also have many years of experience in the area of quality assurance for packagings and sensitive contents. Our Application Centre develops and tests machinery and equipment in the area of packaging and foods.

Our strength is being able to bring together science and industry. We consolidate the innovative work of our customers and so ensure that in addition to short-term commercial success they gain long-term competitive advantages.

Costs, processing and usage aspects, disposal characteristics and environmental protection matters are hence considered by the Fraunhofer IVV as development criteria of equal impor-tance. Our concepts always consider efficient raw material and energy usage and process and product integrated environmental protection.

In our Business Fields, we offer our customers the use of our own patents / protection rights and provide attractive preliminary results for new products, processes and applications. We also offer a high quality range of services based on self-developed internationally recognised methods.
