Tuning Material Properties

Tailoring material properties based on powder technology processes

With our international team with an interdisciplinary training background and broad powder material knowledge (ceramics, metals, plastics, composite materials, ...) we offer for your concerns:


  • Many years of know-how in the development and manufacture of customer-specific sputtering targets (material, microstructure, geometries)
  • Current and diverse machinery for material, sputtering and process technology development: hot and cold pressing systems, sintering, annealing and debinding furnaces, machining, wire and spark erosion, powder injection molding (PIM, powder injection molding), spark plasma sintering system (PLC)
  • Glovebox, compounder, and grinding and mixing systems for the production of tailor-made powder formulations
  • Test and inspection equipment for the characterization and quality inspection of initial samples, prototypes, and series components (energy-dispersive X-ray spectroscopy (EDX), scanning electron microscope (REM))
  • Extensive material database for the screening of suitable materials, processes and properties, 3D construction software
  • Quality management system according to ISO 9001: 2015
  • Numerous partnerships and development networks in the field of powder technology


  • Analyzing customer requirements and defining material and process-related parameters as well as business goals for new materials

  • Development of requirement-specific recipes from a wide range of powder materials (metals, ceramic materials, alloys, oxides, nitrides, carbides, borides and sulfides.

  • Performing powder synthesis of compounds not available on the market, testing and characterizing material properties.

  • Executing and documenting customer-specific quality checks

  • Rapid screening of possible solution scenarios based on broad experience and knowledge databases in the field of powder technology

  • Creation of feasibility studies and decision aids based on them for new materials
