Fraunhofer Groups / Alliances

Fraunhofer High-Performance Ceramics Alliance (AdvanCER)

By applying high-performance ceramics technology in existing and new systems, new combinations of mechanical, electrical, thermal and chemical properties are made possible.

Innovative applications in the areas of energy technology, mechanical and plant engineering and medical technology, for example thrust chamber coatings, antifriction bearing and implants give proof of this. The field of materials and components on the basis of advanced ceramics is one of the core competencies of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft.

Apart from its R&D activities, the alliance will push its consulting and transfer services for producers and operating companies with the help of is demonstration center "AdvanCer".
