About Fraunhofer ISC

The Fraunhofer ISC focuses on developing materials, coatings and nano particles with new or enhanced properties for customized applications, and on methods of manufacturing and processing such materials. The business success of our customers and partners is our overriding aim. The institute's core competencies are acquired through self-financed fundamental research and elaborated with the market requirements in view.

Core competencies are:
- Synthesis of inorganic and hybrid functional materials, ceramics and glass, preferably using techniques involving chemical nanotechnology
- Material processing techniques for the production of suspensions, powders, fibers, coatings, microstructures and composites, and building functional models
- Material characterization, analysis and optimization, and procedures for monitoring high-temperature processes

3D printed electronics on large structural components


Researchers of Fraunhofer IKTS have successfully combined ceramic thick-film and direct writing technologies with laser sintering to directly apply conductors, resistors or heaters on metal substrates.

The new process combination, based on new paste and nanoink compositions, can be used, e.g., to directly integrate sensors for structural health monitoring of large metal components, such as power rotors and roller bearings of turbines, without brazing and adhesive bonding. The new solution can overcome the disadvantages of conventional hybrid sensors: The IKTS 3D printed electronics are resistant against aggressive media, operating temperatures of more than 200 °C, as well as high acceleration forces.
