Pro­duc­tion tech­no­logy and mate­ri­als tech­no­logy are the cen­ter of the rese­arch acti­vi­ties of the Gün­ter-Köh­ler-Insti­tuts für Füge­tech­nik und Werk­stoff­prü­fung , in short ifw Jena. The sci­en­tists, engi­neers and tech­ni­ci­ans work with part­ners from indus­try, com­merce and uni­ver­si­ties as well as other rese­arch insti­tu­tes to deve­lop inno­va­tive pro­ducts and tech­no­logy solu­ti­ons in the areas of ultra short pulse laser pro­ces­sing, addi­tive manu­fac­tu­ring, dif­fu­sion bon­ding and mate­rial sci­ence. Fur­ther­more ifw has strong exper­tise in indus­try 4.0 rela­ted indus­trial and manu­fac­tu­ring appli­ca­ti­ons. As a non-uni­ver­sity, non-pro­fit indus­trial rese­arch insti­tu­tion, the insti­tute con­ducts pre­com­pe­ti­tive, appli­ca­tion-ori­en­ted rese­arch and deve­lo­p­ment for pro­duc­tion tech­no­logy solu­ti­ons. The Gün­ter-Köh­ler-Insti­tute is also working on publicly fun­ded rese­arch pro­jects and on behalf of the industry.
