Fraunhofer IKTS is a competent partner when it comes to monitoring materials, components, assemblies, plants and machinery as well as the pertaining manufacturing methods. This includes the analysis and assessment of components and processes, as well as their optimization.
For this purpose, IKTS develops sensors (optical, acoustic, electromagnetic), systems and techniques for condition monitoring, which are implemented while plants are being built and taken into operation. These systems can also be installed in existing infrastructures. They are designed for harsh conditions and offer tools for the non-destructive detection of defects, real-time monitoring and, associated with this, condition-based maintenance or optimization of plants.
The customized solutions help to improve plant safety in full compliance with all standards. They are developed in close cooperation with machine manufacturers and users.
