Competent research partner

Partner in publicly-funded research projects

The ISAPS team has many years of experience in successfully applying for public third-party funding. Several publicly funded research projects are already running at ISAPS in cooperation with academic partners, Fraunhofer institutes and small, medium-sized and large companies. If we can complement your planned research consortium with our expertise, please do not hesitate to contact us.

For the production and analysis of components, ISAPS can access the equipment of the Polymer Institute of Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences (PIK)

Several FDM printers from well-known manufacturers (Multec, Ultimaker, Makerbot) as well as our own filament extruders are available, so that a wide variety of structures can be printed with customer-specific filaments. The SLA and SLS processes can also be used.

Numerous microscopic methods can be used to analyze the manufactured structures. In addition to incident and transmitted light microscopes, a scanning electron microscope is also available.

ISPAPS has its own µCT-Scanner: Bruker micro CT (SkyScan 1271) with a resolution up to < 0,45 µm/px
