Tailor-made High-tech

January, 2018

Six Fraunhofer Institutes have launched the “Go Beyond 4.0” lighthouse project to manufacture small batches and even single unique items under traditional mass production conditions in a way that saves resources and money. As part of the three-year, €8m project, the consortium will integrate digital printing (addition) and laser (ablation) technologies into mass production processes with demonstrators in three market-relevant fields: automotive -production (Smart Door), aviation (Smart Wing) and illumination (Smart Luminaire).

Lithography takes place in the clean room at the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems in Dresden, a key development and production center.
