Microproduction Technology

From tool and die casting for serial and mass production to the direct fabrication of micro components and microstructured parts, the Application Center for Microproduction Technology (AMP) at the Production Technology Center Berlin (PTZ) is superbly well positioned as a research provider for a broad variety of ends. The range of services offered stretches from development of special technological solutions and development of production facilities to the design of complete process lines.

The comprehensive facilities of the AMP – including qualified experts and state of the art machines, measuring devices and software tools – facilitate evolution of holistic solutions informed and enriched by specialized knowledge, while AMP’s integration in a broad web of networks opens up the way for successful R&D projects that are both systemic and systematic in approach.

AMP’s technical facilities include laboratories for ultra precision machining, high precision machining, erosion machining and laser material machining as well as a die casting machine and state of the art technology for surface and machine evaluation.
