Technology transfer and consulting

We share our technological knowledge with you.

The FGK cooperates closely with industrial partners to develop practical solutions. Through this cooperation, we ensure that our research results can be transferred directly into industrial applications. This helps to strengthen the competitiveness of companies and drive forward innovative technologies.

Process optimization (OAP)

The FGK has developed the methodical OAP (Output Accepted Process) concept to optimize production processes and utilize internal company experience. It enables the reduction of the reject rate, the creation of a reliable inspection concept and the optimization of communication. OAP identifies potential along the process chain and implements targeted measures, including comprehensive inventories and the use of statistical methods such as SPC.

For more information on how the OAP concept can support your company, contact us today. Let’s work together to optimize your production processes and increase your efficiency.
