We help you with your technical problems –neutrally and confidentially

We advise you independently, confidentially and competently. Our experience in plastics technology covers the full value chain. The areas of work at IKV include the usual processing methods of extrusion and injection moulding, plus a wide variety of special processes and technologies for processing fibre composites. We not only have wide-ranging expertise on all questions concerning the materials themselves, such as thermoplastics, thermosetting plastics, elastomers and material composites, we also have experience in product design. Furthermore, our direct access to damage analysis tests makes us a broadly diversified consulting partner. 


We will be pleased to advise and support you in, for example:

  • Auditing of products
  • Evaluation of processes
  • Assessment of error potential
  • Damage analysis
  • Expert opinions

The scientific environments of IKV and RWTH Aachen University guarantee that we can always work confidentially, independently and with the highest level of expertise. This puts in us in a position to tackle complex problems and come up with a solution. Above all, with the aid of an objective, solution-oriented procedure, we can also help to resolve matters of conflict between supply chain partners to their joint satisfaction.

We can, of course, also offer expert advice in product and process development
