The Fraunhofer Project Center for Advanced Manufacturing @ ITA consists on the offer of competencies both from Fraunhofer IPK and from CCM-ITA at the Brazilian market.

The Fraunhofer Project Center for Advanced Manufacturing @ ITA consists on the offer of competencies both from Fraunhofer IPK and from CCM-ITA at the Brazilian market.

The Fraunhofer IPK and the Competence Center in Manufacturing (CCM) from ITA started in 2009 a cooperation that is nowadays recognized as very successful, especially due to the large number of high impact projects running by both institutions in Brazil.

ITA offers research and education in distinct engineering fields, including aerospace, aeronautical, civil, mechanical, computer and electronics engineering. It is located inside the Department of Aerospace Science & Technology (DCTA), which is considered one of the biggest research centers in Latin America. ITA was responsible for some major achievements in Brazil in the last 60 years, including the foundation of the Brazilian Aeronautical Industry (EMBRAER), the development of the Automotive Ethanol Program as well as the enhancement of the Telecommunications Industry (Telebrás).
The Competence Center in Manufacturing (CCM) is a laboratory of ITA, specialized in all stages of the product lifecycle. CCM conducts research aimed at the development of the Brazilian industry, fostering innovation in the manufacturing area. Together with partner companies, CCM develops products and solutions in the areas of manufacturing processes, automation, metrology, digital manufacturing and structural analysis. In addition, concepts such as Integrated Product Development (DIP) and Lean Manufacturing are used to increase efficiency and quality of industrial project partners

Fraunhofer IPK in Berlin stands for 40 years of excellence in production science. The institute conducts applied research and development across the whole process spectrum of the manufacturing industry – from product development, production processes, maintenance of investment goods, and product recycling to the design and management of manufacturing companies. Fraunhofer IPK also transfers production technology solutions to areas of application outside of industry such as transport and security. Fraunhofer IPK is structured in the divisions Corporate Management, Virtual Product Creation, Production Systems, Joining and Coating Technology, Automation Technology, and Quality Management, as well as the exploration area Traffic Engineering. Close collaboration between divisions means that Fraunhofer IPK is able to tackle even extremely complex issues.

As an institute of the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft, Fraunhofer IPK tailors its work closely to the needs and requirements of customers and partners. With its market orientation and high real-world value, its R&D helps to sharpen their long-term competitive edge. The Institute develops forward-looking novel solutions and modernizes, optimize and extend existing technologies and applications. In all its endeavors Fraunhofer IPK seeks to harmonize economic considerations with the imperatives of resource efficiency, sustainability, and environmental compatibility. Apart from contract research, Fraunhofer IPK also conducts pre-competitive research projects to develop innovative concepts for tomorrow’s production, working closely with its partners to transform the basic innovations thus delivered into marketable products.

The Fraunhofer IPK and the Competence Center in Manufacturing (CCM) from ITA started in 2009 a cooperation that is nowadays recognized as very successful, especially due to the large number of high impact projects running by both institutions in Brazil. Both CCM and Fraunhofer IPK currently offer a large number of similar and complementary products and services in their portfolios focusing on the acquisition and development of industrial R&D-projects in Brazil.

Intending the further extension of this collaboration and also the successful match of competences in the Brazilian market, both institutions seek for the alignment of a common strategy for expanding their activities in Brazil. That alignment of strategies goes through the implementation of the Fraunhofer Project Center for Innovations in Advanced Manufacturing – FPC@ITA. The cooperative research work is carried out by a mixed-team of research assistants from CCM/ITA and from Fraunhofer IPK, working both in Brazil and in Germany.
