As prototypes and product ideas could be recycled to now much faster the institutes. “Dr. Thomas link: we open floodgates between science and medium-sized industries.” Advantage is that it could occur in this exciting field of activity as independent companies. So are we taken seriously by the industry”, says Dr. Thomas link. Another success factor was the deep, interdisciplinary expertise of the team of MicroMountains applications of AG. The staff worked in research institutes and enterprises and thus speaks the language of science and industry.
Micro System technology, application such as Mechatronics, medical technology, plastic injection moulding and some more fields. The Profit has compatible beliefs. Martin Zimmermann, Managing Director of Visenso GmbH, confirmed the Benefits of MicroMountains applications of AG. “He says: the application is like a Turbo for companies that want to enter in the micro technologies.” The Stuttgart-based high-tech company Visenso developed highly sensitive micro motion sensors together with OJSC MicroMountains applications for mobile controls that can be used in virtual reality Labs or computer game devices. We win through cooperation with OJSC MicroMountains applications”additional impetus and synergies for our research and development activities, Prof. Dr. Ulrich Mescheder, Managing Director of the Institute for applied research (IAF) and head of the laboratory of micro technology at the Hochschule Furtwangen University (HFU) reported. The model of the Application Center allows a particularly efficient, fast, and geared to the needs of companies cooperation in development projects. The MicroMountains applications AG was founded in early 2007 in the framework of the technology initiative of the IHK Schwarzwald-Baar-Heuberg and funded by the Federal Research Ministry founded.
In advance, the MicroMountains network Association was built already, who promotes among business start-ups and new recruits and had conceived the joint-stock company. As of October 1, 2007, the AG recorded operating with three employees. 2008 is her first full financial year. 2009 starts the second funding phase. It is planned that the AG profitable and independent acts in three to four years on the market. In addition to domestic companies also companies outside Germany among the clientele of the MicroMountains applications of AG. Moreover, contacts could be developed already in the United States. Thomas Albiez advises in spite of current economic and financial challenges small and medium-sized enterprises should now go into the micro system technology”, as Chairman of the Board of MicroMountains applications AG and Chief Executive of IHK Schwarzwald-Baar-Heuberg in this context. With the help of the Application Center, interested companies in many fields might one Develop competitive advantage without having to invest in their own research and development departments or in clean room production facilities. The trend towards miniaturization will entail a significant sales growth. Current forecasts that the volume of the micro system technology market increases every year in the coming years by up to 30 percent.
