Development

The engineers in our research and development department take part in numerous funded and non-funded research projects in the field of microsystem technology. Our intensive collaboration with institutes, partner companies and customers results in innovative products ranging from engineering to series production as well as new procedures and manufacturing processes.

With their sound experience in the fields of MID technology, sensor technology, housing technology and microfluidics the 2E development team is able to offer a complete range of services from feasibility studies, development support and prototype production through to series production.

2E research projects

R2R – Production of MID-based microsystems MID (Mechatronic Integrated Devices) have usually been produced up to now as moulded parts or when advantageous. The Reel 2 Reel research project, which was launched as part of the “top microTEC southwest cluster”, seeks to develop the production technology for the reel-to-reel production of MID and to create a production platform. Konsortium Consortium RW-Implant The goal of this research project funded by the Federal Ministry of Education and Research is the development of an innovative system for the hearing-impaired, consisting of a hearing aid, optical transmitters, and receivers 2E intends to produce a miniaturised, MID-based micro-camera for testing the function of the IR-route. Consortium Project Administrator KonKaMis The research project was launched as one of the projects of the “microTEC southwest top cluster”. A total of 3 institutes and 6 companies are involved in the development of a micro-camera with integrated lighting. The housing should be designed as MID and the camera later produced by 2E.

Our development process

Series production

The goal of 2E’s customer-specific developments or the company’s own developments is the mass production of the resulting components or systems. They can be manufactured in a semi or fully automated process, depending on the volume.

Prototyping

Prototyping leads to time and cost benefits for MID product developments. We produce fully functional prototypes from original materials within just a few weeks time. They are based on the three-dimensional CAD data which are integrated in the subsequent processes.
