Research & Development

The fascination for high-tech

fionec regularly collaborates with partners from the business and academic communities on R&D projects. Through this exchange of knowledge and creative ideas, we keep up with the latest technological developments. This allows us to provide our customers with innovative products that meet the highest of quality standards.

Environment of excellence

Operating from its base at Aachen, fionec GmbH also benefits from its integration into the top-quality R&D environment of the local technical elite university, the Rheinisch-Westfälische Technische Hochschule (RWTH). Also, during several years of intensive development activities at the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT, close ties have been established with the scientists and engineers at the IPT Department for Production Metrology and Quality Management.

Current R&D projects

There are no current R&D projects.

Closed R&D projects


Development of a system for generating customized technical instructions for the entire product life cycle in an AR environment.


Development of fiber-coupled tools for resource-efficient laser-assisted precision machining of high-strength materials.
This project is funded as part of the European Union’s response to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Innovation Voucher

The innovation project “Flexible Roughness Measurement” focuses on the development of a novel measuring device that enables a very flexible measurement of roughness on precision components.
The voucher is awarded as part of the ET2SMEs funding initiative for the development of innovative SME applications in technology fields related to the new Einstein telescope.

DPP – MaGeoOptik

Development of a fiber-optic measuring system for the contactless inspection of precision-manufactured lenses with complex geometries.


Development of an integrated measuring system for the rapid, high-accuracy inspection of Fresnel lenses at production speed.


Development of robust measuring technology used in manufacturing to perform contactless high-speed measurements at up to 1 MHz and with nanometer precision.
