As a global leader, FLABEG is continuously striving to progress – also in cooperation with the following institutes:

German Aerospace Center (DLR), Cologne

The German Aerospace Center (DLR), Institute of Technical Thermodynamics and Solar Research in Cologne, develops precise measuring techniques for analyzing the quality and efficiency of CSP components. This is also where photogrammetry was validated – a technique whereby digital photos are analyzed from different perspectives in order to closely examine the bending precision and the accuracy of the assembly of parabolic trough mirrors. The resulting measurements have practical consequences for us at FLABEG. They are used to drive the already high bending precision of our products toward perfection.

Zwiesel Glass School

Zwiesel Glass School, a public education center for glass, is the only technical college for glass in Bavaria and has a good international reputation. FLABEG supports the school by its membership in the club “Friends of the Zwiesel Glass School”, which promotes the school by financing equipment and trips to exhibitions and museums, as well as scholarships. Thus, FLABEG helps to create a basis for the education of specialists in the glass industry. 

Fraunhofer IPA

The Institute focuses on the following areas of research: Factory Operation, Digital Factory and Production (Measurement) Technology. The IFF involves close cooperation with the application-orientated Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA and is engaged in the innovative Demonstration Centre Industry 4.0, in coordination with the IPA.

Deggendorf Institute of Technology

Deggendorf Institute of Technology (THD) offers modern undergraduate and postgraduate courses for over 5,000 students in the following fields: Civil and Construction Engineering, Natural Sciences, Electrical Engineering and Informatics, Mechanical Engineering and Mechatronics, Media Technology as well as Healthcare and Economic Sciences.

Three pillars characterize the main focus of the Deggendorf Institute of Technology: practical teaching, research & development in the technologies of the future as well as in-service training.

At the technology and healthcare campus of THD, experts develop application-oriented special solutions, in close cooperation with companies. Research, development and teaching play a central role in the field of mechatronic systems at the Deggendorf Institute of Technology. FLABEG FE GmbH is an important partner in this regard.

Cham Technology Campus

Founded in 2010, Cham Technology Campus is a research institution of DIT – Deggendorf Institute of Technology. The concept of the Campus is based on the unique relationship between research, development and teaching in the field of mechatronics, robotics and automatisation.

With the technology transfer centers a concept that is unique in Bavaria has been implemented: An institute has opened up new possibilities for many industry sectors and works in close collaboration on the development of a new technology image for the region with partner communes and the region’s economy such as FLABEG FE GmbH from Furth i. W.
