Start-up & Spin-off companies

  • GT + W GmbH: The core competences include developing and customising gravure and flexographic printing presses for printed electronics. GT + W are following the approach of a full-service provider, offering systems and equipment for functional printing as well as engineering and consulting services.
  • otego GmBH: otego develops innovative thermoelectric generators (TEG) as an independent energy supply for wireless sensors and actuators. TEGs convert heat directly into electric power as soon as there is a condition of differences in temperature.
  • peptech: peptech is a newly founded technology company with focus on the development and production of functional printing inks, process development of flexible and printed electronics. peptech stands for “printed electronic process technology”.
