Technology Knowledge

As a spin-off of the Fraunhofer-community, KEX Knowledge Exchange AG is perfectly embedded in the RWTH Aachen Campus. Our platform provides comprehensive technical knowledge, based on interaction with renowned research entities and global industrial players.

Our technology experts frequently scout for the latest applications, materials, production technologies and evaluate them regarding economic and technological aspects. These results are available in hundreds of well arranged profiles linked to each other. KEX.knowledge is the technological focus part of our service proposition. These dedicated areas like Additive Manufacturing or Digital Production offer a broad portfolio of focussed content and tools coping with the highly dynamic development in these fields of interest.

Combined with a mighty set of filter and visualization tools like radars, maps, tree structures and export functions you will find a unique solution to cope with major question marks in the context of the selected knowledge area.

Currently, we have published the Knowledge Area »Additive Manufacturing«, that is dedicated to the different aspects of the modern additive manufacturing practice. Further Knowledge Areas, coping with Artificial Intelligence, Digital Production and Energy Systems are in the starting blocks and will be available from Q3/2020.
