The laboratories of the Polymer Engineering Center have a wide range of polymer-processing machines ranging form traditional processes such as extrusion, injection molding or secondary processes like film blowing to advanced processes in the area of Additive Manufacturing. The research on lab and industrial scale equipment is complimented by a variety of characterization instrumentation as well as computing resources for numerical simulations.

A detailed description of the current available equipment and instrumentation can be found in the individual sections.
