The Neue Materialien Bayreuth GmbH (NMB)

Neue Materialien Bayreuth GmbH is a non-academic research company developing various novel materials for lightweight constructions, from polymers and fiber-reinforced composites to metals, including also the processing. We provide application-oriented solutions by optimizing available materials and production processes.

Our company also offers a broad spectrum of services for material analysis and component testing with state of the art processes and laboratory technologies.
In addition to R&D, in direct cooperation with industrial partners or within government-funded projects, we accept orders for prototypes and small series productions, as well as mold validations.

Our work with polymers focuses on bead foams, special injection molding techniques (esp. foam injection molding) and fiber-reinforced thermoplastics and high-performance composites. With metals, we concentrate on additive manufacturing based on polymers und metals, thermally induced forming processes and hot forming.

The unique advantage of NMB lies in the highly modern industrial scale production machinery. They create the basis for our solutions, which are directly applicable to industry. If demanded, our investigations can cover the whole process line. In this matter, a close working relationship with our partners is very important to us.

Furthermore, we provide profit by synergy effects of an interdisciplinary exchange of knowledge between our materials science engineering experts from the fields of plastics and metals. Based on our close contact to departments at the University of Bayreuth engaged in materials-related research our partners can benefit from our vast experience in coordinating the university’s competences in fundamental research and application development.

The results of this approach are ready-to-use and profitable solutions, due to the application-related research and development made by NMB.

I wish you inspiring ideas, while exploring NMB, and I am looking forward to cooperate with you.

Sincerely yours,

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Volker Altstädt
