FOM TECHNOLOGIES’s vision is to make life easier in the lab by providing solutions that optimise the research process and reduce time consumption. This vision stems from observing the difficulties both industry and scientists face when attempting to adapt industrial equipment to the needs of research when it comes to upscaling.
FOM TECHNOLOGIES thus aims to be a one-stop-shop for researchers who seek to:
- investigate their materials performance
- implement, understand and learn printing and coating
- gain access to quality materials, substrates and barrier films
- test devices using our testing equipment
What we provide
- Upscaling based on expert advice We know what researchers are concerned about when they consider upscaling from single device to multiple or roll-to-roll device processing. Through professional advice and service our clients are able to make informed equipment decisions. Our declared goal is to help researchers progress faster with quality research results.
- R&D development over time We provide equipment investment guidance in order to ensure that research and technology development is planned into the equipment design. This allows for continued development by extending or modifying the initial equipment configuration.
- Equipment designed for R&D FOM TECHNOLOGIES provides cost effective solutions through equipment designed for R&D processing - not industrial equipment retro-fitted to research.
- Minimizing materials consumption Materials consumption is a key element and we provide solutions designed to minimise materials consumption during process runs.
- Research applications FOM TECHNOLOGIES readily participates in joint research applications through partnerships with relevant researchers/research groups. We believe that a strong team of applicants increases the chances of receiving grants and thus generates mutual progress.
How we started - FOM history
FOM TECHNOLOGIES was founded in 2012 by Martin Kiener and Torben Damgaard Nielsen.
FOM TECHNOLOGIES originates from what was formerly known as Risø National Laboratory for Sustainable Energy, now incorporated into the Technical University of Denmark (DTU) and was formed as a result of demand for qualitative product solutions within polymer solar cell research. The company was formed by former employees at DTU and partners from the printing industry.
Over the last 5 years we've developed a large range of machines for coating and printing thin film and flexible printed electronics that is used in laboratories and factories in more than 25 different countries on 5 continents. You can find a selection of our product here: See our products.
