Research and development
AMAG‘s research strategy is aimed at enhancing competitiveness through the development of customer-specific problem solutions and special products, and thus makes a significant contribution to the growth strategy. A high degree of specialisation, production technologies and farreaching digitalisation play a key role in this endeavour. The optimisation of material properties and the efficient use of materials are also part of the research and development activities.
(R&D) AMAG relies on the cooperation with key customers in technologically challenging sectors with high innovation potential.
Further development as the driving force
AMAG‘s innovation, research and development activities are the driver for increasing competitiveness and the development of customer-specific problem solutions as part of the strategy regarding profitable growth. Many of the product innovations directly or indirectly address current and global social and ecological issues, such as the scarcity of fossil resources, the circular economy, climate change and mobility. Special attention is paid to solutions that enable closed-loop concepts with customers as well as alloy-to-alloy recycling, recycling-friendly alloys, reduce environmental impacts and offer new and improved application options.
