Our Company

“NanoCraft was born out of a fascinating piece of scientific history. The dream of the physicists Gerd Binnig and Heinrich Rohrer, now honoured with the Nobel Prize, was to penetrate directly into the world of quantum physics by means of mechanical actuators. In 1981, for example, they developed the scanning tunneling microscope in the IBM research laboratory near Zurich. In this way, they created an important foundation stone for nanotechnology, which is now developing rapidly. Dr. Sabri Akari was a co-developer of the chemical force microscopy CFM derived from scanning tunneling microscopy. Based on this foundation, the company NanoCraft was established in 2001 as a spin-off of the Max Planck Institute for Colloids and Interfaces Research Golm (MPI-KGF) at the Engen Innovation Centre”.

Dear Visitors,

On be­half of NanoCraftCoating we wel­come you on our homepage.

In an eco­nom­ic en­vi­ron­ment in which the tech­no­log­i­cal head start is be­com­ing cru­cial in de­cid­ing the suc­cess of whole the com­pa­ny, the ef­fi­cient and rapid con­ver­sion of re­search re­sults is be­com­ing more im­por­tant than ever. Un­der­stand­ing and an­a­lyz­ing sur­face pro­cess­es on the nano- and µ-scale is most es­sen­tial for the suc­cess in the de­vel­op­ment of novel sur­face sys­tems. Par­tic­u­lar­ly the de­vel­op­ment of ef­fi­cient coat­ing sys­tems, nano- and biotech­no­log­i­cal prod­ucts can be clear­ly ac­cel­er­at­ed.

Qual­i­fied in­ter­dis­ci­plinary skilled sci­en­tists with 18-years ex­pe­ri­ence are dis­cussing with the users their sur­face re­lat­ed prob­lems. Short as well as long term pro­jects can be ini­ti­at­ed with us. As our part­ner, you get the max­i­mum use from ex­pe­ri­ence at low­est costs and risks. NanoCraft with its ex­ten­sive Nano-Know-How, of­fers you a range of ad­vanced an­a­lyt­i­cal tools with qual­i­fied sci­en­tif­ic su­per­vi­sion in the frame­work of mis­sion ori­ent­ed re­search. Our team is work­ing on your prob­lmes in a well equipped lab­o­ra­to­ry. You will get the op­ti­mum of in­for­ma­tion and sup­port even after clo­sure of the pro­ject.

A large num­ber of first class com­pa­nies from dif­fer­ent in­dus­tri­al branch­es are al­ready work­ing with us and use the ob­tained in­for­ma­tion for their own de­vel­op­ment with high sat­is­fac­tion.

Be­come our part­ner to get the largest ben­e­fit of our tech­ni­cal ex­pe­ri­ence in this im­por­tant field.

Dr. Sabri Akari (company founder)

NanoCraft was established in 2001 as a spin-off of the Max Planck Institute for Colloid and Interfacial Research Golm (MPI-KGF) at the Engen Innovation Centre. The core competence of NanoCraft is the implementation of research and development projects in the fields of nanotechnology, biotechnology and surface technology. The uniqueness of the analytical techniques offered, the high level of surface expertise and the speed, flexibility and innovation in the implementation of research projects have enabled the successful development of new types of coatings to customer specifications. Several medium-sized and large German and international companies listed on the stock exchange have been won as regular customers.

In 2003, NanoCraft received the Innovation Award of the State of Baden Württemberg for the development of chemical force microscopy. In 2004, NanoCraft was awarded the international Euregio Bodensee Technology Prize.

Understanding and analyzing surface processes on nano- and µ-scale is most essential for the success in the development of novel surface systes. Particularly the development of efficient coating systems, nano- and biotechnological products can be clearly accelerated.” (Dr. Sabri Akari)
