A high level of innovative strength and great performance in functional surface technology make SAXONIA Galvanik a sought-after partner for customer-specific solutions. Our close networking and cooperation with university research at the Technical University Freiberg and the Technical University Ilmenau, as well as with institutes, authorities, chemical suppliers, tool manufacturers, process partners and inspection companies, ensure high added value along the entire process and production chain.

Innovation within the framework of association work

Associations form an important platform for the exchange of technical experience, for further training, research and development. As part of our association work, experts from SAXONIA Galvanik are involved in interlaboratory tests on chromium(VI)-free processes and their evaluation. We are also active in the working groups for occupational health and safety and fire protection, as well as in committees for evaluating or commenting on new standards or technical guidelines – in order to be a competent contact for our OEMs at the association level. Furthermore, we are involved in political work through the associations.
