Paper Technology Foundation (PTS)
PTS was founded in 1951 as a research and service institute based in Heidenau near Dresden. It supports companies in all industries in the development and application of modern fibre-based solutions.
The main areas of competence are:
Fibres & Composites: Development of special papers and composites, semi-finished products and bio-composites and opening up new markets.
Functional surfaces: Development of coated barriers, packaging with new functions and non-contact manufacturing processes as well as the functionalization of web materials, optimization of printability and printability and surface evaluation.
Innovative measurement technology: Sensor and measurement technology solutions for effective and efficient process control and for ensuring product quality, especially in recovered paper management.
Materials testing & analytics: Material testing and analysis for paper, board, paperboard/corrugated board and nonwovens, composite materials, packaging, paper processing and printing products, dispersions, emulsions, pigments, water, wastewater and residual materials.
PTS has well-equipped analytical laboratories and a modern pilot plant for the innovative development of paper, coatings and wet laid nonwovens.
In its training programme, PTS imparts up-to-date paper technology knowledge as required in paper production, paper processing and for the use of paper as a new material.
In addition, PTS is a proud member of the AiF Arbeitsgemeinschaft industrieller Forschungsvereinigungen "Otto von Guericke" e.V. and the ZUSE Gemeinschaft as a transfer-oriented research institute. Since 2020 PTS is also a member of the research alliance DRESDEN concept.
