Since 1993 the Sächsische Institut für die Druckindustrie (SID) is a research partner for the whole industry. Most of our research assignments are orders from small and medium-sized companies which we support with our profound know-how. Subsidized by Federal Ministries and Federal States we are also engaged in market-related industrial research with the aim to develop new, trendsetting technologies for the graphic arts industry. We are also integrated in projects of industrial co-operative research for which branch associations like VDMA/FGD and bvdm/Research and Technology are responsible.
Whether processing technologies or graphic arts machine manufacturing: In all fields of our activities we are permanently in search of innovative and pioneering solutions. Contract research for small and mediumsized companies With its profound know-how the SID supports companies with not enough research capacity of their own. Such support can be special measuring tasks, the development of complete machine modules or subjects like: Development of special machine modules, measuring and testing devices In cooperation with machine manufacturers and printing houses the SID develops and manufactures special machine modules, measuring and testing devices for global sale, for instance, the LUCHS register measuring system, today part of the „hand luggage“ of each assembling team, or instruments for the measurement of
