Watttron was founded in 2016. The idea for our company grew out of the Institute of Natural Materials Technology of the Technical University Dresden and the Fraunhofer Institute for Process Engineering and Packaging Dresden. To this day, we maintain a close relationship with these scientific institutions. The company consists of the original 4 founders and a further 20 employees. Our company is located in Freital near Dresden, the capital of Saxony, also known as Silicon Saxony.
Watttron has developed an innovative heating technology for thermoforming processes. We manufactures and sell teh heating system itself.
The special feature of the heating system is explained in short: In thermoforming processes, the forming behavior of the starting material is controlled by the temperature distribution. This offers maximum flexibility. Current heating systems are very inefficient under various aspects. For this purpose, watttron has developed and patented a heating system based on ceramic thick-film technology which, for the first time, makes it possible to generate a defined temperature field on small and large surfaces by contact heating. The so-called matrix heater (cera2heat®), which can be arranged several times as a module to heat larger surfaces, is similar to a TFT display (thin-film transistor display) with a large number of individually controllable heating circuits (pixels).
