IcoFlex offers comprehensive R&D services for companies wishing to develop new products or to acquire new technologies. It provides a multidisciplinary team of highly qualified engineers and researchers, as well as its infrastructure to carry out and manage your research projects. The company’s in-house fabrication facilities also allow the production of resulting prototypes either as single units or small series. Our technical expertise in micro and nano-manufacturing, material sciences, chemistry, electro-mechanical design, thermal management, and IT development have already been successfully demonstrated in many projects for our clients.

This platform of services is dynamic and modular. Our independently conducted research allows us to look past existing solutions to find elegant and radical technical solutions that often result in patent filings for our customers. Our proposed platform also includes client support during all phases of the project, namely problem specification, creation of the technical solutions list, planning and definition of the objectives, and the integration or deployment of the product.
