Forster SMT GmbH is a highly innovative medium sized company and supplier of light weight, robust and fire-resistant fibre composite solutions. The service offered by SMT covers all important interfaces under one management, from conception and production to installation. The majority of our clients are from the railway sector but our solutions are also used in shipbuilding and construction.
SMT is a competent partner in optimising, designing, processing and production of fibre composites. We develop individual solutions for our clients to meet their specific technical requirements. Thanks to numerous R&D projects, also in cooperation with universities and other research institutions, SMT has meanwhile been able to develop extensive knowledge of materials and production technologies.

- Development of additive manufacturing technology of large-scale composites or core materials by using an industrial CNC robot,
- Innovative tooling concepts: transparent moulds, heated moulds; modular tools, flexible tool and other undercuts solutions
We are open minded for further fields of research or other applicable highly innovative ideas. If required we will give support by finding an appropriate accommodation, child care (Kindergarten) and by corresponding with public authorities.
