Thanks to the diversity of its skills and its connections in the world of research and industry, PliFalTec can intervene and mobilise its experts in all sectors of activity where folding applications appear as relevant solutions: packaging, mobile architectures, mechanical engineering, medical devices, robotics, microsystems, etc.

Its experts are familiar with all origami techniques (classic, rigid, dynamic, 3D, modular, tessellations with a unique skill around crumpling), know how to select and work with various materials (paper, cardboard, fabrics, plastics, metals) and bring together a variety of skills, notably in engineering, design, architecture and industrialisation, thus covering a large number of sectors of activity.
