Machines, Equipment and Process Automation (MAP)

Motivation and aim

Today's machine and handling technologies must meet the ever changing market conditions and the  constantly increasing technological requirements. Quantities, variety and configuration flexibility as well as low investment and maintenance costs are amongst the essential criteria.

The aim of the Machines, Equipment and Process Automation department is to develop innovative and integrated solutions for the Machine Tools and Mechatronics, Lightweight manufacturing and Electric Mobility.


Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jürgen Fleischer
