Fields of Research

The keystone of the institute is made up of the three main research departments:

  • Manufacturing and Materials Technology
  • Machines, Equipment and Process Automation 
  • as well as Production Systems

containing knowledge and experience of selected production technology areas. 

New areas with a high innovation and beneficial potential are developed in the newly established research topics:

  • Micro-Production
  • Lightweight Manufacturing
  • Electric Mobility  
  • Virtual Production
  • Life Cycle Performance

This enables us to explore topics as a whole and develop them in a target orientated way. 
The Matrix organization enables individual topics to benefit from a huge wealth of knowledge by integrating them in the current research areas and facilitates a quick and in-depth processing of future orientated cross-sectional areas.
