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:
- 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.
