The keystone of the institute is made up of the three main fields of research:
- Manufacturing and Materials Technology (FWT)
- Machines, Equipment and Process Automation (MAP)
- as well as Production Systems (PRO)
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
- Additive Manufacturing
- Industry 4.0
- Sustainable Production
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.
