Equipment

The institute deals with various research topics ranging from planning to the completion of components.

In order to carry out the design of the components, the institute has various CAD programs at its disposal. These are used to create drawings of the components to be manufactured. With the help of the CAD data, the designs can be revised by means of simulations. Our computer pool is equipped with software that covers various areas of production engineering.

The materials used in production can be examined in our accredited analysis department. On the one hand, this serves basic research, which is important for understanding the process sequences, and on the other hand, these investigations provide material parameters which serve as a basis for the simulations to be carried out. In addition, the mechanical properties of the finished component can be examined.

The pilot plant serves on the one hand for the experimental investigation of the processing procedures, and on the other hand for the production of small series and test specimens with which special investigations can subsequently be carried out.
