The future of production technology

New
IFA | Artificial intelligence (AI) can enable predictions of delivery times and in this way improve the planning of engine maintenance. The Institute of Production Systems and Logistics (IFA) and MTU Maintenance Hannover GmbH are researching this topic.
New
IFUM | Forging processes are subject to significant fluctuations, resulting in extremely varying tool service lives. A mobile measuring concept is being developed at IFUM to record critical process parameters and build up a deeper understanding of the process.

IW | How can the forming behavior of promising but limited-formability engineering materials be improved? At the Institute of Materials Science (IW), research is being conducted into the so-called electroplastic effect: current pulses are intended to facilitate the plastic deformation of magnesium alloys.
IMPT | IDS | Measuring smallest forces precisely and within a very short time: This challenge is currently being researched by the Institute of Micro Production Technology (IMPT) in cooperation with the Institute of Dynamics and Vibration Research (IDS). The sensors used in this application are made of piezoelectric materials.
