Manufacturing Processes


Description / Outline

The variety of manufacturing processes is reflected in the wide range of research topics within the group Manufacturing Processes. One research field is mechanical joining of dissimilar materials, whereby a focus also is on the versatility of joining processes. Ultrasonic-assisted metal forming as well as hybrid parts and processes based on the combination of additive manufacturing and forming technologies are further focal points of the scientific work of the group. The linking with digitisation also is of interest. The central issues of the research work primarily comprise the development of a fundamental process understanding, the introduction of innovative processes as well as the further development of existing processes including the determination and expansion of current process limits.
