Materials and Production Engineering

Research Field

At the center of this focus is the optimized and material-specific processing of polymer materials and metals. Extrusion technology, injection molding and thermoforming are the focus of the research activities in plastics technology, with a special focus on the tribological and rheological interactions in plastic processing systems and tools.

The improvement of the properties of tool steels and modern steels for lightweight construction is the core of the R & D activity in metals, with the emphasis on heat treatment, forming and surface technology.

For research and development in plastic manufacturing processes, two thermoforming systems, a measuring extruder and a blown film line are available. (DSC, DMA, SEM with EDX, confocal microscopy, contact angle measurement, XRD, GDOES, metallography, quenching-forming- Dilatometry, etc.) create the necessary experimental basis for the generation of material data, which is supplemented by modern simulation techniques.

The focus of current R & D activities is on the following areas:

>> Plastics processing (plastic tribology, practical rheology, simulation of plastic manufacturing processes, screw plastification systems, injection molding, thermoforming)
>> Forming technology (cold and hot forming, light metal forming, tool wear) >> Heat treatment technology (process optimization, surface hardening) Surface technology (plasma nitriding, PACVD, wear behavior)
>> Metallurgy and Alloy Development (ESU, High Strength Steels, Tool Steels)
>> Rapid Prototyping, -Tooling, -Manufacturing
