Forms of Cooperation

Do you have a technical production problem? We solve it!

Researchers at iwb are developing solution strategies for efficient production. The professorships, the Chair of Management Sciences and Assembly Technology, the Chair of Machine Tools and Manufacturing Engineering as well as the Chair for Production Technology and Energy Storage Systems, define the research content and thematic focus of the iwb: these are in the areas of production management and logistics, machine tools, assembly technology and robotics, laser technology, sustainable production and battery production.

Bilateral industrial projects

Scientific and problem-oriented processing of questions: Short- to medium-term contract research with different variants depending on the contractual arrangements in order to distribute rights for the use of the solutions developed.

Publicly funded projects

Medium and long-term research projects in a network of research and industrial partners.

Industrial working groups

Bundling expertise: Long-term projects for joint solution development in a low-competitive field of activity.

Long-term "TUM-model"

Strong industrial orientation and direct involvement of a member of staff in the chair. The person employed at iwb has the opportunity to do a doctorate and has access to all available resources.

"What do machine tools need to perform perfectly in manufacturing? With the support of the iwb, we were able to contribute our knowledge of the requirements of contract manufacturers for machining centers to the vibration analysis of the TU Munich in a compact and highly practice-relevant way. The technical data gained from this collaboration helps us to optimize our machining centers for daily customer requirements."

"With the help of AM process simulation, we can predict the distortions in the run-up to 3D printing on the one hand and also significantly reduce them in a targeted manner via automated geometry adjustment on the other, in order to largely enable first-time-right AM manufacturing. We have thus further consolidated our company's role as a technological pioneer in the additive field. We will particularly benefit from these capabilities when we need to implement complex components in a dimensionally accurate manner. We recommend iwb as an innovative, competent and extremely reliable research partner."

 “At MAPAL, we look back to a harmonic cooperation with the iwb, providing fast solutions for our problems. Consequently, the project for damping tools supported on both sides has been completed successfully, particularly in terms of the reached damping."
