The Chair of Metal Forming and Casting is also networked in industry and cooperates in the field of research and development with a wide variety of companies in project partnerships. Therefore, five scientific employees of the Chair of Forming and Foundry Technology visited the foundry of the project partner Pinter Guss GmbH in Deggendorf.
During the technical presentations by foundry specialist Dr.-Ing. Thomas Greß - who himself had completed his studies at the Chair of Metal Forming and Casting at TUM - current trends as well as challenges in the foundry industry were discussed and debated.
Lasting impressions and insights were gained during a subsequent plant tour. A highlight was the practical demonstration of the new Trebi robot, which is programmed and used for cleaning castings.
In conclusion, all visitors agreed that it is just as important to look beyond one's own nose as it is to acquire the content-related skills taught at the universities.
