The machine tools division of the Machine Tools and Manufacturing Technology department investigates topics such as construction and optimization of machine tools assemblies and components in application-oriented joint projects with institutional and industrial partners. The objective of our research and development is the increase of production- and working accuracy of machine tools through the improvement of static, dynamic and thermal properties as well as the expansion of machine specific working areas. Realizing that, we analyze the process-oriented structural reactions and optimize structural components constructively. Furthermore, we develop methods for customer-specific construction of components, which include goods and services of production, maintenance and repair of machine tools.

Production processes offer an enormous potential of improvement in energy and resource efficiency. As a superordinate topic we pursue the increase of energy and resource efficiency of production processes and production process chains to improve the performance of productions technologies. Through targeted configuration of the mechanisms of the manufacturing processes, solutions for demanding processing tasks are developed, thus increasing the performance of production technologies. An important task is the adaptation of production processes and production process chains for special application areas, such as the production of turbo engines, automobile manufacturing or tool- and mold manufacturing.

Our test field consist of more than 90 test and 9 connected laboratories on a total area of 9,500 m². The IWF is located at Produktionstechnischen Zentrum (PTZ), which also houeses the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology (IPK)
