Junior Research Group Advanced Manufacturing started

A flexible and universally applicable manufacturing technology offers great potential, both for the development of future mobility solutions and for the production technology itself.

A junior research group has been established for this within the Innovation Campus Future Mobility (ICM) in the strategic field of Advanced Manufacturing. This junior research group with a funding period of 5 years has now started at the Institut fuer Strahlwerkzeuge (IFSW). Up to 5 scientists will work on the research and development of the key technologies for a universal machine within the framework of this junior research group. The focus of the work is on the advancement of the system technology with regard to a flexible realization of manufacturing processes from all 6 main production groups according to DIN 8580 on one and the same system, considering the combination of laser-based manufacturing processes.

The topics investigated by the junior research group cover a wide range. Highly dynamic and simultaneously highly precise kinematics are investigated as well as control architectures for distributed real-time applications that can be reconfigured during run-time. Furthermore, research is conducted on adaptable and intelligent process diagnostics for cross-process use for in-situ quality control. Last but not least, the cognitive capabilities of the system technology for self-adaptation and self-optimization are also among the research topics. This includes investigations on the technological interactions between the processes in the combination of processes and the resulting implications and potentials for the production sequences as well as research on digital process images and “backwards”-models for parameter prediction.

For the conduction of this interdisciplinary work in the junior research group, the Institut fuer Strahlwerkzeuge (IFSW), the Institute for Machine Tools (IfW), and the Institute for Control Engineering of Machine Tools and Manufacturing Units (ISW) of the University of Stuttgart, as well as the Institute of Production Science (wbk) of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) contribute with their expertise in a close cooperation.
