Machine and Process Design

Machine and Process Design

We develop efficient processing and cleaning procedures for the food, pharmaceutical, packaging, biotechnology, electronics, and automotive industries. We have particular expertise in the processing of flexible materials and in wet-chemical and dry cleaning. In these areas we use structured process analyses and simulations to develop adaptive mechatronic, thermotronic, and fluid mechanical systems for existing processes and Industry 4.0 concepts. This development work is facilitated by new measuring and test methods for evaluating quality and material processing behavior. Modern methods of data analysis are used to determine weaknesses and opportunities for improving industrial processes and, together with assistance systems, can be used for innovative approaches for optimizing people-machine interactions.
