Research Group
Modelling and Evaluation of Cutting Processes


The fields of research of the group modelling and simulation are described by the topics specified down. In all domains different variants of procedures are worked on. Of many years extensive knowledge within the entire domain of cutting technology was acquired by the research, which permits both process developments and procedure optimisations. In close cooperation with the industry modern technologies are compiled to working maturity. Due to changes of technical and economical cases technical concepts must be constantly examined, improved and compared on current developments. The WZL supports an early consideration of new technology concepts and evaluation of alternative combinations of procedures.
