The Chair of Machine Tools deals with the design, investigation and optimization of machine elements that are combined into mechatronic systems. The chair also focuses on intelligent control and automation concepts based on the Internet of Production. By linking process data with models, a detailed digital image of the component, machine and process can be generated.
