Research Group
Product and Process Monitoring


The process and product monitoring group develops monitoring strategies based on the correlation between process parameters and their influences on a work piece’s quality. A requirement for the development of an efficient monitoring strategy is the unification of process understanding and sensor design. Our applications define the applicability of control-integrated solutions or the necessity for external sensor technology.  


Sensors and Data Aquisition

The basis of every process monitoring and control is a deep understanding of data generation. To this end, the Process Monitoring group is researching new sensor technologies and evaluating existing ones... more...



Data Analysis

Process Monitoring

In the course of Industry 4.0, profound knowledge of the current status of all running processes in a company is indispensable. Monitoring of the production processes ensures trouble-free operation and increases efficiency, as safety tolerances can be reduced... more...



Process Control

The process force is the decisive process parameter for milling. A constant process force has a positive influence on process reliability (tool breakage), product quality (geometric accuracy), profitability (wear behaviour of the tool), and productivity (process speed)... more...
