Team Leader: Matthias Beyrle
In the aerospace industry there is the need for new automated production solutions due to the comparatively low production rates of aircraft in combination with the high number of part variants.
The Automation is one key element in reducing the production costs and to increasing part quality.
In the Process and Automation (PNA) team, our experts develop flexible, sensor-based production processes, e.g. new robust manipulation technologies.
For the development of cost-optimised parts it is essential to already consider possible manufacturing processes and their boundary conditions during the design phase. This enables us to develop the optimal part and process design.
In the PNA Team, we consider all manufacturing processes along the entire process chain, from material delivery to the finished part.
Drawing on many years of experience and in-depth knowledge of modern production technologies, we are able to
This enables us to develop innovative and robust manufacturing processes.
Validation at industrial scale
Our research activities focus on the maturation of manufacturing technologies at full-scale dimensions to make them more efficient and robust.
For this purpose, automation solutions are developed jointly with our partners in an industrial environment to make manufacturing processes not only faster and more efficient, but also reproducible and sustainable.
