Fraunhofer Machine Tools

Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology

The Dresden Fraunhofer IWU pursues the model of resource-efficient production with a focus on efficiency technologies and intelligent production systems for the manufacture of body and powertrain components as well as the optimization of the associated forming and machining production processes. The development of lightweight structures and technologies for processing new materials, as well as the transfer of functions to assemblies, are key success factors.
