As the leading institute for resource-efficient manufacturing, we bank on highly flexible, scalable cognitive production systems using nature as an example. We consider the entire process chain using regenerative systems and circular economy in this context. We develop technologies and intelligent production plants and optimize forming, cutting, and joining manufacturing steps. Our range of services includes the development of innovative lightweight structures and technologies for processing new materials, functional transfer to assembly groups, and the latest technologies of additive manufacturing (3D printing). We present approaches for large-scale production of essential hydrogen systems, thus contributing to the transition to renewable energies.
