Professorship Micromanufacturing Technology

Research of the Professorship Micromanufacturing Technology

The research activities of the Professorship Micromanufacturing are focused on the research and development of manufacturing technologies and systems of micro- and ultraprecision technologies as well as the realization of projects in cooperation with partners from industry. The realization of complex projects is accomplished by close cooperation with the Fraunhofer Institute of Machine Tools and Forming Technology, which department Precision- and Micromanufacturing is managed by Prof. Schubert, as well as many partners from industry and science.
