Professorship of Welding Engineering


Research at the professorship - Overview

New materials and modern construction techniques confront welding technology with many challenges. In parallel to process technology, this primarily concerns the guarantee of properties of joined products.
Welding technology research at the professorship therefore pursues a holistic view in the context of process-structure-property relationships.


The main topics of our research activities are:
  • Development and analysis of joining processes
  • Automation/digitisation of joining processes
  • Measurement technology recording of joining processes
  • Construction of joining tools
  • Design and calculation of joint connections
  • Material behaviour/Welding metallurgy
  • Laboratory evaluation of joining results
Our spectrum ranges from basic research to application-oriented research and bilateral industrial research projects.
