Vision

The Division of Cutting at the Professorship for Machine Tools and Forming Technology Regards Itself as:

  • Expert for the development, optimisation and design of cutting processes and process chains
  • Educational institution for cutting technologies at the TU Chemnitz
  • Professional partner in research and training for machining

Main Areas of Academic Research

  • High Performance Cutting - Hybrid technologies like laser assisted machining and high pressure cooling
  • Water Jet Cutting - Precision 3D-machining of complex and fragile parts and also structuring of ceramics
  • Numerical Simulation of Cutting Processes - Modelling and optimisation by FEM
  • Lubricant-Free Machining - From dry processes to cryogenic cooling for cutting operations with defined and undefined cutting edges
  • Rapid Prototyping - Functional prototypes from ABS materials to full colour models
  • Process Reliability - Monitoring and control for a hundred percent quality assurance
