Professorship Production Systems and Processes

Profile of the Professorship

In the course of the appointment of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Martin Dix in October 2020, the professorship of Machine Tool Design and Forming Technology has been renamed in professorship Production Systems and Processes.

The Professorship is integrated into the Institute for Machine Tools and Production Processes (IWP) of Chemnitz University of Technology. Established in 1956, it has developed into an efficient and recognized research and training facility for production technology in Germany.

Our work focuses on teaching and research in the field of production technology. In the three teaching and research divisions "Machine Tools and Machining Technologies", "Process Informatics / Virtual Product Development" and "Control and Feedback Control Technology", our researchers interdisciplinarily deal with topics that can be assigned to the strategic goals of Industry 4.0 and resource efficiency in production. Areas of application are primarily mechanical engineering, the automotive and supplier industry as well as medical technology.

Our research work is embedded in the Chemnitz university profile.

In close interdisciplinary collaboration between the divisions and the Fraunhofer IWU, basic research is expanded, focused on future-oriented topics and supported with industry-related projects for automotive and mechanical engineering.

We have established the following networks in order to expand and deepen our cooperation with industrial partners::
