Mechanical Engineering

In the area of mechanical engineering, the ISW is primarily concerned with the topics machine dynamics, various feed drive concepts, single machine components and new machine kinematics. Experimental investigations of machines and facilities are carried out and all sorts of feed drives like ball screws, rack and pinion, belt and linear direct drives are analyzed metrologically. In addition, new ways of layout and commissioning are developed. In order to meet new technological requirements, novel machine kinematics are developed, designed, constructed and put into operation.
