IWU – Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology
The Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology – IWU advances research and development in the field of production technology for the automotive and mechanical engineering sectors. A main focus of the institute’s work includes the development of intelligent production systems for the manufacturing of car bodies and powertrain components, as well as the optimization of the related forming, cutting, and joining manufacturing processes. We create innovative solutions for continuous process chains, from the components, to assembly units, all the way up to complex machine systems and completely new kinematics. Lightweight structures and the use of new materials are also playing an more and more important role.
