IWF, TU Berlin

The Machine Tools and Manufacturing Engineering department is concerned with the development and optimization of concepts, assemblies and components on machine tools, as well as the analysis and provision of innovative manufacturing processes and manufacturing process chains.

“New challenges are constantly arising from the increasing demands of the state of the art in research and the market, and these are the focus of our research activities. To this end, we create fundamental knowledge that is applied in joint projects in line with requirements. Our engineers and scientists use this wealth of experience to implement the wishes and interests of our industrial cooperation partners quickly and in a quality-conscious manner.”


“For over 100 years, we have been researching and developing on the cutting edge.” The Institute Machine Tools and Specialized Operations is located at the Technical University in Berlin.

Worth knowing

Manufacturing processes offer enormous potential for improvement in terms of their energy and resource efficiency. Therefore, the institute pursues in the field of manufacturing technology the targeted configuration of effective mechanisms of manufacturing processes in order to solve challenging machining tasks or to increase the performance of manufacturing technologies.
