Laboratory Production Engineering (LFT)

The Production Engineering Laboratory offers our students the opportunity to learn about conventional and additive manufacturing methods and to use them for actual tasks. In addition, a new teaching concept for the analysis and optimisation of a process chain is currently being tested in this laboratory in collaboration with Heilbronn University of Applied Sciences.
The laboratory also supports other project work.

Our video presents one project by way of example and follows students from the lectures in which they learn the theoretical foundations to manufacturing the parts themselves in the laboratory through to assembling and finishing the product.
