Objectives of the student project "highly innovative machine tool"(wzmi) are the development and design as well as the construction of a machine tool. This will be exhibited as a demonstrator at trade shows and events. With the machine, the research projects of the machine tools team and its partners will be appealingly demonstrated to the audience.
The concept of the machine tool includes features that reflect the current research topics in the field of production technology. Thus, for example, the friction welding should also be implemented with the milling spindle with automatic tool change. All the exciting machining is designed for dry operation. Furthermore, the team strives to implement the control system with an open bus system, because linear drives from different manufacturers are used. The versatility is another key requirement.
