Technical Equipment

Besides the human being the technical equipment is a most important factor for scientific copacity of a institute. Excellent research in different fields of interest always demands for an equipment at the current state of the art. Therefor the Institute of Manufacturing Technology has continously enriched its spatial and apparative equipment from a rather scarce start. Most of the necessary investments were financed through third-party funding.
