Institute of Design and Production in Precision Engineering – IKFF

Prof. Dr.-Ing. Bernd Gundelsweiler

The  Institute of Design and Production in Precision Engineering has a long experience in precision engineering.

The principal Areas of Work are:

+-
  • Computer aided design of high energy magnetic circuits for permanent magnetically energized linear motor systems.
  • Simulation and optimization of the magnetic circuits with FE-methods.
  • Computer aided dimensioning, optimization and design of electromagnetical direct drive linear systems in precision engineering.
  • Development and design of miniature direct drive systems with integrated measuring systems using the sensoric properties of the system.
  • Investigation and development of ultrasonic linear drives based on travelling waves.
  • Simulation and optimization of the travelling wave using FE-methods.
  • Production of precision parts and structures.
  • Dynamic tempering of molds with induction heating.
  • Production of polymer bonded magnets.
  • Determination of forces appearing when opening the mold.
  • Optimization of parts to save material by applying FE-methods.
  • Tansfer and verification of new and already known reliability methods on precision drives.
  • Experiments including endurance tests of precision drives.
  • Development of new approaches to determine the system reliability in early design phases.
  • Precalculating of the system reliability of mixed systems in early design phases.
