Materials Technology

The field of materials technology (TW) is comprised of four specialist groups: mechanical testing, microstructure analysis, steel metallurgy and heat-treatment. Besides the development of ferrous alloys, the division‘s research activities are particularly focused on the controlled heat-treatment of metallic materials, such as hardened and tempered steels, using water-air spray cooling. The mechanical testing team determines the dynamic and quasi-static material parameters of metallic materials within the scope of current research projects and intensively collaborates with industrial companies as a service provider for commission testing.
