The Institute for Material Technologies and Plastics Processing (IWK Institut für Werkstofftechnik und Kunststoffverarbeitung) covers all topics dealing with design, process development and manufacture of plastic and fibre reinforced parts. The institute consists of four groups: injection molding, compounding and extrusion, fibre reinforced plastics and lightweight design as well as joining technique. Thus, a wide range of materials, technologies and processes can be covered. The composite/lightweight design group has broad knowledge in the field of composite processes (autoclave, out-of-autoclave, infusion, injection, press-processes) and multimaterial design. IWK is involved in all stages of product design, starting at material development and product concepts, simulation (structural and processes) and implementation of manufacturing processes.
