Manufacture of XXL products
Our interdisciplinary focus lies on today?s manufacturing of so called XXL products. In this field of research we set trends and strive to achieve excellence. The term XXL does not only refer to over-sized and heavy building components, such as rotor blades for wind turbines and motor elements for commercial and special purpose vehicles. Also complex products, e.g. aero-engines that are challenging in planning and production due to the high number of single components, can be assigned to this group.
The IPH aims at optimizing and achieving excellence in the manufacturing of XXL products and further to solidify and expand the leading market position of German companies in the field of XXL products.
Besides providing research & development and consulting, we focus on the qualification of experts and executive managers. As a link between science and industry, we provide insights into the latest knowledge of production engineering - and beyond. We aim at offering practical training based on current technical and scientific standards. In workshops and seminars, e.g. in production management, RFID or optimization of set-up time, we regularly pass on our know-how to our clients. Thereby we wish to strengthen the competitive capability of companies.
The IPH has 69 employees, including 30 engineers/scientific staff.
