The Leibniz Institute for Materials Science IWT in Bremen

The AWT has got its own research insitute: Leibniz Institute for Materials Engineering IWT. It is located at the heart of the university’s campus in Bremen. The task the technicians and researchers of the institute are working on is to develop future technology in metal working to industrial maturity. In close networking with the university’s department of Production Engineering they are committed to support partners from industry and research.

Unique in Germany, the IWT unites the three specialist disciplines Materials Science, Process and Chemical  Engineering, as well as Manufacturing Technologies. Extensive know how, exclusive equipment and not least a very lively pioneering spirit are the strengths of the Institute. By the cooperation with the Bremen Institute of Material Testing (MPA Bremen) and the Laboratory of Precision Machining (LFM Bremen) IWT- researchers are able to solve technological problems without time-consuming coordination processes and at an interdisciplinary level.

Research at the cutting edge

Inspired by the concept of interdisciplinary research the IWT breaks through traditional confines and faces the requirements of modern production.

Research activities e. g. in the fields of distortion control, nano technology, metal working fluids, and spray forming are showing on which cooperation the Institute banks: In application-oriented projects they solve industrial problems at the cutting edge, in fields of basic research they set trends and promote shifts in paradigm.
