ThZM has been established under coordination of Ilmenau University of Technology and unites joint activities of five research institutions. ThZM bundles research and entrepreneurial competence in projects to favour flexible, precise and resources-friendly technologies of mechanical engineering. Business companies benefit from the access to relevant research and development infrastructure, and academic organizations can gain valuable experience for further research works. The key aspects are:
- Process technologies in mechanical engineering
- Precision technologies
- Material engineering and coating
- Power tools and moulds
- Quality management in production
Within the framework of ThZM, available economic and scientific competences become further targeted development with the goals to generate synergetic effects and to expand a demand-oriented research infrastructure.
