Students of the RWTH admired selected technical demonstrators on-site

Following a small snack, 45 students discovered selected research institutions of the Cluster of Excellence “Integrative Production Technology for High-Wage Countries” on November 24, 2014.

After they were welcomed by manager Deniz Özdemir, the young interested participants began the exciting tour. Along with the Selective Laser Melting at the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT and the Smart Automation Lab at the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering (WZL) of RWTH Aachen University, incremental sheet metal forming at the Centre for Metallic Design e.V. (zmb) and logistics demonstrator Institute for Industrial Management (FIR) at the RWTH Aachen University were for example on the varied program.

It was a unique opportunity to gain a much deeper insight into parts of the numerous cross-institutional projects of the Cluster of Excellence for the students.
