|In close cooperation with the Department of Engineering and Computer Science of Prof. Dr.-Ing. Ralf Winkelmann of the BTU – Brandenburg University of Technology, Cottbus-Senftenberg, KROLLMANN explores new solutions and procedures for “compound forging” and develops forming technologies for difficult-to-form materials in cooperation with scientific institutes.
|Compound Forging: The objective of the research project is to develop a joining machine with the technological help of a KROLLMANN rotary swaging machine that attempts to mechanically interconnect two materials which cannot be bonded by conventional joining methods.
|Forming for difficult-to-form materials: The objective in this innovative research project is to develop a production-ready system with the technological support of a KROLLMANN rotary swaging machine that can transform difficult-to-form materials from the cast structure into a form and a joining. Only then will later forming processes, such as wire drawing, be possible.
