Research Group CEA
The CEA group is an interdisciplinary research group of the Faculty of Engineering at the University of Applied Sciences Wismar. Research is conducted on computational engineering and mechatronics - the main research area of the university.
CIM Technology Center Wismar e. V.
The CIM-Technologie-Zentrum Wismar e. V. (CIM e. V.) was founded in 1993 as a non-profit institution for the promotion of science and education and is closely associated with Wismar University of Applied Sciences. Since then, innovation and further education for small and medium-sized enterprises have been supported in various ways across mechanical engineering, metals, steel and plant construction as well as control and automation technology. The headquarters at the Alter Holzhafen in Wismar has modern equipped offices, laboratory and workshop areas where scientists work on the main research areas of special machine and tool construction, micromachining and compound construction. Services include superplastic forming, research work on product and process innovation, R&D transfer between research institutions and companies, studies and concept development for innovation processes in companies, development and implementation of projects for the application of new manufacturing technologies, innovation and network management, seminars, symposia, workshops and further training activities.
Institute for Surface and Thin Film Technology
At the Institute for Surface and Thin Film Technology (IfOD) of the Wismar University of Applied Sciences, demanding applied research has been conducted in cooperation with industrial partners since the year 2000. As an industry-oriented institute of the Wismar University of Applied Sciences, it combines competences in coating production, application and characterization as well as surface analysis, establishings a direct link between teaching and practice.
The IfOD is dedicated to application-oriented research. The focus is on the development and characterization of new, functional materials or material composites, surfaces, materials and processes. In doing so, the IfOD manages research projects from the development and characterization of process engineering to materials science analysis and prototype development.
Large-format objects in construction and design
The aim of a project in the design department of Wismar University of Applied Sciences is to advance digitalization in construction, architecture and design, and so increase productivity using new resource-saving manufacturing technologies - the 3D printing process. One focus is on shaping cement materials without the obligatory formwork by means of an additive manufacturing technology in a digital process chain, individually and according to requirements, opening up new design possibilities.
Development of a process-integrated parameter analysis system for additive manufacturing systems based on artificial intelligence
The aim of a joint research project at the Chair of Microfluidics at the University of Rostock is to develop a process-integrated parameter analysis system for additive manufacturing systems, based on artificial intelligence. To this end, hardware and software components are being developed which, on the one hand, support and improve quality assurance in the additive manufacturing process and, on the other, optimize the process itself. On the hardware side, a data analysis system is being developed that can be integrated into an additive manufacturing system. The data analysis system detects, analyzes and monitors relevant process parameters and can use artificial intelligence (AI) algorithms to detect unfavorable process behavior during the 3D printing process at an early stage and initiate optimization strategies. The software component is based on cryptographic blockchain technology. It defines the interfaces for visualizing the analyzed process parameters and documents specific parameters digitally, decentrally and transparently. This is intended to enable certified additive component manufacturing.
