Tomorrow's production processes will be connected, smart and resource-efficient. The scientists in the key research area Production Engineering are working to ensure this.

At the new Mechanical Engineering Campus at Leibniz University Hannover in Garbsen, the Centre for Production Technology (PZH) pools the expertise of seven institutes and approximately 260 scientists – with backgrounds primarily in engineering and the natural sciences. Here, the researchers study and optimise the entire production process with regard to future-oriented aspects such as materials, micro-production, manufacturing and forming technology, assembly and automation technology, factory planning and logistics. Research areas in the institutes include computer-aided manufacturing and Industry 4.0, resource efficiency, medical engineering and aerospace engineering.

TEWISS GmbH provides customised engineering services directly on site.

Due to its outstanding research achievements in numerous joint projects, as well as its excellent infrastructure, PZH is one of the most prominent research centres, nationally and internationally, in the field of production engineering.
