Eleven professors from Paderborn University and their teams from the disciplines of mechanical engineering, chemistry and physics pool their expertise in the ILH.
The ILH team maintains a lively exchange at the level of the scientific staff.
The Bremser group focuses on synthesising polymers, particles and hybrid systems that can be used for coatings as well as for various materials.
The Division of Data Management in Mechanical Engineering (DMB) conducts research in the fields of additive manufacturing, data organisation and data analytics.
Research and development at Kunststofftechnik Paderborn revolves around polymers as innovative materials.
The focus of the institute is on joining technology, both for pure material combinations and especially for hybrid joints, as well as materials technology.
The Chair of Engineering Mechanics focuses on experiments, modelling and numerical methods.
Today, forming technology is often the key to the efficient and resource-saving production of innovative, novel products with high utility value.
The main focus of the Department of Materials Science (LWK) is to investigate the relationships between manufacturing processes, the microstructure of the components produced by these processes and the technical properties derived from them.
The Chair researches innovative solutions for automotive lightweight design with a focus on ultra-high-strength metallic materials, fibre-reinforced materials and hybrid materials.
Methods for the production of nanostructured solid surfaces are investigated at the Chair of Nanostructuring, Nanoanalytics and Photonic Materials.
The Chair of Technical and Macromolecular Chemistry focuses its research on molecular adhesion, interfacial chemistry, stability of polymer/oxide/metal interfaces and self-healing processes.
