Ultra-Precision High Performance Cutting (UP-HPC)
The DFG Research Group "Ultra-Precision High Performance Cutting" (UP-HPC) is a collaboration between the University of Bremen and the Leibniz University Hannover. Participating research institutes are the Laboratory for Precision Machining (LFM, Professor Ekkard Brinksmeier) from Bremen, the Bremen Institute for Mechanical Engineering (bime, Professor Bernd Kuhfuß) as well as the Institute of Production Engineering and Machine Tools (IFW, Professor Berend Denkena) from Hannover.
The goal of this research group is it to reduce the disproportionally long primary and secondary processing times in ultra-precision machining via scientific means, in order to leverage the economic applicability of this technology in the manufacturing industry.
Funding period: April 2014 until June 2020
