GMT as an innovative industrial partner for a variety of research projects.

Joint project 3D-bar straightening

Automatic system for measuring and straightening three-dimensionally bent solid round bars

Goal: An automatic measuring and straightening system for the correction of complex, spatially bent bars and tubes made of high-strength materials is to be developed. With such an automated system so far manually implemented steps in the process chain shall be replaced and the productivity of existing plants shall be increased by simultaneously improving the product quality and tolerance accuracy of the parts. Within the joint project, GMT is responsible for the technological coordination of the subprojects and the development of a material model.
