Grinding Seminar

Invitation to the 9th Dortmund Grinding Seminar

Machining with geometrically undefined cutting edges usually represents the last machining step in the process chain for workpieces with highest requirements for dimensional accuracy and surface quality. Constantly increasing demands on component quality and the use of new types of materials open up new fields of research and also lead to process strategies in which grinding processes are not only used as final processes. In particular, fine and ultra-fine machining processes as well as new technologies such as additive manufacturing are the focus of many new developments in grinding technology. The exchange and transfer of knowledge and experience between industry and research can make a major contribution to the success of technological progress.

With the Dortmund Grinding Seminar on September 29 and 30, 2021, the Institute of Machining Technology would like to offer the opportunity to bridge the gap between practice-oriented developments and scientific approaches. Exciting lectures with newest aspects from industry and research offer the opportunity to expand expertise, develop networks and gain insights into the cooperative work between industry and research. The two-day event is divided into different lecture blocks. A tour of the experimental halls and an evening event complete the conference and contribute to constructive discussions and the opportunity to foster contacts.

I am looking forward to welcoming you at the 9th. Dortmund Grinding Seminar "Current tchnologies at ISF" in Dortmund.

Stay healthy!

Location & approach

From A1

Take exit Kreuz Dortmund/Unna to merge onto A44 toward Dortmund, which changes into the B1. Exit Dortmund-Dorstfeld toward Universität (onward see map).

From A 45

Exit Dortmund-Eichlinghofen toward Universität (onward see map).

Alternatively, you can calculate the route here: Google Maps.


Arrival by Deutsche Bahn to Dortmund or Bochum central station.

From Dortmund central station, take the S1 city train in the direction of Düsseldorf to the "Dortmund Universität" station (7 minutes journey time).

From Bochum central station, take the S1 city train in the direction of Dortmund to the "Dortmund Universität" station (14 minutes journey time).

The city train runs regularly every 20 minutes in both directions.  From the city train station, take the Skytrain (S-Universität stop) to the Campus Süd stop (1 stop, runs every 10 minutes).

From Dort­mund Airport

By taxi to TU Dortmund University, Campus South (approx. 20 min and 30 €, see  Map)

From Düsseldorf Airport

Take the city train S1 in the direction of Dortmund to the "Dortmund-Universität" station (approx. 60 min). From here, take the Skytrain in the direction of Campus South or Eichlinghofen (runs every 10 minutes and takes approx. 3 min.).


The H-Bahn is one of the hallmarks of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity. There are two stations on North Campus. One (“Dort­mund Uni­ver­si­tät S”) is directly located at the suburban train stop, which connects the uni­ver­si­ty directly with the city of Dort­mund and the rest of the Ruhr Area. Also from this station, there are connections to the “Technologiepark” and (via South Campus) Eichlinghofen. The other station is located at the dining hall at North Campus and offers a direct connection to South Campus every five minutes.


The facilities of TU Dort­mund Uni­ver­sity are spread over two campuses, the larger Campus North and the smaller Campus South. Additionally, some areas of the uni­ver­si­ty are located in the adjacent “Technologiepark”.
