Grinding Technology

The division ”Grinding Technology“ focuses precision machining such as grinding, finishing, and abrasive blasting. The work covers research and development and, furthermore, consulting and service. The competences include face-, profile- and shape grinding as well as cylindrical grinding and tool grinding processes, also including preparation processes of cutting tools. The introduction of grinding processes for new materials and process combinations are constant challenges. Regarding this, the division “Grinding Technology” offers high-level machinery, equipment and competence to succeed in these tasks. Current research addresses the grinding of composite materials and unreinforced thermoplastics.

State-of-the-art measurement equipment is used to analyse and to optimise the grinding processes. This comprises topography analysis as well as the analysis of thermomechanical load. Changes of the surface layer can be detected by metallographic methods. The development of simulations based on commercial FEA tools and our own geometric-kinematical tools can provide further information about the processes and the results to expect from geometrically complex grinding processes. The work of the division “Grinding Technology” takes place in close cooperation with the other divisions of the ISF and our partners in industry and research.

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”.
