Guided Tours at Industrial Companies - closed -
The participants of the ECCM17 will have the opportunity to take a look behind the scenes. This means that they have the chance to visit some industrial companies and institutes in and around Munich. The tours will be planned and offered by the ECCM17 organizing team/committee. All guided tours will be held in English.
Please have a look at our website to book your tour. -> Personal Area
Please note that the number of participants is limited and please make sure that you do not book several tours on the same day, at the same time.
Additional transportation fees must be paid directly (only cash) on the bus (10,- Euro).
All tours start in front of the Congress Center Munich (ICM) and return to that point.
PLEASE NOTE: There are limited contingents at each tour! We have to close the registration for the tours on coming Monday!!! There's no possibility to book the tours at the ECCM17!!
The following partners can be visited:
The KraussMaffei product brand is internationally synonymous with future-oriented and cross-technology system and process solutions in injection molding machinery, reaction process machinery and automation. As a complete supplier for all industries, KraussMaffei is characterized by its individual, modular or standardized products and a wide range of customized services.
Automation W+R, Munich
We want to be a long-term partner for our customers and clearly tell you what we are about. Since we are a member of the Autision Group, you receive everything from a single source: Robotics, measuring technology and of course surface inspection.
TUM / LCC, Garching
The Institute for Carbon Composites was founded in May 2009, with a focus on carbon-fiber composite materials and their applications. The appointment of Professor Drechsler was made possible by the foundation of a Chair by the SGL Group and a TUM investment with funding from the German Excellence Initiative. The renowned scientist and his team will address fundamental research and application-oriented industry cooperation in the field of fiber-reinforced composites.
Premium Aerotec, Augsburg
Premium AEROTEC is at home in the air. The company is one of the world’s leaders in the development and manufacturing of structures and production systems for commercial and military aircraft construction. At its facilities in Augsburg, Bremen, Nordenham, Varel and Braşov (Romania), Europe’s leading aircraft supplier manufactures state-of-the-art aircraft structures for the entire Airbus Family using aluminium, titanium and carbon fibre composites (CFC). Premium AEROTEC is also making a key contribution to the development and manufacturing of the A350 XWB. Furthermore, the company supplies key components for the Boeing 787 Dreamliner, the Eurofighter and the A400M.
Fraunhofer ICT, Augsburg
The Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft carries out applied research that drives economic developments and serves the wider benefit of society, working for and with an international network of partners and customers. The Fraunhofer Institute for Chemical Technology ICT is one of the 60 institutes that currently make up the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft. Beside contractual research for industry, the Fraunhofer ICT also works with commercial enterprises in research projects co-funded by the German government and the European Union.
The research facility in Augsburg was established in 2009 as part of the Center for Lightweight Production Technology and has been an independent site of the German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) since May 2011. The research carried out in Augsburg is not tied to specific institutes and sites and focuses on the field of production technology. Augsburg thus completes the process chain for the development and production of components made of carbon-fibre reinforced composites at DLR.
TUM / ZFP, Munich
The NDT laboratory is part of the center for building materials (cbm) in München-Pasing and as an institution allocated to two faculties: Department of Civil, Geo and Environmental Engineering as well as Department of Mechanical Engineering. It deals with all methods evaluating non-destructively materials and structures. The goal is to observe what is not visible to the human eye and to monitor deteriorations of materials and structures in terms of structural health monitoring. This is certainly not only a task in material science generally and in the both disciplines, civil and mechanical engineering, in particular but also in architecture, cultural heritage, geophysics, geology and even medicine. Basics of the methods are derived from physics, electrical engineering, computer science and data processing and so is the non-destructive evaluation of materials and structures a truly interdisciplinary field. The NDT laboratory is a new institution of the TU München and exists now since April 2010 as an "Extraordinariat". It was upgraded to be a Chair in August 2011.
University of Augsburg, Chair of Experimental Physik II
Our main research is focused on fiber reinforced materials. Our field of interest includes the whole process chain from the single fibre to the final unit. Beginning with the single fibre, which is analyzed by scanning probe as well as electron microscopy and -spectroscopy, our research continues with destructive and non-destructive testing procedures like acoustic emission analysis and x-ray tomography of the fibre reinforced materials. Other research groups at the chair are dealing with corrosion, ressources, nanostructures and spectroscopy under extreme conditions.
