Innovation Center Prof. Dr.-Ing. Jürgen Weber

Fluid-Mechatronic Systems Engineering

The Fluid-Mechatronic Systems Technology Innovation Center does not only research and develop in the field of hydraulic and pneumatic drives, control systems and regulation. Rather, due to the increasingly pronounced networking of fluid, mechanical, electrical and information technology components, we have expanded the spectrum to the field of fluid mechatronics.
Existing key topics such as hydraulic and pneumatic control engineering in stationary and mobile applications, valve actuators and solenoids, computational fluid dynamics (CFD) on pumps and valves, and methods of virtual product development are being continuously advanced and deepened. Topics such as new hybrid drive structures, the safety of fluid-mechatronic functions and aspects of software development are expanding the work done to date.
