  • Training and Education

Training courses offer your employees the opportunity to expand their expertise and methodological knowledge, to learn new software or to acquire in-depth skills in the application of extensive software environments. The employees of the Institute of Mechanism Theory, Machine Dynamics and Robotics are active in university teaching and are experienced in imparting knowledge. We also offer training courses tailored to your challenges, whereby the theory taught can be used directly on your examples. In contrast to general training courses, this allows you to learn more about the content relevant to you. It is also possible to conduct the training courses at your premises or at ours.


Motion technology and mechanism theory

SchulungGetriebesynthese

A mechanism is a mechanical device for the transmission of movements. The IGMR focuses on unevenly transmitted mechanisms, which can be used to generate a certain transmission behavior as well as to guide mechanism links. Within the framework of further training by the staff of the IGMR, we would be pleased to impart the theoretical basics and application knowledge - also related to your challenges - on the following topics:

  • Introduction to mechanism theory
  • Structural- and mass synthesis of mechanisms
  • Kinematic analysis of mechanisms
  • Design of (digital) cam discs
  • Motion design
  • Analysis of dynamics and kinetostatics

 


Machine dynamics and vibration technology

Dynamics and possible vibrations play a particularly important role in high-speed machines. As a rule, vibrations and increased vibrations are undesirable movements that must be avoided in order to increase productivity and quality. Within the framework of further training by the staff of the IGMR, we would be pleased to impart the theoretical basics and application knowledge - also related to your challenges - on the following topics:

  • Modeling of multi-body systems
  • Dynamic backup systems
  • Vibration analysis
  • Measures to minimize vibration
  • Rotor dynamics
  • Balancing technique

 


Robotics and Mechatronics

rob

Robots and handling units are used in almost all industrial sectors. These terms cover most different movement devices: Classical serial 6-axis induction robots, Scara robots, parallel robots, mobile units and all special solutions with several degrees of freedom. Within the framework of further training by the staff of the IGMR, we would be pleased to impart the theoretical basics and application knowledge - also related to your challenges - on the following topics:

  • Introduction to Robotics
  • Kinematics of handling systems
  • Usage of the Hartenberg-Denavit notation
  • Dynamics of handling devices
  • Parallel robots
  • Mobile Manipulators
  • Synthesis and design of robot systems
  • Parameter identification
  • Modularity and reconfiguration

 


Software

In mechanical engineering, powerful software tools for modeling, design and simulation are indispensable. However, the range of functions of the programs is often so large that learning new tools is tedious and time-consuming. Even if a program is already well mastered, there are usually additional functions and tool collections that must be relearned.

The IGMR has been teaching the use of certain software tools in courses for many years. The IGMR staff are also trained in knowledge transfer and can give you an introduction to new software functions, especially in connection with the necessary background knowledge.

We are happy to support you in learning and using the following programs in the context of mechanism theory, machine dynamics and robotics:

  • ADAMS
  • MATLAB & Simulink
  • CAD-Systems
  • Geometry programs
  • Robot Operating System (ROS)
  • Special software for mechanism theory
