Research Focus:

“Complex technical and social requirement profiles can only be solved with innovative material systems and technologies. Success depends on the successful networking of various specialist areas for holistic material concepts and process chains." (Nestler 2012, Habil.) The employees of the Endowed Chair combine the fields of textile technology, textile machine construction, mechanical engineering and material development.

The focus of the research activities is the linking of the value chains for the production of textile-reinforced plastic composites and hybrid compounds suitable for mass production. In particular, the Endowed Chair is involved in the research fields of preform technologies and semi-finished product production. Particular attention is paid to the transfer of knowledge and technology from research to industrial application together with the Chair's founders and other industrial partners.

The Chair is closely integrated into the Chair of Lightweight Structures and and Polymer Technology (SLK) and the Institute of Lightweight Structures (IST). In addition, the Endowed Chair maintains an extensive network, including with the founders, the two affiliated institutes Cetex Institut gGmgH and STFI (Saxon Textile Research Institute) and numerous other companies and research institutions.
