Product development

Located at the University of Applied Sciences Düsseldorf, FMDauto is an interdisciplinary institute for product- and production-related R&D projects founded by a group of professors of the Departments of Electrical Engineering, Mechanical and Process Engineering,
The available laboratory infrastructure of the whole university, equipped with modern technology, as well as the usage of state-of the- art simulation and experimental techniques, create ideal conditions for successful research. Most of the R&D-projects take place in partnership with industry and other research

Optimization of agricultural machinery with regard to harvesting processes

What we offer

The Institute FMDauto offers R&D services for the optimization of agricultural machinery by using modern simulation and experimental technology.
That leads to lighter machines, higher mass flow rates at the same machine size, reduction of energy consumption and CO2 emissions.

What we are looking for

Industry, SMEs, research organisations in the area of agriculture, cutting tools, coatings and measurement technology.
