Optimize and speed up processes, increase productivity, minimize disturbance factors, develop innovations – these are some of the goals pursued by scientific research. The research projects presented in this newsletter also deal with such challenges.
The LZH has developed a mobile device to speed up rescue operations in public transport. At IFUM as well as at IFW and ITV, researchers want to minimize disturbance factors. The system developed at IFUM minimizes transfer vibrations in multi-stage presses and thus increases the productivity of forming machines. IFW in cooperation with ITV does research on the friction-reducing effect of micro dimples used in heavy-duty engines. At IW, researchers work on an innovative process combination that enables substrate bonding of thermally sprayed coatings.
Another highlight mentioned in this newsletter: the success for the Collaborative Research Centre “Tailored Forming” of Leibniz Universität – additional funding of around ten million euros for another period of four years provided by the German Research Foundation. Event note: LZH at IdeenExpo (Hanover, 15 to 23 June) and at LASER fair (Munich, 24 to 27 June).
