IFA | Artificial intelligence (AI) can enable predictions of delivery times and in this way improve the planning of engine maintenance. The Institute of Production Systems and Logistics (IFA) and MTU Maintenance Hannover GmbH are researching this topic.
New
ITA | Students experience the secret transmission of information using polarized light in the new augmented reality laboratory of the Optronics group at ITA. A pair of smart glasses superimposes information and instructions into the field of vision.
New
IFUM | Forging processes are subject to significant fluctuations, resulting in extremely varying tool service lives. A mobile measuring concept is being developed at IFUM to record critical process parameters and build up a deeper understanding of the process.
New
IKK | In the new laboratory for cryo-scanning electron microscopy at the IKK – Institute of Plastics and Circular Economy, samples can be imaged with high resolution. The equipment is especially designed for investigations of poorly conductive plastic-based samples.
New
match | The Institute of Assembly Technology (match) is hosting a workshop at the International Conference on Robotics and Automation (ICRA) in Philadelphia (USA) on May 27, 2022, as part of the DFG Priority Program 2100 “Soft Material Robotics”.
New
IW | How can the forming behavior of promising but limited-formability engineering materials be improved? At the Institute of Materials Science (IW), research is being conducted into the so-called electroplastic effect: current pulses are intended to facilitate the plastic deformation of magnesium alloys.
