LZH | On 1 and 2 December 2021, the next Workshop on Laser Processing of Glass Materials will take place. The Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) and the Bayerische Laserzentrum GmbH (blz) will bring together experts from research and industry for an intensive exchange. The event language is German.
IFW | In the IIP-Ecosphere project, an autonomous test cell is being developed that will be integrated into a real production system. Supplemented by an intelligent production control system, the project is expected to significantly increase the performance of the entire production system.
IPH | IFA | Planning a factory is a major challenge, especially for small and medium-sized manufacturing companies that have little experience. We explain how factory planning projects work and which digital tools simplify and accelerate planning.
LZH | A system that rivals conventional processes in terms of speed without any tool wear brings the laser drilling of composite materials a big step closer to application in aircraft construction.
match | Adhesive bonding is a joining technology of the future. Bonding in an oxygen-free atmosphere offers completely new possibilities: Adhesive bonds of metals become more durable without an intervening oxide layer, and the curing of adhesives can be specifically influenced.
IPH | How do we manage to leave the smallest possible ecological footprint with our work? IPH employees have been asking themselves this question for several years. The institute has declared sustainability to be a corporate goal, has already implemented a number of measures and is planning further ones.
IKK | Robin Bähre is one of 60 scholarship holders of the German Federal Environmental Foundation (DBU). The topic of his thesis, which he is writing at IKK – Institute of Plastics and Circular Economy, is “Degradation behavior of tire abrasion in aquatic ecosystems”.
IMPT | The Institute of Micro Production Technology (IMPT) is working on a process sequence for the deposition and structuring of an aluminum nitride thin-film, which can be used in both sensor and actuator systems due to its piezoelectric properties.
