The magazine for production research from Hanover
match | Liubov Marchuk from the National Technical University of Ukraine in Kyiv is completing a three-month research stay at the Institute of Assembly Technology (match) to gain insights into the research field of soft robotics.
ITA | Small cosmic bodies such as comets and asteroids are being researched in the Einstein-Elevator by simulating different gravitational conditions. The joint project is being carried out by scientists from Braunschweig and Hannover.
ITA | Can rubber be 3D printed? How far away are we from self-printed action figures or bouncy balls? Sebastian Leineweber received the Best Paper Award from the journal RCT at the International Elastomer Conference (IEC) for answering these and other questions.
IFA | How can intelligent agents be used in production control? What potential does artificial intelligence (AI) offer in the production process? This is what the Institute of Production Systems and Logistics (IFA) is researching in the Collaborative Research Center “Tailored Forming” (SFB 1153).
match | Cryopreservation is the storage of biological material at temperatures below -130°C. The Institute of Assembly Technology (match) is developing a parallel robot with solid-state joints that can automatically handle samples at these low temperatures.
IMPT | The Institute of Micro Production Technology (IMPT) is testing a novel process for the batch production of micro-millers made of monocrystalline silicon carbide. Simultaneous production of a large number of components can significantly reduce the unit price.
IFW | What impact will the changes in the aerospace industry have on tomorrow’s manufacturing technology? Latest trends and developments will be presented and discussed at the Machining Innovations Conference for Aerospace Industry (MIC) on November 29 and 30, 2023.
LZH | Using expensive materials on high-performance components only where they are really needed: Scientists at the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) are researching methods that make this possible as part of the Collaborative Research Center 1153 “Tailored Forming”.
ITA | How can polymer optical waveguides be manufactured on 3D circuit carriers? This is what physicist Laura Fütterer at the Institute of Transport and Automation Technology (ITA) is researching. She received the Best Paper Award at the International MID Congress.
