IPH | Coordinate, communicate and design: These are the three main tasks of the new group leader for innovative manufacturing processes Dipl.-Ing. Jens Kruse. Such a position exists at IPH for the first time.
match | The next generation of transport robots works as a team. Mobile robots that communicate with each other and coordinate their movements can jointly perform complex tasks and transport large components, for example.
IFA | At first glance, factories and hospitals have little in common. But factory planning can help prepare hospital systems for current and future challenges. Promising solutions are offered by flow orientation and transformability.
IFUM | Noise is a major problem in production plants, and previous measures to reduce noise are complex and expensive. IFUM is researching the machine acoustics of particularly noisy stamping presses using an acoustic camera and simulation.
IW | How do resorbable implant materials behave inside the human body? To investigate this question, the Institute of Materials Science (IW) has developed a testing station: There, fatigue tests can be carried out that also take into account the effects of corrosion.
IPH | What factors influence the running behavior of idlers? How do they behave in heat and cold; how resistant are they to water and dust? All this can be investigated with the new test rigs at IPH. Even motor-driven idlers are tested there.
ITA | In electromagnetically stressed environments, electronic data transmission is often only possible to a limited extent. ITA is therefore working with industrial companies to research cost-effective optical data transmission in printed circuit board systems.
IPH | A new 3D printer in the research area for Additive Plastics Recycling at IPH can process plastic granulate. This allows components to be printed directly from recycled and shredded plastic or from injection molding material without first having to produce filament.
LZH | With the Dialog-on-the-Road, Niedersachsen ADDITIV is bringing the information event for 3D printing newcomers to various regions in Lower Saxony. On 14 October 2021, interested companies can inform themselves about the technology in Quakenbrück.
