Here & now
Current developments and dates
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.
match | Four-legged newcomer to the Institute of Assembly Technology (match): Boston Dynamics’ agile robotic dog is a versatile mobile platform that can climb stairs, stand up after a fall, navigate rough terrain, carry objects and even open doors.
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.
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.
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.
IFW | IPH | LZH | This year, the Hannover Messe is taking place as a digital event. The Mittelstand 4.0-Kompetenzzentrum Hannover and the IPH are each present with a digital booth. Niedersachsen ADDITIV is represented at the joint stand of the state of Lower Saxony.
IPH | The goal is to build recycling loops for 3D printing: Scientists at the Institut für Integrierte Produktion Hannover (IPH) gGmbH are researching process steps for obtaining and processing recycled plastic materials.
IKK | Plastic has a bad reputation. Yet plastic can be recycled like almost no other material. Recycling and other innovative solutions for more sustainable plastic products will be the topic of the WIP Annual Forum on June 16, 2021.
