The magazine for production research from Hanover
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.
IW | How can hip and knee implants be removed if they become loose or an infection occurs– without damaging the surrounding bone? This question is being investigated by the Institute of Materials Science (IW) as part of the collaborative research center “SIIRI”. In search of possible solutions, a process for inductive heating of metallic implants is being simulated and tested.
IFW | The International Academy for Production Engineering (CIRP) has elected Dr.-Ing. Benjamin Bergmann, Head of Manufacturing Processes at IFW, as one of 150 Associate Members worldwide, thus honoring Bergmann’s scientific achievements.
IFW | The rapid provision of patient-specific dental crowns is a major challenge. In order to increase throughput times and process quality in the manufacture of dental prostheses, IFW is researching an industry-oriented solution for process planning with MACK Dentaltechnik GmbH.
IFA | Artificial intelligence (AI) will improve the forecasting of material demands and thus support material planning for the maintenance of engines. The Institute of Production Systems and Logistics (IFA) and MTU Maintenance Hannover GmbH are collaborating on this field of research.
IFUM | Less wear and lower raw material requirements in tool manufacturing make sense ecologically as well as economically. For this purpose, tool materials can be substituted with metal matrix composites (MMCs).
ITA | For rubber extrusion, ITA is developing an artificial intelligence (AI)-based process control system that responds to batch-dependent variations. The goal is to reduce scrap and sustainably increase process stability.
LZH | IPH | From deposition welding to 3D printing on the moon: The LZH presents laser system technology– even for extraordinary challenges. The IPH will demonstrate plastics recycling in additive manufacturing using a 3D printer and the different intermediate steps for recycling.
