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 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.
