The future of production technology
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.
IFW | How can machine data from small and medium-sized enterprises (SMEs) be used automatically for integrated maintenance and production planning with the help of the Industry 4.0 asset administration shell? IFW is addressing this question in the joint project BaSys4iPPS.
match | Soft robots for marine research: match and GEOMAR in Kiel are launching a new project to develop a system that will be used in combination with a diving robot to simplify the collection of rock and sediment samples in the deep sea.
LZH | Dental implants with an innovative lattice structure: The scientists at the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. are working on this as part of a DFG research group. The goal: The additively manufactured implants made of titanium should be particularly durable and functional.
IMPT | Miniaturized ion getter pumps for use in compact and transportable quantum measurement technology are currently being developed by scientists at the Institute of Micro Production Technology (IMPT) of Leibniz University Hannover in cooperation with LPKF.
IFUM | Alternative lubricant concepts play a special role in times of raw material scarcity. Water-based lubricants offer many advantages in terms of disposal, operation and savings. Their application limits are being investigated at the Institute of Forming Technology and Machines (IFUM).
IW | A new class of materials based on refractory metals shines with application temperatures at which conventionally used high-temperature materials fail. The so-called niobium-MASC alloys are being researched at the Institut für Werkstoffkunde (IW, Materials Science) of Leibniz University Hannover.
