The future of production technology
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.
IFW | In the IIP-Ecosphere project, an autonomous test cell is being developed that will be integrated into a real production system. Supplemented by an intelligent production control system, the project is expected to significantly increase the performance of the entire production system.
LZH | A system that rivals conventional processes in terms of speed without any tool wear brings the laser drilling of composite materials a big step closer to application in aircraft construction.
match | Adhesive bonding is a joining technology of the future. Bonding in an oxygen-free atmosphere offers completely new possibilities: Adhesive bonds of metals become more durable without an intervening oxide layer, and the curing of adhesives can be specifically influenced.
IMPT | The Institute of Micro Production Technology (IMPT) is working on a process sequence for the deposition and structuring of an aluminum nitride thin-film, which can be used in both sensor and actuator systems due to its piezoelectric properties.
IW | A new class of materials impresses with its absence of main elements and limitless combination possibilities. The so-called high entropy alloys are being researched, among others, at the Institute of Materials Science (IW) of Leibniz University Hannover.
IFUM | Nitriding protects tool surfaces from wear, but at the same time makes them susceptible to cracking and oxidation. Scientists at IFUM, IST and ZfM have investigated which steel exhibits the best properties after nitriding.
ITA/IPH | How to compensate the restricted vision in forklifts with the help of strategically placed cameras and augmented reality glasses? Scientists from ITA and IPH are jointly tackling this question.
