The future of production technology

IFA | How can intelligent agents be used in production control? What potential does artificial intelligence (AI) offer in the production process? This is what the Institute of Production Systems and Logistics (IFA) is researching in the Collaborative Research Center “Tailored Forming” (SFB 1153).
IMPT | The Institute of Micro Production Technology (IMPT) is testing a novel process for the batch production of micro-millers made of monocrystalline silicon carbide. Simultaneous production of a large number of components can significantly reduce the unit price.
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.
