The idea of the "Hyperloops" comes from Elon Musk, who not only realized Paypal, but also founded well-known companies like Tesla or SpaceX. Now the dream goes from fast traveling to the next round: People in a capsule with sound velocity (1200 km / h) are to reach their goal in a vacuum tube...Continue reading
Despite the positive sales growth within the circuit board sector, it is to be assumed that the consolidation has not yet been completed. PCB manufacturers have to face the enormous price pressure of Asian manufacturers, rising production costs in Europe and the tense global competition environment. Since the beginning of the year, Würth Elektronik and Fela have therefore united a development cooperation with the...Continue reading
Thin section bearings from Rodriguez Achieve a comparable performance and service life as normal rolling bearings despite miniaturization. In this way, the gear unit can be stored in the knee joint of an exoskeleton without complicated and space-saving auxiliary constructions. They are also used in a bicycle with an automatic transmission....Continue reading
Batteries, the cathode consists of a mixture of nickel, manganese, cobalt and lithium, are currently considered the most efficient. But they have a limited lifespan. From the first cycle they lose up to 10% of their capacity. Why is that and what can be done against the subsequent gradual loss of capacity,...
Adler eyes are extremely sharp and can see both forward and sideways good - qualities that one would like to have also the autonomous driving. Physicists at the University of Stuttgart have now produced in 3D pressure sensors that track the eagle eye in a small space and with the latest 3D printing technology realized by Nanoscribe.
Over the past decade, the professor has Lightweight Structures and Plastics Processing (SLK) at Chemnitz University developed into one of the leading research institutions in the field of lightweight construction. To meet the increasing testing needs in new fields of application for composites materials, the professor SLK has for an advanced inspection system Zwick Roell...Continue reading

Li-Fi technology, ie the use of light to exchange huge amounts of data, established wired or radio-based wireless transmission techniques could soon supplement in highly automated production environments or even replace. Of developers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Photonic Microsystems IPMS in...Continue reading
First Sensor Has received the nomination for a US Tier 1 supplier to produce high-pressure sensors to support electrohydraulic steering systems. Electrohydraulic steering systems are a precursor of autonomous driving. In these so-called steer-by-wire systems, the steering command is transmitted purely electrically without a mechanical connection between the steering wheel and wheels.
In the development of its concept car, the Aria Group In terms of model building on the "Raku-Tool" Close Contour Paste CP-6070 / 6072 by Rampf, The supplier of design, engineering and manufacturing solutions meets all expectations - including the legendary Ed Taylor - former designer at General Motors and many as Fast Eddy.
The hydraulic energy recovery with hydraulic accumulators Supports the demands for ever more energy-efficient and more fuel-efficient solutions. The developers at Freudenberg Sealing Technologies have succeeded in significantly reducing the weight of high-pressure and low-pressure piston accumulators thanks to a special design design and a new joining technology.
The automotive industry is working intensively on solutions for autonomous driving and auto-to-car communications. At the same time, the communications industry is characterized by ever higher data rates on the way to 5G and broadband networks. AT + S Has developed circuit boards that offer the required performance in the frequency range up to 80 GHz.
Henkel Adhesive Technologies offers a diversified range of "Bonderite" solutions for OEMs and suppliers, who are striving to achieve weight savings and improve the sustainability of their processes with new alloys and multi-metal materials.
A basic prerequisite for comfortable and safe driving is, among other things, that the wheels of a vehicle are mounted perfectly. With the wheel measuring machine R2010, IEF-Werner has a fully automatic solution in the range, allowing manufacturers to check the running of their motorcycles and wheels, improve and document the quality.
