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
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.
With a novel seal for housing of traction batteries carries Freudenberg Sealing Technologies To make electric vehicles even more economical in smaller numbers. The patented "Profile-to-Gasket" concept P2G has been developed especially for quantities of up to 5000 batteries per year. It supplements the existing seals, which are mainly designed for large-scale production.
Worldwide pursue automakers a great goal: to always produce cleaner vehicles with more fuel-efficient. Against this background, the demand for gasoline direct injection systems, the CO to2reduce emissions drastically. The solid-state joints required for this purpose is Precision Micro here.
Tenneco will supply the exhaust aftertreatment technologies for the new family of engines NRM of Daimler, which are incorporated into the platforms E-Class, C-Class and S-Class worldwide. According to the motorists are fuel consumption and CO2reduced emissions in this four-cylinder diesel engine to 13%, the entire exhaust aftertreatment technology is tightly coupled directly to the motor to allow more fuel savings.
The magnetic sensor of MS-Schramberg comes especially in the automotive industry in various applications. Here magnetic field sensors provide the proper functioning safely for example airbags, motor control and antilock braking systems. In the field of steering angle sensor also the company presents measuring gears with integrated magnet for a play-free transmission.
GKN has implemented a completely new approach to the hub connection in the vehicle downsizing. The so-called "Face Spline" design connects the hub to the fixed joint of the side shaft fit via a toothing on the end face of the joint. Since the torque is frontally initiated through the joint into the hub, one speaks of the Face Spline design.
