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
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.
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.
Waldaschaff provides for the driver's cab (New Generation Cabin NCG) of the new truck platform Scania various lightweight structural parts for vehicle variants from the series production and special vehicles for fire departments, military and airports. The different cab variants are modular designed so that the number of different parts kept low and thus costs can be saved.
Applications inside the vehicle are particularly odor-sensitive, because drivers and passengers stay here in a confined closed space, often for long periods. The reduction of odor emissions is therefore for manufacturers of components for the vehicle interior a major concern. This is reflected in the "Klüberplex RA 41-151" of Klüber Bill, which is characterized by minimal odor emissions.
Benecke-Kaliko (Contitech) has developed a particularly scratch-resistant surface materials for the interior of commercial vehicles. The Family "Xpreshn"Is scratch-resistant than conventional TPO products. The surface material Xpreshn Protect makes no sacrifices in terms of texture and appearance, because not the hardness is decisive for the scratch resistance, but the extreme elasticity of the material.
Carefully matched infrared systems from Heraeus deburring, weld or molds plastic parts for the automotive manufacturing so efficient that saving a substantial amount of time and energy. Currently required the British supplier Faurecia with infrared emitters of Heraeus 1 / 3 less time (around 20 s) in the molding of dashboards per piece. Even the car manufacturer Bentley uses IR technology for the perfect fit of the headliners in his luxury car bodies.
