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
Watson-Marlow presents the new Peristaltic pump "Quantum"With the patented ReNu-SU-cartridge technology. The development raises the bar for single-use applications in tangential flow filtration (TFF), the virus filtration and high performance liquid chromatography (HPLC).
Biotechnology is the fastest growing segment of the life sciences and the success of biotechnological processes such as fermentation or cell cultivation is highly dependent on that optimal living conditions for the microorganisms or cell cultures prevail. Endress + Hauser provides for monitoring the most important parameters in the fermentation processes pH sensor "Memosens CPS171D" before.
As part of the energy revolution biogases gain increasing importance of waste water treatment plants and waste treatment plants. In the corresponding plant technology gas analysis plays an important role both for process monitoring as well as in securing the operated with the biogas plant components. Of the Gas Analyzer "Inca"Union of Instruments offers carefully coordinated equipment technology.
Der "Bioflo 320"Is a step into the future of Eppendorf as Bioprozessgeräte manufacturers. The new functionality with optional autoclavable and disposable bioreactors, intelligent sensors and IP network communication for multi-device control make the new station the first choice in the market for bioprocess in benchtop format.
At first glance, the contents of the bioreactors at the TU Vienna does not exactly look like a valuable source of raw materials. Prof. Christopher Herwig works with what others want to get rid normally. From industrial wastewater he succeeds at the Institute of Process Engineering, Environmental Engineering and Technical Biosciences, Vienna University of Technology, produce valuable substances - such as carotenoids, bioplastics or even products for the pharmaceutical industry.
Grüne Cable protection corrugated pipes of Reiku recognizes not by their color. The thermowells made from bio-based plastics are also black or gray as their counterparts from petroleum-based materials. Your advantages they exhibit continuous robot mode with high bending stress where they can achieve a significantly longer life. A first user is B + M Surface Systems, a technologically leading provider of fully automatic spray paint application systems for high-quality surfaces.
