Modern materials and processes are used for lightweight construction, environmental protection, they have more performance or save costs. We present innovations from additive manufacturing on the way to suitability for series production 3D pressure, surface technology as well as about materials like Glass, ceramics, plastics, metals, Composites and much more - you can't miss that!

Brand new materials and processes

by BASF, Schmolz & Bickenbach, Igus, Rampf, among others

  • Rampf presents a structural resin for the trim in the aircraft main landing gear and a cyanate ester infusion system for the composite manufacturing of aviation. The new cladding replaces the previous aluminum shell, thus avoiding problems caused by natural frequencies. The low-viscosity infusion system offers first-class mechanical properties. Both innovations meet the high requirements for fire protection.
  • Nägeli Swiss is showing a fiber composite wheel chock for aircraft up to 350 t for lightweight construction. The Chock Max by Alphachocks is very robust and light. It can be folded under the wheel before it can be removed with little effort. The patented series product is manufactured using the new ACC process. Fiber chips can be pressed into complex 3D molded parts with almost any desired geometry. This also applies to serial numbers. ACC opens up unimagined opportunities for the...
  • Nortec Hall 3A, Booth 331 Buy bent parts and laser parts online: It was only a good two years ago that Laserhub presented its digital platform for automated order and order management for sheet metal processing such as laser cutting, folding, powder coating, deburring or bending sheet metal parts. In 2020, the startup will present an innovation in the cloud-based offerings. It expands the strategy and capacities towards large series orders.
  • Copper is an efficient material when construction planners are looking for a sustainable material. According to the German Copper Institute, important changes to European environmental certification are now acknowledging the contribution that copper can make to the circular economy. The amendments to the EN 2019 standard published in October 15804 contain core rules for product categories (PCR) for type III environmental declarations for every construction product and construction work.
  • ABB robots for 3D printing can now be programmed in just 30 minutes. For this, functionalities have been integrated into the simulation and offline programming software "Robotstudio". The novelty will now be presented for the first time at the robotics fair Irex in Japan. Thanks to the new software that is part of the Powerpac portfolio, companies no longer have to carry out manual programming and can therefore manufacture 3D printing components faster.
  • Minitec now also manufactures precision steel shafts in series. The provider of a modular system with aluminum profiles and linear technology offers cutting, axial, radial and milling machining for this. To this end, the company has equipped itself with the latest technology at its Waldmohr location in Rhineland-Palatinate. The latest CNC machines, constant further training of employees and comprehensive quality management are the basis for precision, economy and reliable adherence to deadlines.
  • Researchers at the Swiss Federal Institute of Technology (ETH) in Zurich use a 3D printing process to create complex, highly porous glass structures. With this technology, customized objects can be produced.
  • With the new modular microwave technology "Raku Microwave Curing" from Rampf, ultra-fast curing and process times are achieved when mixing and dosing sealing systems, adhesives and potting compounds. The focus is on the thermal activation of one- and two-component plastic systems using microwave radiation.
  • SPS Hall 4A, Stand 126 Touch displays, for smartphones and tablets, for example, use ultra-thin glasses, the manufacture of which places special demands on temperature measurement technology. Optris has launched the new CT Laser G7 infrared thermometer for this application. It precisely measures the surface temperatures of glasses in the range from 100 ° to 1200 ° C.
