ponticon10519Research Report

As part of a joint project with Fraunhofer, Ponticon manufactures additive manufacturing equipment that can be used to produce 3D bodies and metal structures. Thus, the company makes the "Ehla" method of the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT usable for commercial series applications.

For the quality control of large-scale objects from the semiconductor and electronics industry or for the rapid examination of biological samples has the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT developed a high-speed microscope that digitizes samples at up to 500 images per second.

HAWK0419The Göttingen University of Applied Sciences and Arts (HAWK) introduces a method which is to make natural fiber fabric more durable by plasma treatment. Under the direction of dr. Bernd Schieche and Martin Bellmann (M.Eng.), The new process should increase the long-term stability of biohybrid fiber composites, for example against temperature fluctuations, moisture or UV radiation.

fraunhofer0419As part of the research project 3D-Living Lab Scientists at the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering (IOF) have developed an 3D measurement technology and sensor that enables complex movements to be recorded and controlled in real time. The result is demonstrated on a wall of 150 balls, which three-dimensionally copies every head, arm and hand movement of a person standing in front of it.

Research Report

Lapp is researching DC for the industry, announcing the next energy revolution. First pilot projects show the potential of a DC power supply, saving up to 20% of energy. After introducing the first cables for DC applications last year, the company will be presenting further versions this year.

Freudenberg0119Research Report

Synthetic fuels are expected to significantly improve the carbon footprint of conventional engines. New results from the materials research of Freudenberg Sealing Technologies now show the impact that the OME discussed as diesel replacement has on the long-term stability of gaskets. Accordingly, seals based on the already widely used material fluororubber (FKM) are generally also suitable for regenerative fuels. But there are surprisingly big differences between the individual FKM types.
