IMPT | How does it affect friction and wear when production processes run without oxygen? This is what scientists at the Institute of Micro Production Technology (IMPT) are investigating in the Collaborative Research Centre 1368 "Oxygen-free production".
IFW | The order situation of contract manufacturers is subject to considerable fluctuations. Trading with capacities is used to smooth the utilization of capacity, but is associated with high costs. The solution: An assistance system for automated trading with production capacities.
ITA/HOT | Since July 1, 2020, the team of the Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD has a new member: Professor Dr. Antonio Cala Lesina works in the Optical Design and Multiphysics Simulation Resort. The topic "nanostructures" has already accompanied him for a large part of his international career.
IFA | Professor Peter Nyhuis is the new Dean of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at Leibniz University Hannover. He took over the position from Professor Jörg Wallaschek, who was responsible, among other duties, for the completion and relocation of the Campus Maschinenbau in Garbsen.
LZH | Additive Manufacturing processes can be used flexibly, for example to compensate for supply bottlenecks or to produce individualized components in a resource-saving manner. For companies to take advantage of these benefits, they must qualify their employees for 3D printing.
IFA/IPH | Versatile and efficient - this is how a sustainable factory should be. At the practical seminar on factory planning on 24 and 25 November 2020, specialists and managers will acquire comprehensive basic knowledge and will be able to put this directly into practice.
IPH | SARS-CoV-2 affects the whole world. Every day there are new reports, the future is uncertain. Numerous companies are affected by the crisis and wondering: How can we become crisis-proof? This is where the IPH comes in to help.
PZH | GREAN is establishing a central point of contact for production companies. There, managing directors and production managers will find information on how to organise their production "Corona-ready". Furthermore, weekly exchange rounds are offered.
ITA | Both the drive technology and the belt technology of continuously operating conveyor systems in mining reach their technical and economic limits. In order to overcome them, scientists at ITA are developing a novel drive concept.
IPH | If companies select a suitable transport system already during the factory planning stage, they can avoid subsequent adjustments and save a lot of time and costs. The IPH is developing a software demonstrator for automated layout and transport system planning.
PhoenixD | 52 million euros, 110 scientists, one common goal: the technological revolution in optics. In the Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD, researchers are working on small and inexpensive high-performance optics that open up completely new fields of application.
PhoenixD | The Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD cluster (Photonics Optics Engineering – Innovation Across Disciplines) receives 52 million euros in federal and state funding. How the approximately 110 researchers are using this money, explain the cluster's executive board members, Professor Dr Uwe Morgner and Professor Dr Ludger Overmeyer.
PhoenixD | Dr Reinhard Caspary is the technology coordinator of the Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD at Leibniz University Hannover. The graduate physicist and doctor of electrical engineering wishes the cluster members to develop a collective identity as "optics researchers".
