Decentralized control of belt conveyor systems

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.

Research

Simultaneous planning layout and transport system

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.

Think optics research as an independent discipline

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".

Research

Printing complex glass structures in 3D using the laser

LZH | So far, 3D printing processes for glass materials have been rare. The LZH is developing a laser-based process for the Additive Manufacturing of glass components. Quartz glass components for optics and medical technology can be manufactured using laser deposition welding the future.

Adhesives be crazy – How to reckon with shrinkage

match | In the precision assembly of hybrid microsystems, the shrinkage of adhesives is undesirable because it causes internal stresses and assembly errors. A simulation model makes it possible to predict and counteract positional deviations.
