Minimal pressure masured based on magnetism

IMPT | Classical gas pressure cannot be measured in this way – but the deformation of an elastic membrane. A measurement based on magnetism is possible when hard magnetic particles are embedded in the membrane. This is proved by experiments made at the Institute of Micro Production Technology (IMPT).

Research

3D printing of conductive tracks directly on component surface

ITA | ITA develops an innovative 3D printing process to create conductive tracks directly on component surfaces. The process is transferrable to various substrate materials and types of components and is supposed to be faster and more environmental-friendly than established processes.

Mobile laser device for technical rescue operations

LZH |Modern materials give passenger cabins a high safety standard. The only drawback: With conventional life-saving equipment, car body parts often cannot be cut quickly enough in case of an emergency. The solution: an innovative mobile laser device for complex accident scenarios.

Research

Auto-adaptive minimization of transfer vibrations in multi-stage presses

IFUM | Undesirable vibrations can be generated by the transfer systems used for the fully automated component transfer between several subsequent forming processes. For this reason, researchers at IFUM are developing a system that minimizes the vibrations occurring during transport, thus increasing the productivity of the forming systems.

Trade fairs in June: The LZH at the IdeenExpo and LASER fair

LZH | For the LZH, June 2019 is all about the IdeenExpo (Hannover, 15 to 23 June) and the LASER fair (Munich, 24 to 27 June). At the IdeenExpo, lasers will be melting moondust. Afterwards, at the LASER fair, the LZH will be showing, among others, a laser processing head for internal cylindrical structures.
