LZH | Since 01 July 2019, Dr.-Ing. Peter Jäschke is heading the Production and Systems Department of the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH). He thus succeeded Dr.-Ing. Oliver Suttmann, who is now working in industry.
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.
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.
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.
IFW, ITV | To increase the efficiency of combustion engines, researchers of IFW and ITV are doing research on how to reduce friction losses in engines. For this purpose, they are machining micro dimples in cylinder liners to investigate their friction-reducing properties.
PZH | The collaborative research centre (CRC) at Leibniz University Hannover has been extended for a further four years. The German Research Foundation will provide around ten million euros of additional funding.
IW | Corundum blasting used as a pre-treatment of coating surfaces is more and more replaced by machining processes. Researchers are developing an innovative combination of processes for the form-locked bonding of thermally sprayed coatings.
LZH | After six months at the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH), one thing is certain for Tabea Karg and Linda Thies: they would recommend the Niedersachsen-Technikum to all high school graduates with an interest in the STEM subjects (Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics).
IFA | As an innovative research institution, the Institute of Production Systems and Logistics (IFA) wants to offer its students, staff members and visitors an innovative space for creative developments. Since last year, IFA has been given a new appearance.
match | Environment-friendly innovation using fibre composites is impeded by tight forming limits combined with a challenging automation process. In this context, the Institute of Assembly Technology (match) is developing a method for automated mass production.
IFA | Practical experience: The workshop on production controlling organised by IFA shows the potential of data-based, real-time evaluations and intelligent support systems for an improved production logistics in companies.
LZH/IPH | At the Hannover Messe, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be presenting individual all-in-one solutions for processes and systems for laser material processing. The Institute for Integrated Production Hannover (IPH) gGmbH will be showing the virtually supported assembly using an additively manufactured gearbox.
IFW | Creating material flow simulations for bottleneck analyses, factory planning or stock analyses requires a lot of initial effort. IFW is currently developing a procedure that scans the production facilities and then creates a digital simulation model in an automated process.
ITA | To enable the production of larger quantities of smaller chips, ITA is investigating an ultra-fast assembly technology for electronic components. The researchers are using laser technology for the contactless transfer of bare chips onto a substrate.
IPH | By automating process steps, additive manufacturing can be integrated into industrial value chains. The Institut für Integrierte Produktion Hannover (IPH) gGmbH has been designing a process chain linking 3d printers and mounting stations automatically.
