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.
PZH | With contributions of science and industry, the Transregio 73 presents the current state of the art of sheet bulk metal forming, a new forming technology. Registration for the colloquium on 12 March 2019 at the Hannover Centre for Production Technology (PZH) is already possible.
PZH/LZH | All institutes of the Hannover Centre for Production Technology as well as the Laser Zentrum will contribute to the cluster's motto "Photonics, Optics, and Engineering: Innovation Across Disciplines". The common goal of the scientists is to redefine the design and manufacture of precision optics.
LZH | Individually shaped earmolds are already commercially available, but do not take into account the varying tissue hardness in the ear canal. In a joint project on multi-material printing, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. works on hearing aids with customized hardness zones.
LZH | More and more high school graduates are applying for a Voluntary Scientific Year (FWJ) at the LZH. Nine successful applicants are actively involved in LZH projects until the end of August 2019 - for example, in the field of optical systems for space.
PZH/IPH | Since 2015 the Mittelstand 4.0 Centre of Excellence „Mit uns digital!“ informs SMEs in Lower Saxony and Bremen about the opportunities and challenges of digitalisation. Now the funding from the Federal Ministry of Economic Affairs was renewed.
IW/IFW | The quality of a component is dependent on its subsurface properties. However, their process-reliable definition can only be reached by component-specific production control. By the use of soft sensors and a learning process model, the production system shall modify process parameters autonomously.
IPH | With his research on speech control in automated guided vehicles (AGV), Dr.-Ing. Florian Podszus was in the finals of the Science Award for Supply Chain Management. The IPH alumnus presented his research results at the 35th International Supply Chain Conference.
IFW | What does digitalisation mean and how can new work tasks be understood? There are many open questions, but employees often find it difficult to match job and continuing education. To find a remedy, researchers from Hannover are presently developing an online-based learning platform.
IFUM | IFUM uses thermomechanical process control to produce thin-walled gear rims. Within the scope of the joint research project “Lightweight Forging”, such gear rims are combined to weight- and efficiency-optimized gear wheels used for gearboxes in cars.
LZH | During the EuroBLECH 2018, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. will be opening the labs for visitors on 25 October 2018 from 11:00 a.m. to 5:00 p.m. In live demonstrations, the research institute will be showing application examples for the laser material processing of the future.
IW | The Division Joining and Surface Technology (FORTIS) of the Institute of Materials Science (IW) organizes in cooperation with the German Society for Materials Science (DGM) the workshop “Modern Coating Methods” taking place on 6 and 7 November 2018 in Witten.
IPH | On 20 September, the institutes of the Zuse Foundation opened their doors to politics. At the Institut für Integrierte Produktion Hannover (IPH) gGmbH, the Hanoverian SPD Member of the German Bundestag Fahimi learnt more about research in production technology.
