PZH | More efficient and sustainable production of large-scale components for use in wind turbines, aircraft and ships – this is the research topic of SCALE, the new research centre of Leibniz Universität Hannover. Björn Thümler, Lower Saxony’s Minister of Science and Culture took part in the ground-breaking ceremony.
match | Extreme temperatures are a problem not only for humans. Even classical robots go on strike when it’s freezing cold. For automated cryopreservation, the institute match is developing a parallel robot with flexure hinges that is able to handle specimens at ultra-cold temperatures below -130°C.
IW | At Hannover Messe 2020, the Institute of Materials Science (IW) will give talks on lightweight construction. In the speakers’ corner of Hall 23, specialists from industry and science will have the opportunity to speak about the topic. Applications can be submitted until the end of January.
PZH/LZH | Oxygen is vital to life – but in production engineering, oxidation makes metalworking difficult. In a new collaborative research centre, the aim of 40 researchers is therefore to develop and establish an "Oxygen-Free Production".
IFA | Since August 2019, Dr.-Ing. Vivian Bellmann is heading the Research and Industry Department at the Institute of Production Systems and Logistics (IFA). She is succeeding Professor Dr.-Ing. Matthias Schmidt, who took over a professorship at Leuphana Universität, Lüneburg.
IFUM | On the occasion of the Forming Colloquium Hannover (UKH) taking place on 4 and 5 March 2020, about 150 participants from industry and research will have the opportunity to discuss the most recent developments in forming technology.
IPH | How can drones fly autonomously across a factory? This was the research topic of Christian Lamping’s Master thesis. His promising and innovative concept was honoured with the IPH Future Award 2019.
IPH | Change of management at IPH: Mareile Kriwall takes over the management in the field of process technology on 1 November 2019. The 34-year old mechanical engineer is responsible for ten staff members and many research projects and industrial contracts.
IMPT | From research to industry: With the "Magnetic Information Platform", three researchers of the Institute of Micro Production Technology (IMPT) founded their own company, which is sponsored with about 725,000 euros from the EXIST programme.
IFW | How can we face the ever-increasing challenges in the aerospace industry of tomorrow? The "Machining Innovations Conference for Aerospace Industry" taking place on 27 and 28 November 2019 in Garbsen is a unique platform to get informed about the latest trends.
LZH | Today, mobility must be eco-friendly and efficient at a low emission level. The Technology Day on 6 and the Innovation Day on 7 November 2019 at the Laser Zentrum Hannover (LZH) will be showing which mobility concepts for road, air, water and rail vehicles are possible using laser technology.
IFW | One of the highest prizes awarded to young researchers within the field of production engineering goes to Dr.-Ing. Benjamin Bergmann of the Institute of Production Engineering and Machine Tools (IFW).
