Robots at construction sites: Concrete 3D printing

match | The construction industry is currently facing three significant challenges: workforce shortage, low productivity and high environmental impact. To counter these, researchers at the match develop algorithms for robot-based additive manufacturing of near-net-shape concrete components.

Research

Cycle time optimization using artificial intelligence

IFW | Determining the cause of cycle time fluctuations in linked production lines and predicting the effect of delays is a complex task. The IFW is investigating how artificial intelligence can be used for this purpose in the IIP-Ecosphere project.

Research

Sealing concept for flashless forging of aluminum

IPH | In cooperation with Otto Fuchs KG, IPH is researching methods to predict and avoid thin flash during flashless forging of aluminum. The development of target-oriented sealing concepts should significantly increase process efficiency in the future.

Research

Researchers develop miniaturized quantum gravimeters

IMPT/IQ | In order to measure the gravitational acceleration g due to gravity with high precision, scientists are developing miniaturized quantum gravimeters. These could be used on satellites and in research rockets, to study climate change or for earthquake warning.

Research

Magnetic identification designed for industry

IMPT | The magnetic information platform (MIP), developed by a start-up from the Institute of Micro Production Technology (IMPT), is significantly more robust than RFID. The new technology can withstand high temperatures and harsh environments and can be read through metallic layers.

Research

Predicting machining and set-up times automatically

IFW | Estimating the effort of production orders is a complex task. Machine learning methods can provide support, but data preparation is time-consuming. The solution: Automated data preparation and effort estimation with the JobTRADE platform.

Research

3 years Lower Saxony ADDITIV – a summary

LZH/IPH | How can additive process chains be automated and print quality monitored? How is a component made of metal and plastic created in multi-material printing? Scientists from Lower Saxony ADDITIV have been researching this and more in the past three years.

Research

Nickel-based superalloys: In detail and in 3D

IW | Nickel-based superalloys are typical high-temperature materials and often used for turbine blades in jet engines. The Institute of Materials Science (IW) is investigating the microstructure of these materials and its changes under stress.

Research

Holistic configuration of production planning and control

IFA | How to configure production planning and control (PPC) holistically? This is what scientists from Hanover and Lüneburg are investigating. They are analysing interactions between PPC tasks and processes and integrating them into the Hanoverian Supply Chain Model (HaSupMo).

Research

Autonomous deburring of structural components

IFW | Project AdaPES has started: In cooperation with the software company SWMS, IFW is researching the process planning of deburring processes of milled components based on optical edge detection in order to reduce costs, complexity and processing time considerably.

Research

Additive manufacturing of rubber components

ITA/DIK | Researchers from Hannover are developing a new 3D-printing process: Additive Manufacturing of Elastomers (AME). With rubber, they are opening up a completely new group of materials for additive manufacturing and creating an economical way of manufacturing spare parts.

Research

3D-printed forging dies with integrated cooling

IFUM | Manufacturing hot forming tools with integrated cooling channels from highly wear-resistant material and thus increasing the tool life – this is the goal being pursued by scientists from Hanover and Remscheid in a joint project.

Research

Orienting with air: Aerodynamic feeding technology

match/IFA | Not a feeding technology like any other: The aerodynamic feeding technology enables fast and reliable feeding of a large number of components – without manual retooling. Scientists from match and IFA make the "Aero" fit for the future.

Research

Economic production of hybrid components made of metal and FRP

IFUM/match | Hybrid components can be produced in 30-second cycles. This is made possible by an isothermal tool concept with automated handling technology, which is being developed by scientists at IFUM and match in the research project "Load-compatible FRP/metal composites".
