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".

Research

Investigation of wear in an oxygen-free atmosphere

IMPT | How does it affect friction and wear when production processes run without oxygen? This is what scientists at the Institute of Micro Production Technology (IMPT) are investigating in the Collaborative Research Centre 1368 "Oxygen-free production".

Research

Automated trading of production capacities

IFW | The order situation of contract manufacturers is subject to considerable fluctuations. Trading with capacities is used to smooth the utilization of capacity, but is associated with high costs. The solution: An assistance system for automated trading with production capacities.

Research

Leadership and teamwork in the digital age

IFA | Scientists at IFA explore digital approaches to leadership and interaction in teams. They support managers in guiding their employees through the turbulent changes that technological innovations and digitization bring about.

Research

Decentralized control of belt conveyor systems

ITA | Both the drive technology and the belt technology of continuously operating conveyor systems in mining reach their technical and economic limits. In order to overcome them, scientists at ITA are developing a novel drive concept.

Research

Simultaneous planning layout and transport system

IPH | If companies select a suitable transport system already during the factory planning stage, they can avoid subsequent adjustments and save a lot of time and costs. The IPH is developing a software demonstrator for automated layout and transport system planning.

Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD: Here begins the revolution in optics

PhoenixD | 52 million euros, 110 scientists, one common goal: the technological revolution in optics. In the Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD, researchers are working on small and inexpensive high-performance optics that open up completely new fields of application.

Research

Printing complex glass structures in 3D using the laser

LZH | So far, 3D printing processes for glass materials have been rare. The LZH is developing a laser-based process for the Additive Manufacturing of glass components. Quartz glass components for optics and medical technology can be manufactured using laser deposition welding the future.

Research

Simulation of additive manufacturing of precision optics

IFW | From design to quality control, everything is done digitally. The Institute of Production Engineering and Machine Tools (IFW) simulates the additive manufacturing of glass to optimally plan the processes for the production of precision optics.

Research

Adhesives be crazy – How to reckon with shrinkage

match | In the precision assembly of hybrid microsystems, the shrinkage of adhesives is undesirable because it causes internal stresses and assembly errors. A simulation model makes it possible to predict and counteract positional deviations.

Research

With plastic injection moulding to the optical platform

IMPT | Manufacturing of high-precision microsystems quickly and cost-effectively: This is what the IMPT is working on. Based on plastic injection molding and various coating techniques, an optical platform is being created.

Research

Data transmission with printed optical waveguides

ITA | Printed optical waveguides could replace electrical circuit boards in the future. This is demonstrated by scientists at the Institute of Transport and Automation Technology (ITA) in the PhoenixD Cluster of Excellence using the example of an optical decimal binary converter.

Research

Assembly without handling: self-assembly for precision optics

match | In order to position components for optical microsystems quickly and precisely, self-assembly techniques are the ideal solution. The Institute of Assembly Technology (match) is researching this innovative process in the PhoenixD cluster of excellence.
