IFW | IPH | LZH | This year, the Hannover Messe is taking place as a digital event. The Mittelstand 4.0-Kompetenzzentrum Hannover and the IPH are each present with a digital booth. Niedersachsen ADDITIV is represented at the joint stand of the state of Lower Saxony.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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.
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).
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.
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.
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.
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.
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".
