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".
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".
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.
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.
