IFW | Marc-Andre Dittrich has received the Otto Kienzle Commemoration Medal. The WGP, the Scientific Society for Production Engineering, honored his outstanding interdisciplinary research achievements at the interface between production engineering and computer science.
ITA | At the 14th International Congress MID, the conference paper by Ejvind Olsen, research associate at ITA, was awarded a Best Paper Award. His paper is about additive manufacturing of conductive copper traces.
IPH | Excellent conference contribution: IPH employee Dominik Melcher received an Outstanding Paper Award at IEEM 2020. His paper is about capturing factory layouts using an automated flying drone.
IPH | How can Automated Guided Vehicles (AGV) be controlled with gestures only? Viktor Schell dealt with this question at the end of his mechanical engineering studies. He received the IPH Future Award 2020 for his master thesis.
LZH | The design engineering of 3D-printed parts requires employees to rethink and acquire additional expertise. Since 2018, there has even been a specially tailored offer for trainees: the additional qualification for additive manufacturing processes.
IFW | Using Artificial Intelligence in production faster and easier: That is the vision of IIP-Ecosphere. Per Schreiber, research associate at the Institute of Production Engineering and Machine Tools (IFW), is responsible for coordinating this multifaceted project.
ITA/HOT | Since July 1, 2020, the team of the Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD has a new member: Professor Dr. Antonio Cala Lesina works in the Optical Design and Multiphysics Simulation Resort. The topic "nanostructures" has already accompanied him for a large part of his international career.
IFA | Professor Peter Nyhuis is the new Dean of the Faculty of Mechanical Engineering at Leibniz University Hannover. He took over the position from Professor Jörg Wallaschek, who was responsible, among other duties, for the completion and relocation of the Campus Maschinenbau in Garbsen.
LZH | Additive Manufacturing processes can be used flexibly, for example to compensate for supply bottlenecks or to produce individualized components in a resource-saving manner. For companies to take advantage of these benefits, they must qualify their employees for 3D printing.
PhoenixD | The Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD cluster (Photonics Optics Engineering – Innovation Across Disciplines) receives 52 million euros in federal and state funding. How the approximately 110 researchers are using this money, explain the cluster's executive board members, Professor Dr Uwe Morgner and Professor Dr Ludger Overmeyer.
PhoenixD | Dr Reinhard Caspary is the technology coordinator of the Cluster of Excellence PhoenixD at Leibniz University Hannover. The graduate physicist and doctor of electrical engineering wishes the cluster members to develop a collective identity as "optics researchers".
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.
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.
