14th IFF Science Days in Magdeburg: Where Business and Research Meet

25.05.2011
Digital engineering, logistics and robotics: This year too, the Fraunhofer IFF’s annual research conference will again be devoted to current key issues and innovations in industry and research at three professional conferences held in parallel. The institute in Magdeburg is again expecting hundreds of guests from business and research at this meeting of experts on June 28 to 30, 2011.

How important will the digital factory be for industrial production? What technologies are enabling us to work hand-in-hand with robots in manufacturing and the world around us? Can we make our global logistics operations even more secure, reliable and efficient? Experts and prominent guests from industry and research will be discussing current issues and development trends in a wide variety of sectors at numerous events and workshops during the 14th IFF Science Days in Magdeburg.

Focus on Digital Technologies for Efficient Production
One focus will be digital technologies. Their full integration in production is becoming an increasingly crucial factor in corporate competition. Therefore, this year’s “Digital Engineering” conference will focus on the “Digital Factory in the Product and Production Equipment Life Cycle”. Among other issues, means of profitably implementing digital and virtual tools throughout the entire industrial chain of operations will be examined. What advances have been made in the development and implementation of new software tools and what must companies do to profit from them?
Logistics Days: “Secure, Reliable and Sustainable Logistics"
During the IFF Science Days, the Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation IFF and the Institute of Logistics and Material Handling Systems at Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg will be jointly hosting the “Magdeburg Logistics Days”. This year’s motto is “Secure, Reliable and Sustainable Logistics”. Among other things, speakers and attendees will be discussing the challenges of “Future Mobility” and solutions for “Energy Efficient Infrastructures”. Another focus will be the opportunities and potentials for the development of new intelligent localization and navigation solutions at the Galileo Test Bed that opened in Saxony-Anhalt last year.
Safe Human-Robot Interaction
The “Safe Human-Robot Interaction” conference on June 30, 2011 will focus on one of the key issues of current research in robotics, namely direct interaction and cooperation between humans and robots. Discussion will especially focus on new safety concepts and technologies, which affect the safety and routine usability of robots in workplaces shared with humans in the industrial, domestic or healthcare sectors, for instance.
Cooperation in Plant Engineering
The Cooperation in Plant Engineering Industry Working Group will also be convening during the 14th IFF Science Days. At these regularly held meetings, representatives of small and medium-sized enterprises exchange their views on and experiences with methods and trends of collaborative partnerships as a factor for success in plant manufacturing.

Im Focus: Significantly more productivity in USP lasers

In recent years, lasers with ultrashort pulses (USP) down to the femtosecond range have become established on an industrial scale. They could advance some applications with the much-lauded “cold ablation” – if that meant they would then achieve more throughput. A new generation of process engineering that will address this issue in particular will be discussed at the “4th UKP Workshop – Ultrafast Laser Technology” in April 2017.

Even back in the 1990s, scientists were comparing materials processing with nanosecond, picosecond and femtosesecond pulses. The result was surprising:...

Im Focus: Shape matters when light meets atom

Mapping the interaction of a single atom with a single photon may inform design of quantum devices

Have you ever wondered how you see the world? Vision is about photons of light, which are packets of energy, interacting with the atoms or molecules in what...

Im Focus: Novel silicon etching technique crafts 3-D gradient refractive index micro-optics

A multi-institutional research collaboration has created a novel approach for fabricating three-dimensional micro-optics through the shape-defined formation of porous silicon (PSi), with broad impacts in integrated optoelectronics, imaging, and photovoltaics.

Working with colleagues at Stanford and The Dow Chemical Company, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign fabricated 3-D birefringent...

Im Focus: Quantum Particles Form Droplets

In experiments with magnetic atoms conducted at extremely low temperatures, scientists have demonstrated a unique phase of matter: The atoms form a new type of quantum liquid or quantum droplet state. These so called quantum droplets may preserve their form in absence of external confinement because of quantum effects. The joint team of experimental physicists from Innsbruck and theoretical physicists from Hannover report on their findings in the journal Physical Review X.

“Our Quantum droplets are in the gas phase but they still drop like a rock,” explains experimental physicist Francesca Ferlaino when talking about the...

Im Focus: MADMAX: Max Planck Institute for Physics takes up axion research

The Max Planck Institute for Physics (MPP) is opening up a new research field. A workshop from November 21 - 22, 2016 will mark the start of activities for an innovative axion experiment. Axions are still only purely hypothetical particles. Their detection could solve two fundamental problems in particle physics: What dark matter consists of and why it has not yet been possible to directly observe a CP violation for the strong interaction.

The “MADMAX” project is the MPP’s commitment to axion research. Axions are so far only a theoretical prediction and are difficult to detect: on the one hand,...
