The Value Creation Potential of High-Tech Materials

Explained in an Interdisciplinary and Practical Way: 13th Chemnitz Textile Technology Conference on 14 - 15 March 2012 / Call for Papers Launched

The title of the 13th Chemnitz Textile Technology Conference (CTT) is “Value Creation Opportunities with Textile Technology”.

The international conference will take place at Chemnitz University of Technology on 14 - 15 March 2012. “A basic understanding of textile production and finishing processes is required for the rapid advances in the use of textile-based high-tech materials like composites, preforms and complex structural components in many areas. Our next conference will communicate this expertise both in an interdisciplinary and practical manner,” Dr. Wolfgang Nendel, Chairman of the Cetex Chemnitz Textile Machine Development Association (Cetex e. V.), announces.

The main topic areas will be “Resource Efficient Machines and Processes”, “Finishing and Functionalization”, “Semi-Finished Products and Preform Technologies”, “Procedures for Process Controls and Tests”, “Composites in Lightweight Design” and “Process and Structure Simulation”. Speakers can submit their suggestions for papers at the website by 30 June 2011. The language of the conference will be German. There will be a company and poster presentation.

270 specialists from seven different countries attended the 12th CTT in November 2009, including more than 100 from different branches of industry. The Cetex Association is organising the conference in conjunction with the Institute of Lightweight Structures and Sports Technology (IST) as well as the Institute of Conveyor Technology and Plastics (ifk) at Chemnitz University of Technology, the Saxon Textiles Research Institute (STFI) and the North-East German Textile and Clothing Industry Association (vti).

Im Focus: Space observation with radar to secure Germany's space infrastructure

Satellites in near-Earth orbit are at risk due to the steady increase in space debris. But their mission in the areas of telecommunications, navigation or weather forecasts is essential for society. Fraunhofer FHR therefore develops radar-based systems which allow the detection, tracking and cataloging of even the smallest particles of debris. Satellite operators who have access to our data are in a better position to plan evasive maneuvers and prevent destructive collisions. From April, 25-29 2018, Fraunhofer FHR and its partners will exhibit the complementary radar systems TIRA and GESTRA as well as the latest radar techniques for space observation across three stands at the ILA Berlin.

The "traffic situation" in space is very tense: the Earth is currently being orbited not only by countless satellites but also by a large volume of space...

Im Focus: Researchers Discover New Anti-Cancer Protein

An international team of researchers has discovered a new anti-cancer protein. The protein, called LHPP, prevents the uncontrolled proliferation of cancer cells in the liver. The researchers led by Prof. Michael N. Hall from the Biozentrum, University of Basel, report in “Nature” that LHPP can also serve as a biomarker for the diagnosis and prognosis of liver cancer.

The incidence of liver cancer, also known as hepatocellular carcinoma, is steadily increasing. In the last twenty years, the number of cases has almost doubled...

Im Focus: Researchers at Fraunhofer monitor re-entry of Chinese space station Tiangong-1

In just a few weeks from now, the Chinese space station Tiangong-1 will re-enter the Earth's atmosphere where it will to a large extent burn up. It is possible that some debris will reach the Earth's surface. Tiangong-1 is orbiting the Earth uncontrolled at a speed of approx. 29,000 km/h.Currently the prognosis relating to the time of impact currently lies within a window of several days. The scientists at Fraunhofer FHR have already been monitoring Tiangong-1 for a number of weeks with their TIRA system, one of the most powerful space observation radars in the world, with a view to supporting the German Space Situational Awareness Center and the ESA with their re-entry forecasts.

Following the loss of radio contact with Tiangong-1 in 2016 and due to the low orbital height, it is now inevitable that the Chinese space station will...

Im Focus: Alliance „OLED Licht Forum“ – Key partner for OLED lighting solutions

Fraunhofer Institute for Organic Electronics, Electron Beam and Plasma Technology FEP, provider of research and development services for OLED lighting solutions, announces the founding of the “OLED Licht Forum” and presents latest OLED design and lighting solutions during light+building, from March 18th – 23rd, 2018 in Frankfurt a.M./Germany, at booth no. F91 in Hall 4.0.

They are united in their passion for OLED (organic light emitting diodes) lighting with all of its unique facets and application possibilities. Thus experts in...

Im Focus: Mars' oceans formed early, possibly aided by massive volcanic eruptions

Oceans formed before Tharsis and evolved together, shaping climate history of Mars

A new scenario seeking to explain how Mars' putative oceans came and went over the last 4 billion years implies that the oceans formed several hundred million...
