International scientists get to know the Federal Cluster of Excellence in Chemnitz

18.10.2013
On 24. and 25. October 2013 the “International MERGE Technologies Conference (IMTC) for Lightweight Structures” takes place - presentation from representatives of the industry and researchers

One year after the start of the Federal Cluster of Excellence “Merge Technologies for Multifunctional Lightweight Structures” at Technische Universität Chemnitz Professor Lothar Kroll, CEO, and Dr. Jürgen Tröltzsch, COO, invite to the first international conference on 24. and 25. October 2013 in Chemnitz.

The “International MERGE Technologies Conference (IMTC) for Lightweight Structures” takes place at the Virtual Reality Center from the Fraunhofer Institute for Machine Tools and Forming Technology (IWU), Reichenhainer Str. 88.

About 200 visitors from over 10 nations are expected to the conference at Chemnitz. Greeting words come from representatives from politics, industry and academia. The main focus of the IMTC lies on four themes:
- Session 1 „Composites“, Chair: Professor Bernhard Wielage
- Session 2 „Metal-based hybrids“, Chair: PD Welf-Guntram Drossel
- Session 3 „Lightweight structures“, Chair: Professor Thomas Lampke
- Session 4 „Smart systems integration”, Chair: Professor Thomas Geßner
“It is to highlight the worldwide unique combination of different academic disciplines in key enabling technologies within the Cluster MERGE. The importance is shown by the balanced mixture of speakers”, says Dr. Tröltzsch. Apart from presentation from representatives of the industry, the researchers of MERGE show their latest works and results in their specific research area. The IMTC 2013 is an intersection for the experts from academia and industry with regard to resource efficiency in mass production of hybrid technologies and lightweight structures. Professor Kroll emphasises, that “by merging individual material-specific manufacturing processes for the mass production of lightweight structures, considerable savings of energy and material will be attained”.

Im Focus: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
