Technology Developments for Technical Textiles and Composites for Practical Applications

26.01.2012
13th Chemnitz Textile Technology Conference on 14 and 15 March 2012

“Fibre-reinforced polymer composites in automobile manufacturing – challenges for the future” is the title of the opening lecture to be given by Dr. Olaf Täger from the Volkswagen Group’s Research Department at the 13th Chemnitz Textile Technology Conference (CTT).

The international conference dedicated to the issue of “Value Creation Opportunities with Textile Technology” will take place at Chemnitz University of Technology on 14 and 15 March 2012.

Other lecturers at the plenary sessions will include Prof. Dr. Chokri Cherif from Dresden University of Technology and Prof. Lothar Kroll from Chemnitz University of Technology, who will speak on “Developing manufacturing technologies suitable for use in large-scale production environments for complex fibre-reinforced polymer composite components”; they will illustrate the need for action in order to fully exploit the lightweight design potential of textiles and fibre-reinforced polymer composites.

More than 50 speakers in all will present the latest expertise from industrial companies and research institutes. The subject areas are “Resource Efficient Machines and Processes”, “Finishing and Functionalization”, “Process and Structure Simulation”, “Procedures for Process Controls and Tests,” “Semi-Finished Products and Preform Technologies” and “Composites in Lightweight Design”.

The 13th Chemnitz Textile Technology Conference therefore provides a cross-sector platform for presenting results and sharing experiences related to the complementary process stages in various manufacturing chains. www.chemtextiles.de

Im Focus: AchemAsia 2019 will take place in Shanghai

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.

Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...

Im Focus: Water is not the same as water

Water molecules exist in two different forms with almost identical physical properties. For the first time, researchers have succeeded in separating the two forms to show that they can exhibit different chemical reactivities. These results were reported by researchers from the University of Basel and their colleagues in Hamburg in the scientific journal Nature Communications.

From a chemical perspective, water is a molecule in which a single oxygen atom is linked to two hydrogen atoms. It is less well known that water exists in two...
