SERAC of France has developed Canopy®, a completely new generation of monobloc filling and capping machines for PET bottles. The machines are very different from existing rotary fillers - they are compact, functional, easy to use and economical, providing exceptional accessibility. The Canopy® concept is based on six patents filed and registered by the company. SERAC will be at the INTERPACK trade fair in Düsseldorf from 21 to 27 April 2005.
A major feature of the Canopy® machines is that the mechanical components have been transferred to the upper part of the canopy, thus increasing the accessibility of the packing machines. This reduces fatigue and risk to operators as maintenance can be performed at human height. Canopy® takes up only half the floor size of standard machines. The container neck transfer system, redesigned sensors and the invention of a new dosing system, Dynaflow®, have led to a considerable reduction in area between the filling nozzles - the machines are now more compact and simpler to use. Electricity cabinets and control panels are also housed in the machines.
Canopy® filling and capping machines are very easy to use. All users need in order to start production are two parameters: the weight of the load and the production rate. Dosage takes place with no contact between the nozzle and the bottle, using a laminar jet to avoid splashing. Waste is collected in the lower container which is easily accessible and washable.

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...
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,...

The efficiency of power electronic systems is not solely dependent on electrical efficiency but also on weight, for example, in mobile systems. When the weight of relevant components and devices in airplanes, for instance, is reduced, fuel savings can be achieved and correspondingly greenhouse gas emissions decreased. New materials and components based on gallium nitride (GaN) can help to reduce weight and increase the efficiency. With these new materials, power electronic switches can be operated at higher switching frequency, resulting in higher power density and lower material costs.
Researchers at the Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE together with partners have investigated how these materials can be used to make power...
