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.

At the 2018 ILA Berlin Air Show from April 25–29, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT is showcasing extreme high-speed Laser Material Deposition (EHLA): A video documents how for metal components that are highly loaded, EHLA has already proved itself as an alternative to hard chrome plating, which is now allowed only under special conditions.

At the ILA Berlin, hall 4, booth 202, Fraunhofer FHR will present two radar sensors for navigation support of drones. The sensors are valuable components in the implementation of autonomous flying drones: they function as obstacle detectors to prevent collisions. Radar sensors also operate reliably in restricted visibility, e.g. in foggy or dusty conditions. Due to their ability to measure distances with high precision, the radar sensors can also be used as altimeters when other sources of information such as barometers or GPS are not available or cannot operate optimally.
Drones play an increasingly important role in the area of logistics and services. Well-known logistic companies place great hope in these compact, aerial...
