Just a week before the start of the 2008 Olympics, the Velaro officially entered passenger service in China. The Chinese Railway Minister Liu Zhi Jun and the Deputy Prime Minister Zhang Dejiang attended the inauguration ceremony.
The CH3, the MoR (Ministry of Railways) designation for the Velaro in China, is now the fastest high speed train in China.
A total of ten trains are running on the Beijing–Tianjin line at headways of 10 to 20 minutes, making 43 trips per day and direction. Five of these trains are from the new CRH 3 series. The Chinese Ministry of Railways offers 30-minute service on this 115-kilometer-long route.
Chinese Railways placed an order for 60 Velaro type trains. Three of them were built in Krefeld, Germany, while the other 57 units are being built by Tangshan Locomotive & Rolling Stock Works in Tangshan.
The Velaro recently set a new Chinese high speed record of 394.3 km/h on the newly opened high speed route between the Chinese capital Beijing and the coastal city of Tianjin.

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
The 3D-printing technology, or additive manufacturing as it is often called, has long made the step out of scientific research laboratories into industrial...

Nanometer-scale magnetic perforated grids could create new possibilities for computing. Together with international colleagues, scientists from the Helmholtz Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) have shown how a cobalt grid can be reliably programmed at room temperature. In addition they discovered that for every hole ("antidot") three magnetic states can be configured. The results have been published in the journal "Scientific Reports".
Physicist Dr. Rantej Bali from the HZDR, together with scientists from Singapore and Australia, designed a special grid structure in a thin layer of cobalt in...
