The German Fraunhofer Society, world-famous for its music compression method MP3, takes its leading packing solution "PackAssistant" (www.packassistant.com) to the Chinese market. The fast and intuitive software makes best use of container space and saves transportation and storage costs. Developed with and used by the German automotive companies AUDI and BMW, the software improves the packing density of containers by up to 20 %.
Experienced packing planners usually spend a lot of time meticulously arranging and packing parts with complex shapes and still, in most cases, they will not achieve the same packing density as with "PackAssistant". The software calculates the optimal packing arrangement of identical parts in standard containers by using 3Ddesigns (CAD). This also works for parts with complex shapes, as the software will identify and take the individual shape of the object into account.
"PackAssistant" supports different types of packaging: with compartments, without compartments and solid layer pads, with flexible intermediate layers and in stacks, parameters for customer-specific packing solutions and the possibility of selecting the space between parts, container top/bottom, container sides and compartments. Furthermore, the software allows the automatic choice of an appropriate container from a list and the adherence to the maximum load of the container.
Well known customers from the German industry (e.g. Audi AG, Behr, BMW Group, Daimler Chrysler, faurecia) appreciate the following "PackAssistant" featureso Optimal container utilization

University of Connecticut researchers have created a biodegradable composite made of silk fibers that can be used to repair broken load-bearing bones without the complications sometimes presented by other materials.
Repairing major load-bearing bones such as those in the leg can be a long and uncomfortable process.
Study published in the journal ACS Applied Materials & Interfaces is the outcome of an international effort that included teams from Dresden and Berlin in Germany, and the US.
Scientists at the Helmholtz-Zentrum Dresden-Rossendorf (HZDR) together with colleagues from the Helmholtz-Zentrum Berlin (HZB) and the University of Virginia...
Novel highly efficient and brilliant gamma-ray source: Based on model calculations, physicists of the Max PIanck Institute for Nuclear Physics in Heidelberg propose a novel method for an efficient high-brilliance gamma-ray source. A giant collimated gamma-ray pulse is generated from the interaction of a dense ultra-relativistic electron beam with a thin solid conductor. Energetic gamma-rays are copiously produced as the electron beam splits into filaments while propagating across the conductor. The resulting gamma-ray energy and flux enable novel experiments in nuclear and fundamental physics.
The typical wavelength of light interacting with an object of the microcosm scales with the size of this object. For atoms, this ranges from visible light to...
Stable joint cartilage can be produced from adult stem cells originating from bone marrow. This is made possible by inducing specific molecular processes occurring during embryonic cartilage formation, as researchers from the University and University Hospital of Basel report in the scientific journal PNAS.
Certain mesenchymal stem/stromal cells from the bone marrow of adults are considered extremely promising for skeletal tissue regeneration. These adult stem...
