3rd Steel Polishing Workshop in Aachen – Intense exchange of information about steel polishing

19.09.2012
On November 19 and 20, 2012 Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT, Halmstad University (Sweden) and the steel manufacturers Uddeholms AB Sweden and Uddeholm Deutschland GmbH will be holding again a two-day workshop for the intense exchange of information about tool steel polishing. Industrial and scientific experts will be reporting on their experiences, on the state-of-the-art and the outlook for the future.
Industry and research focusing on polishing technologies

The aim of the workshop is to discuss current issues with the participants and determine the perspectives for new research objectives. As in the previous workshops in 2008 and 2010 the organizers will encourage the intense exchange of practical experiences between scientists and users of polishing technologies.

The workshop is divided in four sessions, and will be held by speakers of research and industrial organizations who will focus on the manual and the automated polishing process as well as on questions to metrology, design and the material. Discussions in small groups will help to pose new research questions and perspectives centered around steel polishing issues.

The workshop is limited to 50 participants to ensure the workshop character. The participation fee (170 Euro) covers the workshop transcript, meals and refreshments during the day and a joint dinner in stylish surroundings. The workshop will be held in English.

Venue:
Fraunhofer IPT
Steinbachstrasse 17
52074 Aachen
Germany

Participation fee:
170 Euro (incl. workshop documentation, lunch, refreshments, dinner on the evening of the first day)

Im Focus: Energy-autonomous and wireless monitoring protects marine gearboxes

The IPH presents a solution at HANNOVER MESSE 2015 to make ship traffic more reliable while decreasing the maintenance costs at the same time. In cooperation with project partners, the research institute from Hannover, Germany, has developed a sensor system which continuously monitors the condition of the marine gearbox, thus preventing breakdowns. Special feature: the monitoring system works wirelessly and energy-autonomously. The required electrical power is generated where it is needed – directly at the sensor.

As well as cars need to be certified regularly (in Germany by the TÜV – Technical Inspection Association), ships need to be inspected – if the powertrain stops...

Im Focus: 3-D satellite, GPS earthquake maps isolate impacts in real time

Method produced by UI researcher could improve reaction time to deadly, expensive quakes

When an earthquake hits, the faster first responders can get to an impacted area, the more likely infrastructure--and lives--can be saved.

Im Focus: Atlantic Ocean overturning found to slow down already today

The Atlantic overturning is one of Earth’s most important heat transport systems, pumping warm water northwards and cold water southwards. Also known as the Gulf Stream system, it is responsible for the mild climate in northwestern Europe. 

Scientists now found evidence for a slowdown of the overturning – multiple lines of observation suggest that in recent decades, the current system has been...

Im Focus: Robot inspects concrete garage floors and bridge roadways for damage

Because they are regularly subjected to heavy vehicle traffic, emissions, moisture and salt, above- and underground parking garages, as well as bridges, frequently experience large areas of corrosion. Most inspection systems to date have only been capable of inspecting smaller surface areas.

From April 13 to April 17 at the Hannover Messe (hall 2, exhibit booth C16), engineers from the Fraunhofer Institute for Nondestructive Testing IZFP will be...
