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: Neutron star merger directly observed for the first time

University of Maryland researchers contribute to historic detection of gravitational waves and light created by event

On August 17, 2017, at 12:41:04 UTC, scientists made the first direct observation of a merger between two neutron stars--the dense, collapsed cores that remain...

Im Focus: Breaking: the first light from two neutron stars merging

Seven new papers describe the first-ever detection of light from a gravitational wave source. The event, caused by two neutron stars colliding and merging together, was dubbed GW170817 because it sent ripples through space-time that reached Earth on 2017 August 17. Around the world, hundreds of excited astronomers mobilized quickly and were able to observe the event using numerous telescopes, providing a wealth of new data.

Previous detections of gravitational waves have all involved the merger of two black holes, a feat that won the 2017 Nobel Prize in Physics earlier this month....

Im Focus: Smart sensors for efficient processes

Material defects in end products can quickly result in failures in many areas of industry, and have a massive impact on the safe use of their products. This is why, in the field of quality assurance, intelligent, nondestructive sensor systems play a key role. They allow testing components and parts in a rapid and cost-efficient manner without destroying the actual product or changing its surface. Experts from the Fraunhofer IZFP in Saarbrücken will be presenting two exhibits at the Blechexpo in Stuttgart from 7–10 November 2017 that allow fast, reliable, and automated characterization of materials and detection of defects (Hall 5, Booth 5306).

When quality testing uses time-consuming destructive test methods, it can result in enormous costs due to damaging or destroying the products. And given that...

Im Focus: Cold molecules on collision course

Using a new cooling technique MPQ scientists succeed at observing collisions in a dense beam of cold and slow dipolar molecules.

How do chemical reactions proceed at extremely low temperatures? The answer requires the investigation of molecular samples that are cold, dense, and slow at...

Im Focus: Shrinking the proton again!

Scientists from the Max Planck Institute of Quantum Optics, using high precision laser spectroscopy of atomic hydrogen, confirm the surprisingly small value of the proton radius determined from muonic hydrogen.

It was one of the breakthroughs of the year 2010: Laser spectroscopy of muonic hydrogen resulted in a value for the proton charge radius that was significantly...
