Active Wiper Die - Prevention of wrinkles in pipe bending
The invention relates to bending tools for tube bending,
including a mandrel. Wrinkles frequently form on the inside of the bend, especially for pipes with thin walls and narrow bend radii. These wrinkles even occur when a bending mandrel is inserted into the pipe to support the bend. The thinner the pipe wall and the smaller the bend radius in relation to the pipe diameter, the greater the fold formation.
Bending process can now be actively influenced using the newly invented tool. It has been proved that fold formation
during the bending process can be effectively inhibited as a result of the invention. The overrun of material on the inside of the pipe bend is halted (prevented) by a specially
developed tool with a bead.

For the first time, a team of researchers at the Max-Planck Institute (MPI) for Polymer Research in Mainz, Germany, has succeeded in making an integrated circuit (IC) from just a monolayer of a semiconducting polymer via a bottom-up, self-assembly approach.
In the self-assembly process, the semiconducting polymer arranges itself into an ordered monolayer in a transistor. The transistors are binary switches used...
Breakthrough provides a new concept of the design of molecular motors, sensors and electricity generators at nanoscale
Researchers from the Institute of Organic Chemistry and Biochemistry of the CAS (IOCB Prague), Institute of Physics of the CAS (IP CAS) and Palacký University...
For photographers and scientists, lenses are lifesavers. They reflect and refract light, making possible the imaging systems that drive discovery through the microscope and preserve history through cameras.
But today's glass-based lenses are bulky and resist miniaturization. Next-generation technologies, such as ultrathin cameras or tiny microscopes, require...
Scientists from the University of Zurich have succeeded for the first time in tracking individual stem cells and their neuronal progeny over months within the intact adult brain. This study sheds light on how new neurons are produced throughout life.
The generation of new nerve cells was once thought to taper off at the end of embryonic development. However, recent research has shown that the adult brain...
Theoretical physicists propose to use negative interference to control heat flow in quantum devices. Study published in Physical Review Letters
Quantum computer parts are sensitive and need to be cooled to very low temperatures. Their tiny size makes them particularly susceptible to a temperature...
