From April 25-29, 2016, HANNOVER MESSE again presents the latest industrial trends and innovative technologies along the entire value chain. The special area “Industrial Supply” mainly focuses on wide-ranging suppliers' solutions across all industries. It takes place in the halls 4-6.
Future-oriented technological trends for the suppliers industry will be presented at the IVAM Product Market “Micro, Nano & Materials” in hall 6. The IVAM Microtechnology Network will pool the “Key Enabling Technologies” like micro- and nanotechnology at the traditional joint pavilion.
The exhibitors on-site showcase microcomponents, microstructures, sensor systems, intelligent laser processing tools and highly precise 3D measurement technology as well as energy harvesting and nanotechnology applications.
Duropan GmbH presents a thermal photovoltaic system (TPV), a hybrid system that combines thermovoltaic technology cohesively with photovoltaic technology. This system, consisting of a thermal transmitter (fluid flowed through support plate as a thermal diffuser, thermal barrier with embedded thermoelectric generators, thermal accumulator), will be cohesively positioned on the surface of silicon solar cells.
Fraunhofer Institute for Electronic Nano Systems ENAS shows components and smart systems for Industry 4.0 at HANNOVER MESSE 2016. In addition to high-precision micro sensors and actuators as well as components for condition monitoring of engines, spectrometer for the optical monitoring and analyses of substances are introduced.
Due to the specific reflection and absorption characteristics, most of the substances can be detected and analyzed quantitatively based on their wavelength spectrum. For many years, Fraunhofer ENAS together with partners has been developing appropriate efficient and miniaturized spectral sensors such as the tunable infrared filter.
The Institute of Dynamics and Vibration Research (IDS) of Gottfried Wilhelm Leibniz Universität Hannover offers demonstrators, services and solutions in areas of application like contact mechanics and friction, non-linear dynamics, piezo and ultrasound technology. The IDS focuses on modelling, simulation and experimental investigations of vibration-related topics as well as dynamic phenomena with friction and contact. In addition to working on fundamental aspects, IDS also offers the analysis of application-oriented tasks on behalf of industrial research associations and individual companies.
For more than 68 years, LEE Hydraulische Miniaturkomponenten GmbH has been a leading supplier of high-precision, miniature hydraulic components. THE LEE COMPANY was founded by Leighton Lee II in 1948. One of his many inventions was the LEEPLUG expansion plug. This innovation opened up new perspectives in the construction of manifolds for hydraulic systems in aircraft, engines and many other high-tech hydraulic systems. Further developments are non-return valves, precision apertures and sieves for industrial use. Because of the precision and quality of these products, they are also used in medical technology as well as in machine engineering and tool construction and in general industrial applications.
Micrometal GmbH presents etching in high volumes, according to customers’ specifications. The most complex product shapes can be etched out of metal with tightest tolerances. Design options for photo etched parts are almost unlimited at Micrometal, as wet etching processes give far more freedom than alternative technologies like stamping, electro-forming or laser cutting. Tolerances in the single-digit micron range can be achieved for high volume metal parts. Typical etched parts are filters, screens, grids, pins, contacts, diffusers, encoder discs, blades, functional surfaces, etc.
Multiphoton Optics GmbH sells 3D lithography equipment with major focus on manufacturing of optical packages and supplies a process that automates high-precision opto-electronics assembly and allows interconnecting optical components, silicon or III/V photonic chips. Multiphoton Optics' first stand-alone equipment platform LithoProf3D was launched in February 2015. The equipment is available for standard 3D structuring jobs and sophisticated work flows with selectable exposure strategies – 3D printing from the sub-100 nanometer to the centimeter scale with highest precision for photonic and biomedical products.
The Berlin Adlershof Science City is one of the most successful high-technology sites in Germany. It is home to over 1,000 companies and scientific institutions on an area of 4.2 km² - embedded in an integrated urban planning concept. 15,931 people work and 6,235 study here. The Science and Technology Park is at the heart of the Adlershof Science City. It encompasses 478 companies and ten non-university research institutes. They focus on photonics and optics, renewable energies and photovoltaics, microsystems and materials, IT and media, biotechnology and environment as well as analytics.

More and more automobile companies are focusing on body parts made of carbon fiber reinforced plastics (CFRP). However, manufacturing and repair costs must be further reduced in order to make CFRP more economical in use. Together with the Volkswagen AG and five other partners in the project HolQueSt 3D, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) has developed laser processes for the automatic trimming, drilling and repair of three-dimensional components.
Automated manufacturing processes are the basis for ultimately establishing the series production of CFRP components. In the project HolQueSt 3D, the LZH has...
Reflecting the structure of composites found in nature and the ancient world, researchers at the University of Illinois at Urbana-Champaign have synthesized thin carbon nanotube (CNT) textiles that exhibit both high electrical conductivity and a level of toughness that is about fifty times higher than copper films, currently used in electronics.
"The structural robustness of thin metal films has significant importance for the reliable operation of smart skin and flexible electronics including...
The nearby, giant radio galaxy M87 hosts a supermassive black hole (BH) and is well-known for its bright jet dominating the spectrum over ten orders of magnitude in frequency. Due to its proximity, jet prominence, and the large black hole mass, M87 is the best laboratory for investigating the formation, acceleration, and collimation of relativistic jets. A research team led by Silke Britzen from the Max Planck Institute for Radio Astronomy in Bonn, Germany, has found strong indication for turbulent processes connecting the accretion disk and the jet of that galaxy providing insights into the longstanding problem of the origin of astrophysical jets.
Supermassive black holes form some of the most enigmatic phenomena in astrophysics. Their enormous energy output is supposed to be generated by the...
The probability to find a certain number of photons inside a laser pulse usually corresponds to a classical distribution of independent events, the so-called...
Microprocessors based on atomically thin materials hold the promise of the evolution of traditional processors as well as new applications in the field of flexible electronics. Now, a TU Wien research team led by Thomas Müller has made a breakthrough in this field as part of an ongoing research project.
Two-dimensional materials, or 2D materials for short, are extremely versatile, although – or often more precisely because – they are made up of just one or a...
