Hannover Messe 2003: Gepresste Gläser mit höchster Präzision

02.04.2003


Das Fraunhofer-Institut für Produktionstechnologie IPT stellt auf der HANNOVER MESSE 2003 vom 7. bis 12. April 2003 ein neues Verfahren zum Präzisionsblankpressen optischer Komponenten aus anorganischen Gläsern vor. Auf einem Gemeinschaftsstand mit der IVAM NRW e. V. (Interessengemeinschaft zur Verbreitung von Anwendungen der Mikrostrukturtechniken) zeigt das Fraunhofer IPT in Halle 6, Stand C22, verschiedene strukturierte Glasoptiken, die mit der Abformtechnologie am Institut hergestellt wurden.



Während die klassische Fertigungskette zur direkten Herstellung hochpräziser optischer Komponenten stets die beiden Arbeitsschritte des Schleifens und des Polierens verlangte, lassen sich solche Optiken mittels Präzisionsblankpressen in einem Arbeitsgang anfertigen. Das am Fraunhofer IPT eingesetzte Verfahren verwendet dazu wiedererwärmte Glasrohlinge, die im zähplastischen Zustand unter Druck umgeformt werden.

Bereits heute fertigt das Aachener Institut auf diese Weise komplexe Geometrien (Freiformflächen) und hochwertige strukturierte Optiken mit Strukturgrößen im Mikrometerbereich. Künftige Einsatzfelder solcher Präzisionsoptiken sind beispielsweise die Mikrooptik oder die Mikrofluidik.


Das Präzisionsblankpressen mit nur einem einzigen Werkzeug spart aufwändige Nacharbeiten sowie umweltschädigende Zusatzstoffe wie Poliersuspensionen und Kühlschmiermittel. Die kostengünstige Produktion auch kleiner und mittlerer Stückzahlen macht das Verfahren somit besonders für den europäischen Markt interessant.

Im Focus: Powerful IT security for the car of the future – research alliance develops new approaches

The more electronics steer, accelerate and brake cars, the more important it is to protect them against cyber-attacks. That is why 15 partners from industry and academia will work together over the next three years on new approaches to IT security in self-driving cars. The joint project goes by the name Security For Connected, Autonomous Cars (SecForCARs) and has funding of €7.2 million from the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research. Infineon is leading the project.

Vehicles already offer diverse communication interfaces and more and more automated functions, such as distance and lane-keeping assist systems. At the same...

Im Focus: Molecular switch will facilitate the development of pioneering electro-optical devices

A research team led by physicists at the Technical University of Munich (TUM) has developed molecular nanoswitches that can be toggled between two structurally different states using an applied voltage. They can serve as the basis for a pioneering class of devices that could replace silicon-based components with organic molecules.

The development of new electronic technologies drives the incessant reduction of functional component sizes. In the context of an international collaborative...

Im Focus: LZH showcases laser material processing of tomorrow at the LASYS 2018

At the LASYS 2018, from June 5th to 7th, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) will be showcasing processes for the laser material processing of tomorrow in hall 4 at stand 4E75. With blown bomb shells the LZH will present first results of a research project on civil security.

At this year's LASYS, the LZH will exhibit light-based processes such as cutting, welding, ablation and structuring as well as additive manufacturing for...

Im Focus: Self-illuminating pixels for a new display generation

There are videos on the internet that can make one marvel at technology. For example, a smartphone is casually bent around the arm or a thin-film display is rolled in all directions and with almost every diameter. From the user's point of view, this looks fantastic. From a professional point of view, however, the question arises: Is that already possible?

At Display Week 2018, scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Polymer Research IAP will be demonstrating today’s technological possibilities and...
