TÜV NORD and Fraunhofer IFF Present Cyber Inspection

07.04.2015

Industry 4.0 is turning manufacturing facilities into complex cyber-physical systems that interconnect mechanical objects with embedded software over the Internet. Digital technologies are also changing traditional testing and certification. At the Hannover Messe, TÜV NORD and the Fraunhofer IFF will be presenting an exhibit of a mobile assistance system for the inspection of industrial plants.

Digital technologies such as mobile assistance systems, virtual engineering and augmented reality have many benefits for technical inspection. To this end, TÜV NORD is collaborating with the Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation IFF in Magdeburg.

The research institute uses these technologies to develop systems solutions for smart work systems; TÜV NORD is contributing its expertise in the inspection of complex industrial plants. The strategic objective of their collaboration is to develop innovative technologies for TÜV NORD’s service portfolio and to employ them in concrete applications.

The partners are presently collaborating in a pilot project. The experts intend to use mobile assistance systems in the future for inspection services during so-called cyber inspection.

TÜV NORD and the Fraunhofer IFF will be exhibiting mobile assistance systems for the operation and inspection of industrial plants at this year’s Hannover Messe. The approximately two by on meter exhibit presents a model manufacturing line.

Anyone using a tablet and the proper software to view the plant will receive pertinent information, e.g. checklists, condition data or the last inspection report, superimposed on particular components as augmented reality.

“Mobile assistance systems could be used for inspections of different technical facilities in industry as well as for wind turbines or elevators. We are pooling our know-how with the Fraunhofer IFF to test concrete applications,” says Dr. Dalibor Jerinic, Innovation Manager at TÜV NORD.

A second exhibit at the booth will present a 3D print of a damaged pipeline. TÜV NORD has developed an innovative system that simulates and evaluates damage in pipelines. It is used to better plan and to replace defective sections of pipeline more cost effectively.

What is more, India is the official partner country of the 2015 Hannover Messe. TÜV NORD GROUP’s subsidiary TÜV India has been working in the growing market there for twenty-five years.

TÜV NORD and Fraunhofer IFF at Hannover Messe: April 13 to 17, 2015; Hall 27, Booth H41.

Im Focus: Designing Architecture with Solar Building Envelopes

Among the general public, solar thermal energy is currently associated with dark blue, rectangular collectors on building roofs. Technologies are needed for aesthetically high quality architecture which offer the architect more room for manoeuvre when it comes to low- and plus-energy buildings. With the “ArKol” project, researchers at Fraunhofer ISE together with partners are currently developing two façade collectors for solar thermal energy generation, which permit a high degree of design flexibility: a strip collector for opaque façade sections and a solar thermal blind for transparent sections. The current state of the two developments will be presented at the BAU 2017 trade fair.

As part of the “ArKol – development of architecturally highly integrated façade collectors with heat pipes” project, Fraunhofer ISE together with its partners...

Im Focus: How to inflate a hardened concrete shell with a weight of 80 t

At TU Wien, an alternative for resource intensive formwork for the construction of concrete domes was developed. It is now used in a test dome for the Austrian Federal Railways Infrastructure (ÖBB Infrastruktur).

Concrete shells are efficient structures, but not very resource efficient. The formwork for the construction of concrete domes alone requires a high amount of...

Im Focus: Bacterial Pac Man molecule snaps at sugar

Many pathogens use certain sugar compounds from their host to help conceal themselves against the immune system. Scientists at the University of Bonn have now, in cooperation with researchers at the University of York in the United Kingdom, analyzed the dynamics of a bacterial molecule that is involved in this process. They demonstrate that the protein grabs onto the sugar molecule with a Pac Man-like chewing motion and holds it until it can be used. Their results could help design therapeutics that could make the protein poorer at grabbing and holding and hence compromise the pathogen in the host. The study has now been published in “Biophysical Journal”.

The cells of the mouth, nose and intestinal mucosa produce large quantities of a chemical called sialic acid. Many bacteria possess a special transport system...

Im Focus: Repairing defects in fiber-reinforced plastics more efficiently

Fiber-reinforced plastics (FRP) are frequently used in the aeronautic and automobile industry. However, the repair of workpieces made of these composite materials is often less profitable than exchanging the part. In order to increase the lifetime of FRP parts and to make them more eco-efficient, the Laser Zentrum Hannover e.V. (LZH) and the Apodius GmbH want to combine a new measuring device for fiber layer orientation with an innovative laser-based repair process.

Defects in FRP pieces may be production or operation-related. Whether or not repair is cost-effective depends on the geometry of the defective area, the tools...
