A this year’s EuroMold, which takes place in Frankfurt from November 25-28, 2014, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will for the first time present its new SLM machine design and exposure concept. This solution makes it easy to scale productivity and building space at significantly lower cost than previous machine designs allowed.
Additive manufacturing via selective laser melting (SLM) has been successfully used to make prototypes and small-series production runs of predominantly...13.11.2014 | Read more
Countries like Malaysia, Vietnam or Thailand are still lagging behind significantly in health care. Consequently, the coming years will see investments focus on the medical technology field. This means optimal conditions for German enterprises that aim to expand their operations and secure a foothold in the Asian market. For this, Singapore is especially suitable: its official language is English, its infrastructure is of a British-European character and its geographical location facilitates travel to all ASEAN member states via short flights.
Medical Manufacturing Asia in Singapore
In September 2014, Medical Manufacturing Asia took place in Singapore, a medical technology exhibition that attracts...
Fraunhofer FIT demonstrates a mobile wireless system that monitors the health of elderly people in their own homes, using miniature sensors. Besides non-invasive sensors this platform integrates technology to take a blood sample and to determine specific markers in the patient's blood. At its core is the home unit, a compact device located in the patient's home. It incorporates the necessary software as well as sensors and the analytical equipment. Visit us at MEDICA, November 12 – 15, 2014, Hall 10, booth G05.
For years, cardiac diseases have been the most important cause of death globally. Mobile assistance systems that monitor vital parameters, e.g. blood pressure...04.11.2014 | Read more
Fiber-reinforced materials, which can be formed by the application of heat and thereby adapted to meet individual requirements, have enormous potential for medical engineering.
The use of thermoplastic materials for such composites has opened up new options for manufacturing parts such as adaptable micro-implants for neurosurgery or...27.10.2014 | Read more
COMPAMED has become an established international marketplace for suppliers of medical manufacturing. The trade show, which takes place every November and is co-located to MEDICA in Dusseldorf, has been steadily growing over the past years and shows that medical technology remains a rapidly growing market.
The joint pavilion organized by IVAM Microtechnology Network, the Product Market “High-tech for Medical Devices”, is located in Hall 8a. After receiving a...21.10.2014 | Read more
Thin-film coatings impart new properties to glass in applications as diverse as window glazing, solar cells and touchscreens. With the Megatron® sputtering system, it is now possible for the first time to vary the materials in these coatings in any way and to produce entirely new coatings with improved surface quality. The researchers will be presenting the Megatron® at the glasstec trade fair in Düsseldorf from October 21 to 24 (Hall 15, Booth A33).
When it’s frosty outside and cozy and warm indoors, a little bit of heat always escapes through the windows. Triple glazing is intended to keep as much of the...07.10.2014 | Read more
Whether on baby bottles, beer mugs or perfume bottles, imprints on glass consist mainly of lead oxide. Fraunhofer researchers have developed printing inks for glass that do not contain any toxic elements. At the glasstec tradefair from October 21st to 24th in Düsseldorf, they are going to present the new imprints (Hall 15, Booth A33).
The perfume bottles seem almost like little works of art: made of stained glass, elegantly formed and decorated with imprints. But the decorative graphics and...07.10.2014 | Read more
Scientists from the Alfred Wegener Institute, Helmholtz Centre for Polar and Marine Research (AWI) have identified a possible source of carbon dioxide (CO2) and other greenhouse gases that were abruptly released to the atmosphere in large quantities around 14,600 years ago.
According to this new interpretation, the CO2 – released during the onset of the Bølling/Allerød warm period – presumably had their origin in thawing Arctic...
Small volcanic eruptions might eject more of an atmosphere-cooling gas into Earth’s upper atmosphere than previously thought, potentially contributing to the recent slowdown in global warming, according to a new study.
Scientists have long known that volcanoes can cool the atmosphere, mainly by means of sulfur dioxide gas that eruptions expel. Droplets of sulfuric acid that...
For the first time, scientists have vividly mapped the shapes and textures of high-order modes of Brownian motions--in this case, the collective macroscopic movement of molecules in microdisk resonators--researchers at Case Western Reserve University report.
The new technology holds promise for multimodal sensing and signal processing, and to develop optical coding for computing and other information-processing...
Since the 1850's scientists have known that crystalline materials are organized into fourteen different basic lattice structures. However, a team of researchers from Vanderbilt University and Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) now reports that it has discovered an entirely new form of crystalline order that simultaneously exhibits both crystal and polycrystalline properties, which they describe as "interlaced crystals."
Writing in the Nov. 14 issue of the journal Nature Communications, the researchers describe finding this unusual arrangement of atoms while studying...
UCSB physicists demonstrate the high level of controllability needed to explore ideas in quantum simulations
While the Martinis Lab at UC Santa Barbara has been focusing on quantum computation, former postdoctoral fellow Pedram Roushan and several colleagues have been...
