Insects supply chitin as a raw material for the textile industry

Harmful chemicals are often used in textile processing. That is why the Fraunhofer Institute for Interfacial Engineering and Biotechnology IGB is researching harmless biobased alternatives. The Institute is working on utilizing side streams from the animal feed manufacture for the production of chitosan. The biopolymer is supposed to be used as a sizing agent in the processing of yarns or for the functionalization of textiles. Fraunhofer IGB will present its work at the ACHEMA trade fair from June 11 – 15 in Frankfurt am Main.

Chitin is a major component of insect skins and shells; large quantities of it result from the production of animal feed – ever since the feed industry has...

Cebit 2018: Computer scientists provide fifth dimension for videos

With its almost infinite depth of field, so-called light field photography has been fascinating amateur photographers since commercial cameras have been on the market. It offers the possibility to change the focus range of the selected image section after it is taken, and to produce three-dimensional images. For video, light field photography is used only sporadically so far, in part because the necessary camera systems exist only at a handful of institutions. For a few days, Saarland University is one of them.

Researchers will be presenting images and details of their self-developed system at stand G75 in hall 27 of the computer fair Cebit, which will take place in...

Cebit 2018: Legal Informatics Experts Develop Secure Data Spaces for Lawyers and SMEs

The exchange of information between lawyers and clients is protected by law. Whenever unencrypted e-mails are sent, however, this protection is undermined. And even with encryption in place, it is still possible to draw conclusions about who is communicating with whom, which should also be confidential, of course. Christoph Sorge, Juris Endowed Professor for Legal Informatics at the Saarland University, has been examining the matter. His team recently developed a web-based software system that protects the communication of lawyers and enterprises from third parties.

The Saarbrücken researchers will be presenting their software, “Mavora”, at the computer fair Cebit, taking place in Hannover from June 11 to 15 (Hall 27,...

Fraunhofer at the Compounding World Expo 2018: Plastic Recycling and Intelligent Monitoring of Industrial Processes 4.0

Upcycling of PET bottles and the recycling of flame-retardant plastics are worthwhile both for economic reasons and for protecting the environment. Fraunhofer LBF will present current research results at the Compounding World Expo 2018 in Essen, from June 27 to June 28, at booth 707. Another topics will be new procedures in process technology, under the keyword Industry 4.0. A monitoring system that is based on intelligent sensor nodes, for example for a twin-screw extruder, ensures that networked, autonomous work processes run reliably. With another patented procedure, the corrosiveness of plastic melts can be determined quickly, which also helps to prevent downtime in the future.

Plastics are conquering the earth - unfortunately not always to the earth’s advantage, as indicated by the increasing reports on plastic waste. Two studies by...

Achema 2018: Researchers improve globule formation for pharmaceutical capsules

Many pharmaceuticals have the form of capsules in which there are globules that contain the active substance. Researchers at the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern (TUK) together with their colleagues from the Technische Universität Dortmund look into the production process of those globules. They use a so-called spheronizer that forms the globules. The researchers are working to improve this process and are investigating the parameters that might support globule formation. Therefore, they also use computer simulation.

During the Achema, a trade fair for the process industries in Frankfurt, they are presenting this technology at the research stand of the federal state...

Achema 2018: Researchers take a closer look at drops using 3D high-speed camera technology

At a lotus leaf, drops simply roll off, but a concrete wall is wetted by them. The reason for this lies in the condition of the surface. Tiny structures are the reason for drops not to adhere to the surface. Researchers at the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern (TUK) are investigating this effect using a 3D high-speed camera system. This helps them to see what happens when drops hit difference surfaces. The findings could help to reduce machine wear and tear or to keep plants free of contamination.

Achema 2018: New camera system monitors distillation and helps save energy

In order to separate chemical mixtures into their single components, industry operators commonly carry out energy-intensive distillation, such as in crude oil refineries. Researchers at the Technische Universität Kaiserslautern (TUK) are developing a camera system that monitors this process. It measures whether there is a high degree of droplet formation, which can negatively affect the separation of components. In the future, this technology could take countermeasures whenever the relevant measurement data change – and can also save energy.

At Achema, the exhibition on process technology in Frankfurt, they will be presenting the technology at the research stand of the state of Rhineland-Palatinate...

Im Focus: First real-time test of Li-Fi utilization for the industrial Internet of Things

The BMBF-funded OWICELLS project was successfully completed with a final presentation at the BMW plant in Munich. The presentation demonstrated a Li-Fi communication with a mobile robot, while the robot carried out usual production processes (welding, moving and testing parts) in a 5x5m² production cell. The robust, optical wireless transmission is based on spatial diversity; in other words, data is sent and received simultaneously by several LEDs and several photodiodes. The system can transmit data at more than 100 Mbit/s and five milliseconds latency.

Modern production technologies in the automobile industry must become more flexible in order to fulfil individual customer requirements.

Im Focus: Sharp images with flexible fibers

An international team of scientists has discovered a new way to transfer image information through multimodal fibers with almost no distortion - even if the fiber is bent. The results of the study, to which scientist from the Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology Jena (Leibniz IPHT) contributed, were published on 6thJune in the highly-cited journal Physical Review Letters.

Endoscopes allow doctors to see into a patient’s body like through a keyhole. Typically, the images are transmitted via a bundle of several hundreds of optical...

Im Focus: Water is not the same as water

Water molecules exist in two different forms with almost identical physical properties. For the first time, researchers have succeeded in separating the two forms to show that they can exhibit different chemical reactivities. These results were reported by researchers from the University of Basel and their colleagues in Hamburg in the scientific journal Nature Communications.

From a chemical perspective, water is a molecule in which a single oxygen atom is linked to two hydrogen atoms. It is less well known that water exists in two...
