“Fibre-reinforced polymer composites in automobile manufacturing – challenges for the future” is the title of the opening lecture to be given by Dr. Olaf Täger from the Volkswagen Group’s Research Department at the 13th Chemnitz Textile Technology Conference (CTT).
The international conference dedicated to the issue of “Value Creation Opportunities with Textile Technology” will take place at Chemnitz University of Technology on 14 and 15 March 2012.
Other lecturers at the plenary sessions will include Prof. Dr. Chokri Cherif from Dresden University of Technology and Prof. Lothar Kroll from Chemnitz University of Technology, who will speak on “Developing manufacturing technologies suitable for use in large-scale production environments for complex fibre-reinforced polymer composite components”; they will illustrate the need for action in order to fully exploit the lightweight design potential of textiles and fibre-reinforced polymer composites.
More than 50 speakers in all will present the latest expertise from industrial companies and research institutes. The subject areas are “Resource Efficient Machines and Processes”, “Finishing and Functionalization”, “Process and Structure Simulation”, “Procedures for Process Controls and Tests,” “Semi-Finished Products and Preform Technologies” and “Composites in Lightweight Design”.The 13th Chemnitz Textile Technology Conference therefore provides a cross-sector platform for presenting results and sharing experiences related to the complementary process stages in various manufacturing chains. www.chemtextiles.de

From June 25th to 27th 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Digital Media Technology IDMT in Ilmenau (Germany) will be presenting a new solution for acoustic quality inspection allowing contact-free, non-destructive testing of manufactured parts and components. The method which has reached Technology Readiness Level 6 already, is currently being successfully tested in practical use together with a number of industrial partners.
Reducing machine downtime, manufacturing defects, and excessive scrap
The quality of additively manufactured components depends not only on the manufacturing process, but also on the inline process control. The process control ensures a reliable coating process because it detects deviations from the target geometry immediately. At LASER World of PHOTONICS 2019, the Fraunhofer Institute for Laser Technology ILT will be demonstrating how well bi-directional sensor technology can already be used for Laser Material Deposition (LMD) in combination with commercial optics at booth A2.431.
Fraunhofer ILT has been developing optical sensor technology specifically for production measurement technology for around 10 years. In particular, its »bd-1«...
The well-known representation of chemical elements is just one example of how objects can be arranged and classified
The periodic table of elements that most chemistry books depict is only one special case. This tabular overview of the chemical elements, which goes back to...
Light can be used not only to measure materials’ properties, but also to change them. Especially interesting are those cases in which the function of a material can be modified, such as its ability to conduct electricity or to store information in its magnetic state. A team led by Andrea Cavalleri from the Max Planck Institute for the Structure and Dynamics of Matter in Hamburg used terahertz frequency light pulses to transform a non-ferroelectric material into a ferroelectric one.
Ferroelectricity is a state in which the constituent lattice “looks” in one specific direction, forming a macroscopic electrical polarisation. The ability to...
Researchers at TU Graz calculate the most accurate gravity field determination of the Earth using 1.16 billion satellite measurements. This yields valuable knowledge for climate research.
The Earth’s gravity fluctuates from place to place. Geodesists use this phenomenon to observe geodynamic and climatological processes. Using...
