CAFAC-BAJOLET now offers a new service to help companies develop the use of rubber products across the whole of the railway industry, with the focus on fire-resistant product lines. The French company has been a specialist in the transformation of elastomers for transport industry manufacturers for 50 years. CAFAC showcased its know-how at the Innotrans trade fair in Berlin in September.
A high capacity for innovation makes CAFAC one of the leading fire-resistant rubber manufacturers in the market, particularly for rail applications. The rubber products serve as fireguards on train, by keeping flames from spreading from one compartment to the next. CAFAC represents an important link in the safety chain with obstacle detection or the use of sensors that make joints intelligent. The French specialist company is committed to providing the highest-value joint solutions in terms of investment and results.
CAFAC has all the traditional means of transforming rubber at its disposal. The company also has a sound engineering department with a proven track-record, which is the only way to effectively manage the diversity and complexity of the products manufactured. In addition to water-tightness and fire-proofing applications, CAFACs products can be used for bracing materials, motor connections, vibration filters, shock absorbers, braking applications, protection against harmful substances in the environment, deflection of electrical charges, and as pipelines to transport liquids.

In a recent publication in the renowned journal Optica, scientists of Leibniz-Institute of Photonic Technology (Leibniz IPHT) in Jena showed that they can accurately control the optical properties of liquid-core fiber lasers and therefore their spectral band width by temperature and pressure tuning.
Already last year, the researchers provided experimental proof of a new dynamic of hybrid solitons– temporally and spectrally stationary light waves resulting...

Moving into its fourth decade, AchemAsia is setting out for new horizons: The International Expo and Innovation Forum for Sustainable Chemical Production will take place from 21-23 May 2019 in Shanghai, China. With an updated event profile, the eleventh edition focusses on topics that are especially relevant for the Chinese process industry, putting a strong emphasis on sustainability and innovation.
Founded in 1989 as a spin-off of ACHEMA to cater to the needs of China’s then developing industry, AchemAsia has since grown into a platform where the latest...
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.
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...
