Heraeus Noblelight, presents together with German Aerospace Center (Deutsches Zentrum für Luft- und Raumfahrt; DLR) its breakthrough humm3® heating technology for composite materials from 12 to 14 March 2019 at JEC World in Paris – the leading European composites trade fair.
humm3 technology is at the heart of the test facility at DLR in Stade, Germany. Since 2017 research has been ongoing with new composite materials for space and aircraft structures.
The aim of the collaboration between Heraeus Noblelight and DLR is, to establish a powerful, controllable and safe heat source for industrial manufacturing processes of composite materials such as Automated Tape Laying (ATL) and Automated Fibre Placement (AFP).
Humm3 optimizes industrial manufacturing of composite materials
The results of trials show the high level of control over a wide range of temperatures that can be achieved using humm3®. The suitability of humm3® in terms of performance and safety for large-scale industrial integration has been proved.
The Xenon technology has been developed by Heraeus Noblelight (Cambridge, UK) and branded humm3® heating technology is compact, scalable and controllable.
The main advantages are: rapid uniform heating, equivalent to a laser; a high levels of control; scalable heating zone sizes, from narrow to 300mm and beyond; and enhanced safety which makes enclosing the layup process unnecessary.
Heraeus Noblelight is exhibiting in the UK pavilion at JEC Paris (Hall 6A Booth S50), please visit us to find out more about our humm3 technology. DLR are also exhibiting at JEC Paris (Hall 5A Booth E67) where there will be a humm3 head module on display.

Adjusting the thermal conductivity of materials is one of the challenges nanoscience is currently facing. Together with colleagues from the Netherlands and Spain, researchers from the University of Basel have shown that the atomic vibrations that determine heat generation in nanowires can be controlled through the arrangement of atoms alone. The scientists will publish the results shortly in the journal Nano Letters.
In the electronics and computer industry, components are becoming ever smaller and more powerful. However, there are problems with the heat generation. It is...

Scientists at the University Würzburg and University Hospital of Würzburg found that megakaryocytes act as “bouncers” and thus modulate bone marrow niche properties and cell migration dynamics. The study was published in July in the Journal “Haematologica”.
Hematopoiesis is the process of forming blood cells, which occurs predominantly in the bone marrow. The bone marrow produces all types of blood cells: red...
For some phenomena in quantum many-body physics several competing theories exist. But which of them describes a quantum phenomenon best? A team of researchers from the Technical University of Munich (TUM) and Harvard University in the United States has now successfully deployed artificial neural networks for image analysis of quantum systems.
Is that a dog or a cat? Such a classification is a prime example of machine learning: artificial neural networks can be trained to analyze images by looking...
An international research group led by scientists from the University of Bayreuth has produced a previously unknown material: Rhenium nitride pernitride. Thanks to combining properties that were previously considered incompatible, it looks set to become highly attractive for technological applications. Indeed, it is a super-hard metallic conductor that can withstand extremely high pressures like a diamond. A process now developed in Bayreuth opens up the possibility of producing rhenium nitride pernitride and other technologically interesting materials in sufficiently large quantity for their properties characterisation. The new findings are presented in "Nature Communications".
The possibility of finding a compound that was metallically conductive, super-hard, and ultra-incompressible was long considered unlikely in science. It was...
