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.

Solar cells based on perovskite compounds could soon make electricity generation from sunlight even more efficient and cheaper. The laboratory efficiency of these perovskite solar cells already exceeds that of the well-known silicon solar cells. An international team led by Stefan Weber from the Max Planck Institute for Polymer Research (MPI-P) in Mainz has found microscopic structures in perovskite crystals that can guide the charge transport in the solar cell. Clever alignment of these "electron highways" could make perovskite solar cells even more powerful.
Solar cells convert sunlight into electricity. During this process, the electrons of the material inside the cell absorb the energy of the light....
Empa researchers have succeeded in applying aerogels to microelectronics: Aerogels based on cellulose nanofibers can effectively shield electromagnetic radiation over a wide frequency range – and they are unrivalled in terms of weight.
Electric motors and electronic devices generate electromagnetic fields that sometimes have to be shielded in order not to affect neighboring electronic...

With an X-ray experiment at the European Synchrotron ESRF in Grenoble (France), Empa researchers were able to demonstrate how well their real-time acoustic monitoring of laser weld seams works. With almost 90 percent reliability, they detected the formation of unwanted pores that impair the quality of weld seams. Thanks to a special evaluation method based on artificial intelligence (AI), the detection process is completed in just 70 milliseconds.
Laser welding is a process suitable for joining metals and thermoplastics. It has become particularly well established in highly automated production, for...
