Breakthrough technology from Heraeus Noblelight for aerospace

12.03.2019

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 humm3® has proved itself to be an excellent heating technology for fast and controllable dry fibre lay-up.

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.

Im Focus: The moiré patterns of three layers change the electronic properties of graphene

Combining an atomically thin graphene and a boron nitride layer at a slightly rotated angle changes their electrical properties. Physicists at the University of Basel have now shown for the first time the combination with a third layer can result in new material properties also in a three-layer sandwich of carbon and boron nitride. This significantly increases the number of potential synthetic materials, report the researchers in the scientific journal Nano Letters.

Last year, researchers in the US caused a big stir when they showed that rotating two stacked graphene layers by a “magical” angle of 1.1 degrees turns...
