Process Engineering

This special field revolves around processes for modifying material properties (milling, cooling), composition (filtration, distillation) and type (oxidation, hydration).

Valuable information is available on a broad range of technologies including material separation, laser processes, measuring techniques and robot engineering in addition to testing methods and coating and materials analysis processes.

Researchers develop new combined process for 3D printing

Chemists at Martin Luther University Halle-Wittenberg (MLU) have developed a way to integrate liquids directly into materials during the 3D printing process. This allows, for example, active medical agents to…

Precious metal-free silicone curing

Sustainable processes could replace valuable metals in silicone crosslinking. Silicones are tried and tested in the private and professional domains. In many applications, however, expensive precious metals are required as…

Drying fruit with ionic wind

After the summer harvest, fruits are sold as dried products suitable for the current season. However, if fruit or vegetables are dried with heat, nutrients can be destroyed and flavors…

Laser welding processes for martensitic chromium steels ensure a future safe from collisions

Martensitic chromium steels are one of the steel grades with a future, steels that are ideal for automotive applications since they are both lightweight and corrosion resistant. These materials are…

A molecular tool to change the structure of a metal surface

Nano-scientists at Münster University develop a molecular tool to change the structure of a metal surface. Researchers at the University of Münster have now developed a molecular tool which makes…

New Laser-Based Contacting Process Developed for Solar Cells

C3PO Project The Fraunhofer Institute for Solar Energy Systems ISE has developed an alternative process for producing solar cell contacts. The laser transfer and firing (LTF) technique offers several advantages…

ScanCut project completed: laser cutting enables more intricate plug connector designs

Plug connectors are tiny and, at first glance, unremarkable – yet modern vehicles would be unable to function without them. Several thousand plug connectors…

Analyzing pros and cons of two composite manufacturing methods

“Frontal polymerization doesn't use an autoclave at all, so it doesn't require that huge upfront investment,” said Bliss Professor Philippe Geubelle in the…

New NMR method enables monitoring of chemical reactions in metal containers

Nuclear magnetic resonance (NMR) is employed in a wide range of applications. In chemistry, nuclear magnetic resonance spectroscopy is in standard use for the…

Roll-to-roll processes: Network R2RNet bundles expertise for the continuous functionalization of surfaces

In the R2RNet network, founded on June 10, 2020, 21 European partners from industry, research organizations and universities are pooling their expertise in the…
