Efficient welding of small batch sizes without programming effort

Quick and easy welding of single parts – particularly in steel and metal construction, the programming expenditure for automated welding of small batch sizes is often disproportionally high. With the IRPS Instant Robot Programming System users create programs for automated welding in a short time. So the automated welding of workpieces in batch size 1 Read more about Efficient welding of small batch sizes without programming effort[…]

EU plastics projects join forces – “multiplier effect” to boost circular economy in Europe

Nineteen innovation projects joined forces today to boost European Union efforts towards a circular economy for plastics. The ‘Plastics Circularity Multiplier’ group will communicate to policy makers, the public and industry on a range of EU-funded innovations – innovations that aim to bring plastic materials into the circular economy of the future and create new Read more about EU plastics projects join forces – “multiplier effect” to boost circular economy in Europe[…]

CREAToR project: a Europe-wide consortium aims to create a circular economy by removing hazardous flame retardants from plastic waste and re-using the purified material in high-value application

High volumes of plastic waste – for example from construction and demolition, aeronautics and electronics – pose a huge economic and environmental challenge. While the best option would be to recycle and reuse, the cost of collecting, sorting and purifying these materials is often too high, so they are disposed of via combustion or landfill, Read more about CREAToR project: a Europe-wide consortium aims to create a circular economy by removing hazardous flame retardants from plastic waste and re-using the purified material in high-value application[…]

Fraunhofer LBF and BAM develop faster procedure for flame-retardant plastics

Many modern plastic materials do not come without added flame protection. When developing new plastic compositions of this kind, the aim is to achieve an optimum combination of flame retardancy, processability and mechanical properties. Scientists from the Fraunhofer Institute for Structural Durability and System Reliability LBF and the Bundesanstalt für Materialforschung und –prüfung (BAM) have Read more about Fraunhofer LBF and BAM develop faster procedure for flame-retardant plastics[…]

Flamingo Light Sheet Microscopes rely on Motion Systems from PI

For the ambitious Flamingo light sheet microscopy project of the research lab around Prof. Jan Huisken at the Morgridge Institute for Research (Madison, WI), Physik Instrumente (PI) supplies linear and rotary stages. These are used for positioning and moving samples in the microscopes. Dr. Thomas Bocher, Head of Segment Marketing Life Science & Microscopy at Read more about Flamingo Light Sheet Microscopes rely on Motion Systems from PI[…]

‘Turkish’ signature to dark factories of Europe

Tezmaksan, Turkey representative of German Röders company and Mitsubishi Germany, attends EMO Hannover Fair with two new products that are designed and produced by themselves. Cubebox product, which will be promoted for the first time at the fair, allows factories to work without an operator for 24 hours. Kapasitematik ensures machines to talk with operators Read more about ‘Turkish’ signature to dark factories of Europe[…]

CERN Signs Three Contracts with Hamamatsu Photonics for ATLAS and CMS HL-LHC Upgrades

CERN is a large multidisciplinary organisation that requires a wide range of goods and services in order to construct and operate its accelerators, detectors and computing facilities. Procurement contracts with CERN often entail the development of state-of-the-art solutions, challenging companies to innovate and supply novel technologies. When the LHC was originally approved, the already unprecedented Read more about CERN Signs Three Contracts with Hamamatsu Photonics for ATLAS and CMS HL-LHC Upgrades[…]

Cooperation of ROWASOL with KraussMaffei Extrusion, OPM Mechatronic and ColVisTec at K 2019

Liquid colors for plastic coloring need not be molten before processing and can therefore be injected further downstream in the process, bringing great advantages with respect to color change time and material consumption. At booth C24-27 of KraussMaffei Extrusion GmbH, Hannover, at this year’s K Trade Fair in Düsseldorf, Germany, they will showcase this capability Read more about Cooperation of ROWASOL with KraussMaffei Extrusion, OPM Mechatronic and ColVisTec at K 2019[…]

Hyperloop 4.0 – the journey continued

In 2013, Elon Musk, the founder of SpaceX, PayPal and Tesla, introduced the Hyperloop – an innovative transportation concept consisting of a high-speed train "fired" through a tube. At present, our future mobility needs and environmental protection requirements are no longer being met. The aim of the new transport system is to link major cities.
