Demands on a modern plaster

Plasters are found in virtually every home first-aid kit. They are available in all shapes and colors and in many different materials, such as fabrics or synthetics. Some plasters have a strong bond and some can be removed easily, while others have additional functions such as antibacterial properties, padding, absorption of wound secretions or for Read more about Demands on a modern plaster[…]

Satellite Navigation Mass: GPS, Galileo, Glonass and Badiou and the technical consequences for tracking purposes in maritime market

Satellite locating is the simple answer to the question: Where am I or my object? Years ago it was unthinkable to get an own position by a “satellite navigation technology”. The first navigation satellite was launched to the orbit on February 22nd 1978. But today, almost 40 years later, it is totally different. GNSS (Global Read more about Satellite Navigation Mass: GPS, Galileo, Glonass and Badiou and the technical consequences for tracking purposes in maritime market[…]

Thick Aluminum Layers for Assembly and Packaging Technology

Within a public funded project (AioLi BMBF-FKZ: 16ES0329K), the Fraunhofer ENAS developed a deposition process of thick aluminum layers on various substrates, like silicon, printed circuit board or ceramics. Due to the negative standard potential of aluminum, the electrodeposition is carried out in an ionic liquid instead of water-based electrolytes. With this method, it is Read more about Thick Aluminum Layers for Assembly and Packaging Technology[…]

Electric cars: Optimal temperature with Combicore

The optimum operating temperature of a component determines its efficiency and service life. For example, the range of electric cars drops rapidly in colder temperatures, sometimes by up to 50 percent. There are also problems with charging the batteries. On the other hand, if it is too hot, batteries age faster. Combicore casting cores efficiently Read more about Electric cars: Optimal temperature with Combicore[…]

Combicore cores revolutionize die casting and other casting processes

Undercuts are hardly possible in high pressure die casting. New technologies require new cooling concepts and a consequent lightweight construction. In high pressure die casting ducts for cooling or oil are traditionally realized by sliders or drilling afterwards. However, such cavities are bound to straight axes. Sand cores that are known from other casting processes Read more about Combicore cores revolutionize die casting and other casting processes[…]

All-round hygienic solutions for the meat industry

In the food industry, production plants must be designed with hygienic aspects in mind. Depending on the hygiene zone, the requirements of the splash, packaging and non-food zones vary widely. At the IFFA, the leading international trade fair for the meat industry, Rittal will be presenting system solutions for enclosure, power distribution and climate control Read more about All-round hygienic solutions for the meat industry[…]

DYNAFORCE – the ideal touch operation for metal fronts

We are already accustomed to using touch to trigger functions. The Algra Group’s DYNAFORCE input technology, however, makes it possible to apply touch functionality to metal, wood or exotic materials such as ceramic. A gentle touch of the keys creates a slight deformation in the material layer, which is used by a sensor network made Read more about DYNAFORCE – the ideal touch operation for metal fronts[…]
