Plasma nozzle applied coatings
These coatings offer protection against rust, scratches and moisture and improve adhesion: Surfaces with a nano coating. A new plasma process enables these coatings to be applied more easily and cost-efficiently on an industrial scale.
Lubrication without oil?
Running nicely this applies even more to aqueous biopolymer solutions than to oil. These solutions are used as a cooling lubricant for machining hard metals and for tool-making machinery on which tools are manufactured.
Graphene boosts efficiency of next-gen solar cells
The coolest new nanomaterial of the 21st century could boost the efficiency of the next generation of solar panels, a team of Michigan Technological University materials scientists has discovered.
Contact-free analysis of chemical substances
Is it drugs, medicines or explosives? At the Analytica trade fair, Fraunhofer researchers, joined by the Hubner Company, are presenting a terahertz spectrometer that provides reliable, contact-free identification of substances.
Mass Production with Carbon-Fiber-Reinforced Plastics CRP
Cars and airplanes need to lose weight and one way to do that is to produce as many of the components as possible using carbon-fiber-reinforced plastics CRP. Up until now, these components have been made by hand. Today, there are automated production methods that are also suitable for volume production in carmaking.
Ball bearings set to help with fuel efficiency in hybrid vehicles
Because of a more efficient integration of the engine and electric motor, which in turn has encouraged a culture of lowering fuel consumption and fuel emissions, the demand for hybrid vehicles has dramatically increased in recent years.
Mobile ultrasound scanner detects defects in ship propellers
Ship propellers are as large as a single-family home and manufacturing them is quite a challenge. During the casting process, pores and miniscule cracks can form that in the worst case may cause a blade to break. Now these massive components can be inspected for defects in a non-invasive manner, using a new kind of ultrasound process.
Thin layer ceramic coatings innovation
Producing thin ceramic components has until now been a laborious and expensive process, as parts often get distorted during manufacture and have to be discarded as waste.
Charging your batteries - without the cord!
Cell phones and flashlights operate by battery without trouble. Yet because of the limited lifespan, battery power is not a feasible option for many applications in the fields of medicine or test engineering, such as implants or probes.
Optimizing networks by simulation
By the year 2020, thousands of kilometers of new grids will be operating in Germany to permit even more extensive use of power from renewable sources. However, these new "smart grids" also come with increased complexity, costs and vulnerability.
