Predictive Maintenance in Energy- and Systems-Engineering

‘Predictive Maintenance’ functioning as an add-on to what’s known as ‘Condition Monitoring’, is becoming more and more common in our modern Industrial Era 4.0.



Reactive Sputter Deposition RSD

The International Conference on reactive Sputter Deposition RSD offers a platform for scientists, engineers and students to discuss the newest developments in the field of Sputterdesosition.


Fraunhofer LBF

Multifunctional design of lightweight structures for satellite application

Conventional satellite design usually separates between structural and non-structural functions. The primary structure mainly supports mechanical loads and provides attachement points to the subsystems.


Fraunhofer IEM

Force-sensitive shape memory alloy gripper

The wire offers a wide range  of applications, requires little space and is cost-effective. The material is also characterized by a very high energy density.


Fraunhofer IWU

Sensotool with integrated cutting force and temperature measurement

Modern manufacturing processes are characterized by an increasing degree of complexity. Smallest deviations of individual parameters can lead to the destablization of the whole process.


Fraunhofer LBF

Mechanical Simulation in Matlab®

Fraunhofer LBF developed several toolboxes for Matlab/Simulink® to minimize the risk of errors in modeling and to perform efficient and simple simulations. They can be requestet for testing.
