3D-printed sensors

In 3D-printing, up to now, the integration of electronic components and consequently, the production of customized sensors has presented a challenge. Now, together with the Baden-Württemberg-based companies ARBURG and Balluff, Fraunhofer IPA has achieved a breakthrough.



SCHOOLPLATE: Free study outlines initial findings

There are not enough qualified staff for Thailand's electroplating industry. Therefore, the research project “SCHOOLPLATE” aims to establish apprenticeships and further training programmes in this emerging south-east Asian market. A recent study has now outlined the initial findings.



Stereotactic systems from the 3D printer

Stereotactic systems are special devices used in neurosurgical procedures. Until now, conventional production methods have meant that these devices are not only expensive to manufacture, but are also geometrically limited. However, in conjunction with inomed Medizintechnik GmbH, a research team from Fraunhofer IPA has now found a way of manufacturing stereotactic systems from plastic using a 3D printer.



Mastering Artificial Intelligence

In most cases, artificial intelligence has a black-box character. However, it is only through transparency that trust can be built. Specialized software is available in order to explain different AI models. Now, a study by Fraunhofer IPA has compared and evaluated various methods, which explain machine learning approaches.
