Setting the pace in the age of digital production

Sustainable, autonomous, intelligent, clean: From self-learning robots for use
in fields and factories to state-of-the-art cleanroom technologies, methods
for explaining machine learning and software tools for optimized production – Fraunhofer IPA will be showcasing a wealth of applications and services for
automated production at automatica from 21 to 24 June 2022.



Massive Open Online Course for optimized patient care

At OTWorld, the largest international trade fair with a specialist congress for
manufacturers, retailers and service providers in the modern supply of prosthetics an orthotics, researchers are presenting an online course for interdisciplinary patient care. An international pilot project has shone a light on how rehab support for leg amputees can be improved.



Fuel cells set to substitute diesel generators

Diesel generators often provide the local power supply in developing and emerging economies – emitting millions of tons of greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. To minimize these emissions in the future, a research team from Fraunhofer IPA, together with CBC GmbH & Co. KG and the University of Bayreuth, is currently developing an electricity generator that runs on hydrogen.



Electrolyzers set to become mass products

If you want to use hydrogen as a sustainable source of energy, you need electrolyzers. However, they are rare and expensive because they are still largely manufactured by hand. To enable them to be produced on an industrial scale in the future, a research team at Fraunhofer IPA is currently developing a fully automated electrolyzer factory.
