Powered-up plastics

Until now, it has not been possible to additively manufacture sensors and other electronic devices in a single operation. However, a research team from the Fraunhofer Institute for Manufacturing Engineering and Automation IPA has now succeeded in doing just that. The key to this achievement? Conductive plastics.



Biointelligent sensor for measuring viral activity

Today, genome editing is almost as easy as programming software. However, the generation of viral vectors as initial material is still associated with many expensive and error-prone handling procedures. A new method is needed that simplifies and optimizes these processes.



Digitization to conserve resources

A research team at the Center for Digitized Battery Cell Production at Fraunhofer IPA has investigated how digitization of manufacturing can not only optimize production processes and save materials and energy, but also extend battery service life.
