Offering companies a clear competitive advantage and making them fit to meet the challenges of the production of the future: this is the performance promise that Fraunhofer IPA will be exhibiting at the automatica trade fair from June 27 to June 30, 2023.
New technologies for the disassembly of electric vehicle batteries and motors
In the “DeMoBat” research project, twelve project partners developed concepts and applications for handling and reprocessing electric car components in a sustainable and economical manner. The aim here was to avoid valuable raw materials going to waste.
Artificial Intelligence (AI) can predict and improve the desired taste, quality, or price for food products such as coffee. This is the result of a Danish-German collaboration project, in which Fraunhofer IPA tested how AI can provide computational support. The experts audited an AI application for the food industry for the first time.
Fraunhofer IPA has been using its Automation Potential Analysis for assembly automation worldwide for several years already. This technology is now also available for welding processes. It provides companies with a sound basis for deciding if and where previously manual welding processes could potentially be automated.
Fraunhofer IPA and Siemens AG in Karlsruhe operate the “Matrixproduktion im Fluss” (matrix production in flow) lab. The aim is a comprehensive transformation of the manufacturing structure into matrix production. In an interview, the two project leaders provide insights into their work to date.
For matrix production to function optimally, a whole fleet of mobile robots is needed. Ants serve as a role model for orchestrating this dynamic interaction as efficiently as possible. Agha Ali Haider Qizilbash from the Robot and Assistive Systems department gives an insight into his research work.
Products that use artificial intelligence (AI) must be developed in accordance with the law and deliver comprehensible results. An audit conducted by Fraunhofer IPA has now confirmed these properties for a product from Experian – the “Fraud Miner” as part of a fraud prevention solution.
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 companies ARBURG and Balluff, Fraunhofer IPA has achieved a breakthrough.
