Automated machining in manufacturing of blow moulds

5Blomix blow moulds are used worldwide. The Dutch company meets the challenge of delivering the highest quality while remaining flexible and economical – with the help of automated 5-axis machining centres from Hermle.

Intelligent solutions for efficient, automated plastic de-flashing

2To further optimize product quality, productivity and manufacturing capacity, a leading supplier of injection-molded plastic components decided to decommission its existing shot blast machines and replace them with new ones. The company chose de-flashing solutions from Rösler: A RWS 1200 system that can be easily integrated into manufacturing cells and allows the consistent, automatic de-flashing of single work pieces.

BAM uses face recognition algorithms to improve environmental balance of electric batteries

8Lithium-ion batteries are becoming increasingly powerful, but are particularly susceptible to ageing processes. These processes have to be better understood at the atomic level in order to use the batteries in a more sustainable manner. The Federal Institute for Materials Research and Development BAM developed an innovative method that uses face recognition algorithms to define ageing of lithium-ion batteries.

The truth about biodegradable hydraulic oils

4This is a complex and still not well-known field, since there is no generally accepted definition of hydraulic oils biodegradability. We understand the meaning of biodegradability. It addresses substances that can digested or consumed by micro-organisms present in water, air or soil, without any damage to vegetation or organisms and free of toxic residues.
