Mass production of individualized products

How can mass production methods be applied to individualized products? One answer is to use a combination of digital manufacturing technologies, for example by integrating digital printing and laser processing into traditional manufacturing processes. This paves the way for in-line product customization. Six Fraunhofer institutes have pooled their expertise to take the new process to the next level.

A smarter way of building with mobile robots

Researchers are working with a mobile robotic platform called Husky A200 that could be used for autonomous logistic tasks on construction sites. This mobile robot is one of many projects pursued by the Fraunhofer Italia Innovation Engineering Center to advance the cause of digitalization in construction and bridge the gap between robotics and the building industry. Researchers at this center based in Bolzano, Italy, are developing a software interface that will enable mobile robots to find their way around in construction sites.

Perfect optics through light scattering

Innovative technologies are the key to tackling some of society’s key challenges – and many of these technologies have an optical system at their core. Examples include semiconductor lithography systems designed to create ever-smaller and more energy-efficient microchips, satellite-based high-resolution earth observation systems, and basic research in the field of gravitational-wave detection. In the realm of optics, however, even the tiniest imperfections can lead to scattered light, which causes a reduction in contrast and a lower light yield. Today’s optical systems therefore rely on optimized design and comprehensive inspection of the complete surface of optical components. To achieve this, the Fraunhofer Institute for Applied Optics and Precision Engineering IOF is developing light scattering measurement techniques that can detect unwanted scattered light.
