Artificial mini organisms instead of animal testing

Everyone wants medication – we’re not talking about animal testing here. Up to now, this has been a necessary evil in medical research. Microphysiological systems, in which organs and organ systems are “created” are a promising alternative. Therewith, complex mechanisms of the human body can be realistically analyzed. Among other things, these microsystems contain ducts, reservoirs, actuating elements, sensor technology and 3D scaffols “made by laser”. The Fraunhofer IWS offers partners from the fields of biology and medicine complete solutions for microsystem technology – from design to prototype, including the automation system.

New energy-efficient technology to produce carbon fibers

Dresden researchers of the Fraunhofer IWS and the TU Dresden have developed a new energy-efficient process chain for carbon fiber manufacturing. The approach aims at the conversion of polyacrylonitrile (PAN) procurser fibers by means of their stabilization, carbonization and graphitization. Thereby, in future it will be possible to produce carbon fibers at clearly lower costs.

Dresdner scientists print tomorrow’s world

The Fraunhofer IWS Dresden and Technische Universität Dresden inaugurated their jointly operated Center for Additive Manufacturing Dresden (AMCD) with a festive ceremony on February 7, 2017. Scientists from various disciplines perform research on materials, additive manufacturing processes and innovative technologies, which build up components in a layer by layer process. This technology opens up new horizons for component design and combinations of functions. For example during fabrication, electrical conductors and sensors are already able to be additively manufactured into components. They provide information about stress conditions of a product during operation.
