“FLUX-LMDR” intends to increase energy efficiency of transformers

The project “Technology for greater energy efficiency in distribution transformers” (FLUX-LMDR) was kicked off on 30  November 2017. Under the auspices of the Fraunhofer-Institut für Werkstoff- und Strahltechnik IWS Dresden, an alliance of five partners from science and industry will conduct research in laser processing of transformer sheets over the next three years. The application was approved by the Federal Ministry for Economy and Energy at the end of October. The Fraunhofer IWS will lead the technological development as well as take part in systems engineering.

Super-efficient – High-performance laser coated hydraulic cylinder rods

A higher laser beam cladding performance benefits Bosch Rexroth at the Dutch location Boxtel. The Fraunhofer-Institut für Werkstoff- und Strahltechnik IWS Dresden mutually optimized an industrial manufacturing process with the producer of drive and control engineering. For this purpose the IWS scientists upgraded an existing plasma powder welding machine. This way, large hydraulic cylinder rods can be coated considerably faster. Prof. Dr. Eckhard Beyer, managing director of Fraunhofer IWS, and Bernd Bodenstedt, Technical Plant Manager, Bosch Rexroth Boxtel, officially inaugurated the process.
