Quality assurance:”random-sample measurements often no longer suffice”

The German-language scientific periodical “Bild der Wissenschaft” has described Prof. Gisela Lanza as the “120-per-cent woman”, because for four years she worked simultaneously as the first incumbent of the Shared Professorship of “Global Production Engineering and Quality” at the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and at the automaker Daimler.

A window on the production operations of tomorrow

The EMO Hannover 2017 is exploring new approaches for strengthening mutual feedback between the academic and business communities. In line with the EMO’s motto of “Connecting systems for intelligent production”, the German Machine Tool Builders’ Association (VDW) is therefore organising the Industry 4.0. Special Show area, on which Fraunhofer and university-affiliated research institutes of the German Academic Society for Production Engineering (WGP) will be showcasing the latest advances in networked production technology. Besides the WGP (a grouping of leading German mechanical engineering professors), representatives of the industrial sector will be showing what solutions they have already implemented in practical form. In an accompanying presentation forum, eminent academics will be elucidating their latest research results, and firms will be spotlighting their competences in regard to the smart factory concept.

Start-ups in the limelight at the EMO Hannover 2017

For the first time, there will be a special stand themed around “Start-ups for intelligent production” at the EMO Hannover 2017, the world’s premier trade fair for the metalworking sector, to be held from 18 to 23 September.
