Important information about the cooperation with the Fraunhofer IPT

The welfare of all employees, as well as professional support and care, but also the safety of our business partners are extremely important to us, especially with regard to the CoViD-19 pandemic. Nevertheless, maintaining the Fraunhofer IPT's ability to work and the ongoing maintenance of all existing projects and contracts continues to play a very important role - of course taking into account the safety of all parties involved. For this reason, we would like to inform you briefly about the current situation at our institute and the measures we have taken.

Integrated Solutions for Production

 

Industries – Technologies – Products

In our business units we use the wide expertise of our departments and provide comprehensive solutions to our customers for the following industries, technology fields and product groups:

 

Trends in Production

We encounter production trends such as Industrie 4.0 or additive manufacturing with a consistently connection of technology and process kow-how, adaptive processes and process chains as well as a a profound technology understanding for the high-performance production.

 

Research and Development for Industry

In our four departments, we work out the basics and further develop competencies with which we transfer our research work into industrially applicable production technologies.

The Recipe for Success: Our Employees

We regard the promotion and education of young scientists as one of our main tasks.

5G technology for more reliable real-time communication between machines, plants and cloud systems thanks to Time Sensitive Networking

Being able to reliably and safely control and regulate highly dynamic production systems still appears to be a challenge for many companies. Edge and cloud systems are gaining in importance, but even today there is still a lack of appropriate equipment and infrastructure to permanently integrate existing machines and plants into digital IT landscapes in accordance with the necessary industrial requirements. To this end, the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT in Aachen, together with partners from mechanical engineering, network technology and robotics, is now developing an end-to-end real-time-capable communication infrastructure based on 5G mobile technology and the Time Sensitive Networking (TSN).

Individualized cancer therapy soon to be faster and more effective thanks to artificial intelligence

The treatment of cancer with new, individualized cell therapies is usually very costly and lengthy. Before treatment can take place, patients often have to wait a long time for individualized therapeutics to be produced and they lose valuable time. In the EU project AIDPATH, researchers are now developing a facility for the production of so-called CAR-T cells that is capable of integrating patient-related data and biomarkers into the therapy process via artificial intelligence. The CAR-T cells are produced close to the patient, directly in the hospital. In the future, this will make it possible to provide cancer patients with treatment tailored to their needs and much more quickly.

5G sensor technology for collision control protects machine tools and components

Complex production processes in highly flexible and networked manufacturing systems require all processes and distributed systems to be able to exchange their data extremely reliably and with only short delay times. For this so-called "Ultra Reliable and Low Latency Communication" (URLLC), the 3rd Generation Partnership Project (3GPP), a worldwide cooperation for the standardization of mobile communication technologies, is developing a new standard for future 5G products. The Fraunhofer-Institute for Production Technology IPT and the Swedish mobile communications supplier Ericsson are now testing the envisaged URLLC functions in Aachen using a real production scenario for collision control in machine tools.
