Now on air: 5G research network on Aachen campus goes live

The 5G-Industry Campus Europe switched on its radio network on May 12, 2020: Through an area of almost one square kilometer, 19 antennas and a bandwidth of ten gigabits per second, we will run the largest 5G research network in Europe. The network at the RWTH Aachen Campus, which is funded by the Federal Ministry of Transport and Digital Infrastructure (BMVI), connects the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT, the Laboratory for Machine Tools and Production Engineering WZL of the RWTH Aachen University, the FIR (Institute for Industrial Management) at the RWTH Aachen University and, in the future, other University departments with the new mobile radio standard. Together, the partners at the 5G-Industry Campus Europe can now research and test in detail the areas of application of 5G in industrial use.

Fraunhofer IPT, Moss and IBF Automation build systems for the production of 50,000 surgical masks per day

Surgical masks can intercept infectious droplets that are expelled when speaking, coughing or sneezing. They may help to protect other people from being infected with respiratory tract infections if the necessary safety distance cannot be maintained. The current shortage of surgical masks is making regular healthcare provision and the fight against the corona pandemic more difficult. Therefore, the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT is now setting up a production plant for surgical masks in Germany together with the local machine builder IBF Automation GmbH on behalf of Moss GmbH.
