The Fraunhofer Additive Manufacturing Alliance integrates nineteen Fraunhofer institutes across Germany, which depending on their main focus, deal with subjects concerning additive manufacturing and represent the entire process chain. This includes the development, application and implementation of additive production processes as well as associated materials.

Sustainability and efficiency: the new trends driving the plastics industry

With a combined workforce of almost 300,000 employees, plastics is one of Germany’s major industrial sectors. The industry also enjoys a strong position on the international stage, due in no small part to its productive research performance. At this year’s “K” trade fair, the world’s leading industry event for plastics, a total of 11 Fraunhofer Institutes will be exhibiting innovative, sustainable and efficient concepts, developments and solutions for the plastics industry (October 16–23; booth SC01, hall 7).

Prof. Dr. Julia C. Arlinghaus will take charge of the Fraunhofer Institute IFF in Magdeburg

University professor Dr. Julia C. Arlinghaus will be taking charge of the Fraunhofer Institute for Factory Operation and Automation IFF in Magdeburg on October 1, 2019. At the same time, she will be taking up the Chair of Production Systems and Automation at Otto von Guericke University Magdeburg. Her years of expertise in the fields of digitalization, logistics, process engineering and automation as well as her active collaboration with numerous industrial companies make her the ideal appointment for both jobs. Prior to this, she held the Chair of Management for Industrie 4.0 at RWTH Aachen.

Affordable and mobile purification of dialysis water

People who suffer from end stage renal desease frequently undergo dialysis on a fixed schedule. For patients this artificial washing of the blood is a major burden. To remove toxins from the blood, large quantities of dialysis water for clearance are required. Until now there has been no solution so far to recover this dialysate cost-effectively. Therefore a cryo-purification method is being developed by Fraunhofer researchers that clears the water without loosing it. This approach not only reduces costs – it may even pave the way for a wearable artificial kidney by milder long-term dialysis treatment at complete water autonomy.

Preventing manipulation in automated face recognition

From unlocking smartphones to speeding up airport security checks: the use of automated face recognition for personal identification continues to grow. But this authentication method is vulnerable to morphing attacks: criminals can misuse it by melding two different facial images into one. A single passport featuring a photograph manipulated this way can then be used by two different people. Together with their partners, Fraunhofer research teams are developing a system that foils this type of attack using machine learning methods.
