Company profile

7 Fraunhofer institutes, being engaged in complementary research areas, cooperate within the Fraunhofer Adaptronics Alliance.
These partners work together in scientific as well as in industrial research projects, according to demand. Thus, interdisciplinary solutions can be found from one source. The partners competencies cover the following areas:

Materials and components
Experimental system analysis
Numerical and experimental simulation
Electronics and control engineering
Production and processing
System design, evaluation and application

Energy Harvesting

Energy Harvesting employs ambient energy like light, thermal gradients or movement to generate electrical energy. Using thermoelectric generators or piezoelectric materials and highly-optimized voltage converters, smallest amounts of energy from the ambient can be used to power small electric devices more

Elastomer generator

By stretching the elastomer generator, electricity is generated that illuminates lamps in the model more

Smart Factory

Multifunctional thin film sensor systems directly applied onto the surface of tools and inserts enable the industry to measure load and temperature distribution in high load regions during production. Sensory tools for deep drawing and bending will be shown as well as tool inserts with heating structures more

Universal ultrasonic vibrational systems

Milling and drilling processes are enhanced by means of universal rotating-vibrational systems. A reduction of process costs and an increase of the cutting quality can be realised. The vibrational systems can be installed in any machining center. They bring an autarkic energy supply and comprise an internal more

Smart composites

The potential of smart composites is limited by unknown load profile, lack of simple strain sensors and heavy conventional actuators. This limits can be broken by means of shape memory alloys (sma) and their integration. The sma acuators can be activated by resistive heating or environmental heat. The more

Hardware-in-the-Loop interface

The application of In-the-Loop technologies in advanced test environments allows the efficient development and verification of the individual components of a mechatronic system. Adjustable and programmable mechanical interfaces accelerate the product development process by flexibly emulating mechanical more

Machining Robot Flexmatik

Flexmatik Machining Robot A robot system is designed from scratch for the needs of machining of metal and fibre composite parts. Hereby the gap between industrial robots and machine tools should be closed. The goal is to reach a patch accuracy < 0.1 mm from the first part. Considered use cases are the more

Demonstrator for activ vibration damping

The exhibit is a demonstrator for active vibration damping. It has a base point excitation which can be used to excite the demonstrator in order to simulate disturbing vibrations which, for example, act on a camera or a telescope. A counter-vibration is then induced with an actuator in order to soothe more
