Two researchers from the Leibniz Institute DSMZ are among the most cited scientists in the world

This year, Assistant Professor Dr Markus Göker and Dr Jan Meier-Kolthoff from the Leibniz Institute DSMZ-German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures GmbH in Braunschweig, Germany, are again among the world’s most cited scientists termed „Highly Cited Researchers“ (HCR). Scientists usually cite the most important work previously published on the topic in their papers. This makes the total number of citations of a paper a primary indicator of the quality of the research behind it. The two bioinformaticians from Braunschweig, Germany, are on the 2022 list, published on November 15th…

Perfect surface finishes for products made with additive manufacturing

Mass finishing and coating of small components in rotary drums At the Formnext exhibition 2022 Walther Trowal presents two surface treatment technologies: Mass finishing and coating of small components in rotary drums. In the AM post process machine the surface of 3D printed components is refined by deburring, smoothing or polishing; in the Rotamat coater the component surface is coated with lacquer materials. In one single operation the AM post process machine, model A2, eliminates the high surface roughness that is typical for 3D printed components. Usually such rough surfaces…

24/7 inline, on site and in situ material analysis using LIBS

The laser-based system enables continuous inline material control of bulk minerals without previous sample preparation. SECOPTA will debut its new mineralLIBS for automated inline material monitoring and positive material identification (PMI). The system enables powder, fine as well as coarse-grained industrial minerals such as quartz, feldspar or limestone to be measured directly on the conveyor belt quickly, precisely, continuously, with long-term stability and in 24/7 operation. LIBS (Laser Induced Breakdown Spectroscopy) systems analyze the chemical composition of materials. During the measurement, a plasma is generated by a laser beam and…
