If the throughput height fits, the nitrogen consumption fits

Reducing nitrogen consumption in convection soldering with Rehm Thermal Systems‘ patented mechatronic curtain Due to the variety of electronic component geometries, the assembly height varies from 5 to 30 mm. These differences lead to the requirement that the throughput height in a convection soldering system be specified at 30 mm upwards and 20 mm downwards. Additionally, due to e-mobility, there is also a need for throughput heights of 50 to 100 mm upwards. This requirement results in an increasing open area at the entrance and exit of the convection soldering…

Cancer research: scientists from DSMZ characterize breast cancer cell lines

Results enable research on better breast cancer treatment options Cell lines are an important in vitro model in breast cancer research. A team around biochemist Dr. Sonja Eberth and bioinformatician Dr. Claudia Pommerenke from the Leibniz Institute DSMZ-German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures GmbH (Braunschweig, Germany) has extensively characterized the molecular properties of the breast cancer cell lines from the institute’s collection. The results of the study, recently published in the renowned journal Cells, allow the individual breast cancer cell lines to be assigned to the known clinically relevant…

ACHEMA 2024: Multifaceted lecture programme for the process industry

ACHEMA 2024 will once again fully integrate the lecture and supporting programme with the exhibition. In 2022, ACHEMA integrated the congress and the so-called Innovation Stages into the exhibition for the first time. Due to the positive feedback, the concept will be continued this year. In total, more than 750 presentations await visitors in the lecture halls and on the stages in the exhibition. „Science and Industry in Dialogue has always been DECHEMA’s credo and since the last ACHEMA it has also been a living practice in the lecture and…

The mass finishing technology refines surfaces gently and efficiently

At the MACH 2024 exhibition Walther Trowal displays its equipment for finishing the surface of high-value components. This versatile technology is equally suitable for deburring, edge radiusing, general cleaning, surface smoothing and high-gloss polishing. In addition, the company presents a centrifuge for eco-friendly cleaning and recycling of the process water. For finishing the surface of small, mass-produced parts Walther Trowal shows a centrifugal disk finishing machine of the model range TT. This so-called „double-batch“ system allows the processing of one work piece batch, while a second work piece batch is…

New Rotamat system for coating sealing components for E-vehicles

At the PaintExpo Walther Trowal introduces its new Rotamat R 100 system for coating elastomer sealing components with anti-friction and decorative lacquers. The new coater can handle work piece batches, which are three times bigger than the batches processed in its largest predecessor model. One reason for developing this new machine was that numerous job shop coating companies requested a system that can handle large batches of big, flat sealing components. An important application for the Rotamat systems is the coating of O-rings and flat gaskets, for example, for sealing…

German scientists report success in antibiotic research

German Researcher at the DSMZ in Braunschweig develops new method for the derivatization of antibiotics Professor Dr Yvonne Mast, Head of the Department of Bioresources for Bioeconomy and Health Research, and her working group at the Leibniz Institute DSMZ-German Collection of Microorganisms and Cell Cultures have developed a new method for the derivatization of antibiotics. Antibiotics are medicinally important compounds often produced by microorganisms. Such natural substances often have a chemically complex structure and hence can be difficult or even impossible to chemically synthesize or modify by means of semi-synthesis.…
