Global rail companies continue to face growing challenges to build and maintain trains faster and at lower costs. Striving for engineering and design excellence, strict material and functionality regulations in the rail industry add additional levels of complexity to producing new or spare rail parts. In order to meet industry requirements, Europe’s leading transport companies – Bombardier Transportation, Deutsche Bahn ESG and Siemens Mobility – have all invested in additive manufacturing technology. In this interview, experts from these companies each provide their insights into the rail industry’s inherent production challenges and how their adoption of additive manufacturing helps to address them.
Cognex introduces the world’s first industrial smart camera powered by Deep Learning software. This combination expands the possibilities of what can be successfully and precisely inspected in factory automation.
Testing 5G NR products requires new T&M approaches, as devices will use a much higher bandwidth, and active antennas make over-the-air (OTA) measurements compulsory. To successfully fulfil and surpass these complex requirements, Rohde & Schwarz has created an innovative portfolio for 5G NR device test solutions. For developers of 5G devices, Rohde & Schwarz features the R&S CMX500 radio communication tester enabling non-standalone (NSA) and standalone (SA) signaling tests now in both FR1 and FR2 frequency ranges.
It goes without saying that the bicycle is a part of locomotion culture in Germany. 97 percent of people in Germany can ride a bike. They use bicycles not only for bike tours in their free time but also on a daily basis for shopping or commuting to work. Due to rising petrol costs and the constantly congested roads at peak times, residents of large cities in particular see the bicycle as a true alternative to the automobile. FAULHABER drives are installed here in various components.
What is going on in the neighbourhood? We all want to know, whether we admit it or not. Applied to the whole of humanity and Earth, the question is: What is going on in the Milky Way? We know surprisingly little about this, because we literally have a hard time seeing the wood for the trees. But the MOONS project initiated by British astronomers aims to change this. Technology from FAULHABER will play an important role.
