With the C-Touch & Display Expo, one of the best-known exhibitions for display and touch screen production is on the trade fair calendar: For three days from 11 to 13 October, innovative materials and technologies will be the focus of interest for experts at the Shenzhen World Convention and Exhibition Center. Mahlo GmbH + Co. KG (Saal a.d. Donau, Germany) will present solutions for improved production processes with the help of quality measurement at booth A98 in hall 8.
The coating of flexible substrates such as ultra-thin glass or web with functional layers is highly efficient thanks to the use of roll-to-roll (R2R) technologies. Crucial for plant operators and ultimately for the price is the coating thickness homogeneity and thus also the electrical properties of the applied coatings for a high and above all constant yield without rejects. Until now, the electrical properties of the coating could only be determined and analysed at defined measuring points. Within the joint project KODOS – Fabricated Thin Glass Composite for Optoelectronic Systems (funding reference 13N14607), funded by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, an integrable solution for in-line process monitoring and mapping of process parameters was developed with the project partner SURAGUS GmbH at Fraunhofer FEP in Dresden, Germany.
Signostium, a Swedish frontrunner in facility management solutions, develops digital door and information-signs, powered by Epishine's (Linköping, Sweden) market leading printed solar cells. This technology not only streamlines administration and management processes but also aligns seamlessly with Signostium's mission to pioneer a more sustainable and efficient way of distributing information in facilities.
ams OSRAM (Premstätten, Austria), a global leader in intelligent sensors and emitters, received notice of substantial public funding by the German federal government (i.e. the Federal Ministry for Economic Affairs and Climate Action) and the Free State of Bavaria. The funding is intended to boost the further development of semiconductor technology. The envisaged IPCEI funding (Important Project of Common European Interest) will support ams OSRAM in making its own investments in the research and development of innovative optoelectronic components at its Regensburg location.
As the world gradually shifts towards autonomous driving, safety and reliability become even more important. LiDAR (Light Detection and Ranging) has emerged as a key technology for advanced driver assistance systems (ADAS). Its ability to improve safety by providing real-time 3D object detection through laser beam time-of-flight measurements has garnered significant interest in the automotive industry.
