July 2015 | Algorithms in moulding technology

, cordially welcomes you with current news from the wire and cable branch!

Evolution is one of these things: What will continue to develop and what will not? Which characteristics will stand the test, which will not? Nature works a lot with trial and error here. Evolution also plays a role in forging technology – it is a long way from a raw steel element to a finished form. And in the end, which forms turn out to be the best can very often only be found out through testing.

Engineers are assisted by computer programmes – to be exact by the so-called evolutionary algorithms. You can read about how you can calculate the optimal component preforms with computer simulations in our theme of the month: Algorithms in moulding technology.

In future, forging companies could design stage sequences significantly more quickly than before. Researchers of the Institut für Integrierte Produktion Hannover (IPH – Institute for Integrated Production Hanover) are working together with the industry on software that automatically determines the optimal preform.

Evolutionary algorithms thus support the designers in an extremely time-consuming task that, at present, is often carried out according to the principle of trial and error.

Biggest fun fair on the Rhine

Kirmes am Rhein
Each year in July, the longest-established event in the state capital of Düsseldorf, the Biggest Fun Fair on the Rhine, is staged for a whole week on the Rhine meadows in Oberkassel. This year it takes place from 17–26 July 2015. The meadows, which have an area of 165,000 sqm, will provide space for stallholders from both Germany and abroad, and a wide range of rides, guaranteeing fun for all the family. One of the highlights will be the grand fireworks display on the last day of the funfair (24 July 2015).
