Extrusion — Werkzeugauslegung für die Extrusion
ID
873308
Start date
06 Apr 2017
Location
Essen, Germany
Abstract
Generell gibt es einen starken Trend zum Einsatz von Berechnungs- und Simulationsprogrammen bei der Auslegung von Werkzeugen. Das liegt zum einen an dem zunehmenden Termindruck, dem hohen Kosten- und Zeitaufwand für den Prototypenbau und zum anderen an dem Zwang zu Leistungssteigerungen und/oder Gewichtsreduzierungen der oft aus Erfahrung gewachsenen Extrusionswerkzeuge. Der weitgefächerte Einsatz von sogenannten Simulationsprogrammen, vor allem von Programmen auf der Basis der Finite-Elemente-Methode (FEM) und numerischer Methoden der Netzwerktheorie, sollen dazu beitragen, Entwicklungszeiten zu reduzieren, die Zahl von Entwicklungsiterationen zu minimieren und im Sinne eines präventiven Qualitätsmanagements Fehlentwicklungen zu vermeiden. In diesem Sinne soll die Veranstaltung zunächst ein Gefühl für die in der Kunststoffverarbeitung strömenden Medien geben. Auf Basis dieser rheologischen Grundlagen werden die heute in der Forschung und Praxis eingesetzten Methoden zur Auslegung von Extrusionswerkzeugen aufgezeigt. Die praktische Umsetzung erfolgt an Breitschlitz- und Rohrwerkzeugen. Hier werden, nach einer kurzen Erläuterung zur Berechnungsgrundlage, an realen Beispielen die Auswirkungen einzelner Verfahrens- und Geometrieparameter durchgespielt und diskutiert. Zum Schluss können in einem Workshop eigene Konstruktionen durchgerechnet werden.

Abstract
The packaged food industry is the fifth-largest sector in India. The Indian packaged food industry is worth US$39.7 billion and is expected to reach US$65.41 billion by 2020. India is one of the largest markets for packaged food in the world, just behind the US, China, Brazil and Mexico, and the second-largest in Asia. There are different types of packaging — paper, tin, plastics and glass. Globally, 42% of packaging is done in plastics as they are temper-proof and there are less chances of adulteration.

Wind Turbine Blade Manufacture 2017
ID
875882
Dates
12 Dec 2017 - 14 Dec 2017
Location
Dusseldorf, Germany
Abstract
The world continues moving towards a new era in renewable power technologies. Massive megawatt wind turbines are playing a key part in the current success of sustainable energy as they facilitate a continuous reduction of cost of wind energy. If long term reliability can be ensured then the costs of power generation are further reduced due to a lack of down time. There are now wind farms that are several decades old, providing vital information on durability and efficiency of power conversion for new plant development. Environmental factors represent the biggest hazard to structures, starting with lightning strikes, icing weighing down the rotor, erosion of blades caused by rain or sand in deserts, and salt water spray contact in offshore installations. AMI’s Wind Turbine Blade Manufacture 2017 conference examines the manufacturing and performance of wind blade composites for large windmills. There are challenges to be overcome in production such as bringing in cost-effective automation and speeding up manufacturing, as well as developing inspection technologies for quality control both in the factory and at the installation site of the turbine. Longer blades are coming on to the market to raise power generation capability and some companies are choosing to develop modular structures for ease of transportation. This is a global marketplace with suppliers going where the demand is greatest.
