Press Release / Research News / 1.3.2022

CT Analysis of Concrete Beams

Concrete’s properties as a material have made it an essential part of today’s construction methods. Alongside its many advantages, however, this universal favorite has its share of drawbacks – the most prominent being that its heterogeneous nature makes it difficult to dimension components and structures on the basis of simulations. Now, our researchers are developing analysis software designed for computed tomography.


Textil Network Article / 12.1.2022

Virtual Quality Inspection for Filter Nonwovens

[Only available in German]

Nonwoven production received more public attention than ever, because the technical textile is crucial for infection control. The ultra-fine nonwoven products are produced in meltblown processes. An team of the Fraunhofer ITWM is optimizing the entire production chain in the ProQuIV project.


New Project


In the SynosIs project, we are working with our research partners to develop an inspection system based on artificial intelligence (AI) that detects defects on surfaces quickly and automatically.


Wood Species Identification Using AI

In the research project, we are developing automatic image recognition systems for determining wood species using artificial intelligence in cooperation with the Thünen Institute for Wood Research in Hamburg.
