The Hydrogen Factory of the Future: Know-How for Industry and Transportation

Hall 16, Booth C18 | Cooperative Booth of Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft

More sustainable industrial manufacturing and greener transportation with greater use of renewables and lower carbon emissions – businesses are aiming for this in the future. Hydrogen provides a green opportunity to supply industry with power, heat and transportation– only when the hydrogen is being produced with renewables, though. The Fraunhofer IFF’s solution makes distributed and demand-driven green production of hydrogen possible.

The Fraunhofer IFF’s solution with demand-driven and systemically integrated hydrogen systems takes advantage of green hydrogen’s great potential and is an important step on the way to carbon-neutral manufacturing and corporate energy transitions.

Computer Aided Safety

Hall 6, Booth A26 | Cooperative Booth of Fraunhofer Group for Production

Fraunhofer IFF presents Computer-Aided Safety (CAS), a new generation of tools for designing applications featuring Human-Robot Collaboration (HRC). As an add-on embedded into third-party simulation software for manufacturing, CAS simplifies the implementation of complex safety requirements for HRC. New design functions and interactive elements guide the application engineer through the corresponding safety limits for their application and streamline the entire process from layout to the final installation. Experience a new way to simplify robot safety.

The tactile sensor system developed at the Fraunhofer IFF can be integrated in different grippers. The sensors’ spatial and force resolution makes it possible to detect objects’ presence as well as their position and even slippage in a gripper. Adaptive gripping strategies that build upon this permit adapting and optimizing processes responsively, gripping fragile objects sensitively, and classifying unidentified objects.
