Series of events “Brain Massages” – Those who go will be rewarded with knowledge!

In mid-April, the time had come: The first invitation “Brain Massages” was issued to interested female colleagues: After a short welcome by Institute Director Prof. Frank Ficker, Alexandra Luft gave a well-versed and extremely interesting tour of the “hallowed halls” of the Institute of Materials Science in Münchberg for all participants. Old and brand new looms, laboratories, very special textile machines, such as the new circular needling machine, the universal nonwoven technical center with fiber opening, carding and a wide range of bonding options could be viewed.

Carding & Co

There was also a “Stäubli TF20 double rapier weaving machine with Unival single yarn control” to see in the flesh – very impressive – and the large bridge is casually called the “penthouse”. It houses 4000 small servo motors with controls. After the creping in the old technical center, the resulting fiber pile runs over a compensating stacker and then, depending on the choice, to one of the various bonding units. The terms already picked up, such as “hydroentanglement and thermal bonding”, were thus filled with life. If you want to know more, there is also a research podcast with Prof. Claus-Ekkehard Koukal.

The new nonwovens technical center with its machines and a crane were then presented by Anne Böhm. Research and teaching are closely interlinked here.

It was particularly successful that we, as in-house university guests, were able to ask the various colleagues in the technical center questions and look over their shoulders as they did their work. They patiently explained everything – and we would like to thank them for that!

Researchers at Hof University of Applied Sciences are working on many exciting research topics and issues that we would like to introduce to other colleagues as part of the BRAIN MASSAGES. These lectures and guided tours are aimed at all employees of Hof University of Applied Sciences who, as administrative staff, do not normally hear so much about research but would still like to know what is going on here. Also invited are professors and research assistants who would like to look beyond the confines of their own research plates and exchange ideas across disciplines.

More HIRNMASSAGEN are planned until the end of June 2022, the dates can be found on the internal sharepoint and will be added continuously. For more information, please contact Christina Bartsch, Research Marketing.
