Design Thinking - shaping the future of piezo technology

With the workshop "PIEZOCERAMIC INNOVATION - SMARTLY DONE" we started a new smart3- project called Smart Co-Creation. About 50 international participants from industry and research discussed with us about new production technologies for piezoceramic materials, open innovations and ways to open up new markets for piezoceramic solutions.

If you are interested to be directly involved into the devolopment of the design thinking methodology to support piezoceramic applications, please contact for further consideration.

Thank you for participation

We are looking back on three days of inspiring discussions and high-level lectures at the 7th International Symposium on Piezocomposite Applications ISPA in Dresden. Thank you very much for your participation and engagement as speaker, exhibitor as well as interested participant. You helped to create a stimulating atmosphere and to make ISPA to an excellent platform for knowledge exchange. Many thanks go to Smart Material and NASA Langley Research Center for their support! More than 65 participants and 7 exhibitors from 9 countries formed the ISPA 2017 community.

See you 2019 !

WINDFORCE 2017 – 13. WAB Offshore-wind energy conference

Continuous monitoring of welded joints and corrosion

One highlight will be the demonstration of the sensor ring, developed at Fraunhofer IKTS, on a pipe node. The measuring system for monitoring welded joints on cylindrical bodies works with special ultrasonic waves, which detect flank and binding errors. As the system remains permanently on the structure, cyclic safety tests are possible more quickly.
