Flowering lavender fields could soon be seen on the Swabian Alb. When essential oil is produced from the plant, large quantities of residual materials are produced. The DITF are researching how to use them to produce fibers for textiles.
Professor Michael Doser was an important communicator and driving force at DITF for 32 years. He was particularly committed to the development and expansion of the biomedical engineering research area.
Detect defects already during the production process and prevent rejects: The DITF are developing a global "Industry 4.0 approach" for process management that already begins with yarn production and extends along all process chains.
Not only leg fractures and ligament strains are currently in season. Serious cuts are also a danger in skiing accidents. Cut-resistant ski undergarment protects against these. The DITF carry out material tests for the FIS.
