K 2022

2In October the Convention Center Düsseldorf will open its doors the trade fair for plastic K. This year's event will put in the forefront sustainability, circular economy, climate protection and digitalization. The majority of producers presents their novelties on news conferences during summer months, which will attract also many Slovenian experts at the trade fair.

Development of friction stir welding technology for the manufacturing of heat exchanger from 5083 aluminium alloy

5In heat exchanger manufacturing are often used aluminium allow components produced with die-casting, which needs to be joint and must provide a sealed connection. Welding of aluminium die-casted components is very demanding, since there are lubricants and air pockets in the castings, which make it difficult to weld and make tight joints. Friction stir welding is a technology that enables successful joining of die-casted components.

• PIM components for the automotive sector
• Fully automated line for the manufacturing of sanitary seals
• New granulate ULTEM 3473

• Laser welding on the field - time and cost saving
• Markforged acquired Digital Metal
• Major European automotive company added two SLM AM machines to its production line.



Engineers build LEGO-like artificial intelligence chip

3MIT engineers made a chip for artificial intelligence with the possibility of reshaping. The chip is made of alternate layer elements for the detection and processing with the ability to communicate with each other. The new design is stackable and reconfigurable, for swapping out and building on existing sensors and neural network processors. This represents a step towards a modular vison in the design of stackable and reconfigurable artificial intelligence chip that resembles LEGO bricks.
