OPAL – Optimization of Airlay Processes


In the project OPAL, supported by the German Federal Ministry of Education and Research, we seek to understand and improve the production process as well as material properties of non–woven materials which play, for example, an important role as light weight damping material in cars. For this project departments of the Fraunhofer ITWM Kaiserslautern, TU […]

Fraunhofer MINT-EC Math Talents Programme


This summer 23 students will be invited to attend the closing workshop of the Fraunhofer MINT-EC Math Talents programme in Trippstadt, Germany. MINT is the German for STEM (Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics). The MINT-EC is a network of schools in Germany with a focus on STEM. During the week-long residential workshop, the final of a series […]

Optimizing Production Processes of Nonwovens with FIDYST


Spunbond, meltblown, and airlay processes can be optimized by using FIDYST, the Fiber Dynamics Simulation Tool developed by the Department Transport Processes (TV) of the Fraunhofer ITWM in Kaiserslautern – a software that simulates fibers driven by air and their contacts with machinery parts of the plant. By evaluating the CV values of the mass regularity […]

Doing your PhD at the Fraunhofer ITWM


My name is Sebastian Osterroth and I am doing my PhD in the Department for Flow and Material Simulation (SMS) at the Fraunhofer Institute for industrial Mathematics (ITWM) in Kaiserslautern. I started my PhD in March 2014 and before that I was studying industrial mathematics at the Technical University of Kaiserslautern. As a PhD student […]

FiltEST – Filter Element Simulation Toolbox


Today’s filter elements have to meet increasing requirements concerning their operating time, filtration efficiency and dirt hold capacity. Additional aspects such as an efficient production of the devices and ecological sustainability are of growing importance when deciding about the product design and the materials involved. At the same time filter element manufacturers are confronted with […]
