From now on you can calculate - with our software WIAM® fatigue RIFEST - strength assessments for machine components according to the extensive updated 7th edition of the FKM guideline. Shortly before the end of the year 2020, we were able to publish the news about the complete revision of the FKM guideline. The revision was carried out under our leadership and with the cooperation of the coauthors from TU Clausthal, TU Darmstadt, HTW Dresden and Fraunhofer IWM Freiburg. But also by the technical support and discussion within the FKM expert group "component strength".

Although no rocket launches are taking place in our test hall at Dresden Airport, Ariane 6 assemblies have landed in our space test facilities. The test specimen shown in the picture is a highly complex component (VITF - Vinci Intermediate Thrust Frame) to which the engine for the second rocket stage of Ariane 6 is coupled. The component itself absorbs the engine thrust and passes it on to the second rocket stage. In a specially initiated qualification test, we demonstrate and verify not only the functionality but also the strength and stiffness properties of this primary structure. Ariane 6 is a family of launch vehicles. It will be able to deliver payloads of any type into an optimized orbit - regardless of the type of mission. This could [...]

Today it was like being at the North Pole in the Secret Santa workshop. In the last few days we were able to buy many gifts from our year-round fundraising campaign "Your customer feedback makes children's wishes come true". For each received customer feedback, we paid 10.00 Euros into the donation pot – throughout the whole year. Thanks to the feedback from our customers, the additional donations from our employees and an additional contribution from the management, such a nice total amount has been collected. Thus, today we wrapped presents for all the children from the "Outlaw" family aid in Meißen. Tomorrow we are going to Meißen to give the Christmas presents to the children, which we were able to realize thanks to many contributors. There’s [...]

Every single year, on long Winter evenings at home, we try very different methods in order to just achieve one modest goal: cracking the nuts. This can quickly turn into a rather tricky challenge when one wants to reach the inside without shattering the tasty kernel. What does this need? - Patience, craftsmanship and most importantly the necessary sensitivity. Here at IMA Dresden, cracking the so-called hardest nuts i.e. difficult problems is part of our daily routine, even if we sometimes have to grit our teeth first. Irrespective of whether this concerns standard inspections and tests or special solutions, simple material samples or inspections or tests on complex components - we solve all our tasks with great passion.
Not just during [...]
