Key technology this was microelectronics, micro and precision engineering (GMM) in collaboration with the University of East Westphalia-Lippe in a dynamically growing environment where by the VDE/VDI society and symposium organized electronic and optical connectivity the VDI Ostwestfalen-Lippe District Association 2009 \”clearly on the over forty authors from large companies, medium-sized businesses, as well as colleges and universities practical examples from various areas of technology presented and discussed. The electronic and optical connectivity to a base technology in a rapidly growing environment of the electronics and information technology has evolved over the years. The horizontal and vertical growth of this environment leads to new challenges for the electronic and optical connection technology that require major efforts in the research and development work in the area\”, explained the Chairman of the event Professor Dr. Jian song laboratory for fine control of the University of East Westphalia-Lippe in Lemgo. The large number of conference papers reflect the intensive research and development work in this long-neglected area.
In his speech, song referred to recent studies on the wear of electrical contacts. To increase their service life, it is necessary to increase not only the wear resistance, but to achieve also good types of wear. The investigations led to the conclusion that despite the use of hard gold wear on the contact zone is very strong. Target future development work is therefore interpreted the contact surface to modify, increasing the life of electrical contacts with precious metal surfaces. Coating mechatronic components due to the progressive miniaturization of components permanently increase the demands on coating materials for mechatronic components. Conventional coating systems are also through increased use of temperature and vibration requirements and use of new materials such as for example aluminium cables to the Limits their functionality pushed\”, stressed Udo Eagle of the Stolberg KME Germany AG & co. KG. High strength materials with good forming properties and lower stress relaxation are necessary to maintain the required minimum contact time over the entire life cycle.
