To manufacture and distribute products, many flows of goods have to be constantly commissioned in complex conveying systems. Common material goods flow systems usually consist of rigidly defined roller conveyor sections with central control, which are integrated into a manufacturing plant in a fixed fashion: when the flow of goods increases, a change of conveying route is necessarily linked to a high effort in time and costs.
The CCA-Carola Clean Air GmbH was founded in 2012 as a KIT spin-off. The CCA develops and sells ultrafine particle separators for biomass combustion that are suitable for fireplaces, pellet furnaces, log boilers, woodchip boilers, and fossil fuels. Dr. Paur is one of the founders of the CCA GmbH. In an interview, we asked him about their idea, startup phase, and future prospects.

Prof. Dr. Stiefelhagen is one of the founders of Videmo. In an interview, we asked him about the idea, startup phase, and future prospects. Continue reading
To study complex biomedical questions extensive screening experiments are necessary. In the research of widespread diseases, such as cancer or Alzheimer’s, a very high number of samples are studied under fully automated microscopes. However, on a global scale hardly any laboratories have the complete equipment and resources of interdisciplinary employees which are necessary for this. Biological methods, robot supported laboratory automation, intelligent microscopes, very large amounts of data, automatic image evaluation, and secure data exchange with other laboratories are always individual challenges. ACQUIFER AG offers a cost efficient overall solution for this.
