In close co-operation with the project partner German Aerospace Center (DLR) in Stade MET GmbH had the possibility to measure the complex flow field in their research autoclave - with a loading length of 20 m and a loading diameter of 5.8 m. Using the newly by MET GmbH developed 3D flow sensors, the direction and the magnitude of flow velocity in the interior were determined at 60 positions. The measured flow field corresponds very well with the previously carried out flow calculation of the research autoclave in Stade.

The new measuring technology can be used in clean gases for speeds up to 25 m/s.

For MET GmbH the main benefits of this measurement are the evaluation of flow calculations and the optimal processing of components.


Rostock Ship Machinery Conference

The agenda for the first Rostock Ship Machinery Conference is online!

We would like to invite you on 21. - 22.09.2017 in the Radisson Blu Hotel in Rostock. We are looking forward to interesting talks, many visitors and new contacts.

Review First Rostock Ship Machinery Conference

It was a great pleasure for us to welcome the international ship machinery experts in Rostock.

On 21/22 September 2017 the worldwide leading international ship machinery companies presented in top-class lectures the state of the art of science and technology in development, production and operation.

The discussion focused on the components and systems working together and on the complex interactions between them. Emission reduction, remote diagnostics and remote monitoring, reliability and lifetime prolongation were the most important topics.

Several presentations showed new ways of future support for the ship crews, for example web-based communication and on-shore online error correction or system optimization.

The interesting professional discussions were continued in the relaxed atmosphere watching the sunset on the panorama deck of the Radisson Blu Hotel.

The event was a great success and we are already planning the 2. Rostock Ship Machinery Conference in 2019.

Many thanks to our exhibitors!

MET at the 35th CADFEM ANSYS Simulation Conference

From 15th to 17th November 2017 we were successfully represented as a CADFEM partner at the largest simulation event in Germany. We would like to thank all who visited our booth for the interesting exchange and look forward to the continuation of the discussions.

The large number of qualified lectures and seminars offered the opportunity to learn new things in the field of simulation. Furthermore, there was also an intensive exchange of experience with software developers, users and customers.

In addition to new applications of the existing simulation programs, a new tool "ANSYS Discovery Live" was presented, which enables us to evaluate the strength or flow behavior of a component in a new way during the development and design process. Currently "ANSYS Discovery Live" is being tested in-house.

In one of Germany's leading research platforms, the CFK-Nord in Stade, a CFRP lightweight construction day was held for the first time on 15 November 2017. The event was organized by the state of Lower Saxony and the research institutes DLR and Fraunhofer.

In the course of the exhibition, results for the optimization of CFRP production were presented at the MET stand. In numerous projects for Airbus and DLR, MET Motoren- und Energietechnik GmbH has successfully used self-developed simulation models for the analysis and optimization of autoclave and RTM processes. For example, MET can simulate the complete autoclave process including the reaction kinetics for a component three-dimensional and time-dependent. This method has been used to carry out significant development work, such as optimizing the autoclave process for the A350 upper wing shell. We are currently working on behalf of DLR to optimize the autoclave process for a GLARE component. MET Motoren- und Energietechnik GmbH was able to actively participate in the lightweight construction day by presenting these projects.
