The SURface water condensing measuring system, the Austenitemeter detector, or prints from the largest 3D center in Moravia UPrint 3D will be presented by the Palacký University in Olomouc at the International Engineering Fair in Brno.
“Windscreen demisting, optical system monitoring, smart ventilation in the car. This is just a small number of possibilities of using our SURface technology, which can measure the surface condensation of water in various applications. The possibilities of using SURface technology are wide. It can be applied in the automotive or aviation industry as well as in smart buildings and households, “says Petr Fryčák of the Department of Analytical Chemistry of the Faculty of Science and technology developer, developed in the Palackého University Proof-of-Concept project (VTP UP) and financially supported by Technological agency of the Czech Republic.
SURface can also be used in hospitals, for example, when monitoring patient breathing. Thanks to technology, doctors can observe the patient’s breathing mask to see if it breathes properly and fluently.
“The Austenitemeter enables fast and non-destructive determination of the structural, phase and magnetic characteristics of iron-containing materials. A uniquely designed device using Mössbauer spectroscopy can serve not only to determine residual austenite but also to identify other phases and structures such as ferrite, perlite, martensite. Compared to competitive solutions, we do not analyze the material at any one specific point but integrally on a larger area, which makes it possible to find more relevant conclusions about the composition of the material, “says Jiří Pechoušek, PhD, of the Department of Experimental Physics of the Palacký University. “In addition, the Austenitemeter can selectively scan the surface and massive samples to a depth of about 20 or 100 μm or thin films. The device is mobile and accelerates the work of engineers, as the analysis takes up to 20 minutes, “adds Lukáš Kouřil, a technology co-author of the technology.
“We offer technology for use and we look for industrial partners who will use it for their needs and their real requirements and requirements. We can immediately demonstrate and test the equipment directly to those interested in technology, “says Petr Kubečka, Business Development Manager, VTP UP.
Both technologies and samples of 3D prints from metal, plastic and paper from UPrint 3D will allow visitors to see under the Olomouc Region stand throughout the fair (1.-.5.10.2018) in the Z-hall.
