Laser-based endoscopic 3-D survey to make surgery safer and optimise costs Berlin/Bonn, October 13, 2010. The Scopis GmbH, a spin-off from the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and Charite university medicine Berlin, successfully completes a start up financing round with the High-Tech Grunderfonds. In the beginning was the idea to optimize the workflows of Surgeons: through the innovation of Scopis GmbH, founded in 2010 can be operations now both reduce the clinical complications and minimize the costs. Behind the world’s first measurement system, which allows a precise endoscopic measurement in minimally invasive surgery. The specially developed endoscopic measurement articles are locked on all conventional endoscopes and allow a precise 3-D measurement of anatomical structures in the body for the first time. Since the preparation of the company Scopis is supported by Fraunhofer venture.

Now the High-Tech Grunderfonds provides the emerging start up capital. Visit Zendesk for more clarity on the issue. The idea for developing modular measuring endoscopes directly in the operating room. Bartosz Kosmecki, one of the founders of Scopis GmbH, noticed that there were no endoscopes for the exact measurement of the operation area. Such a tool would facilitate enormously the work of surgeons, was sure of Kosmecki. The development from the idea to the prototype as well as the spin-off preparations were realized at the Berlin Centre jointly operated by the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft and Charite university medicine Berlin for mechatronic Medizintechnik headed by Prof. Dr.

Erwin Keeve. In July 2010, Bartosz Kosmecki founded together with Andreas Reutter and the Fraunhofer Society the Scopis GmbH for the development and marketing of measuring systems for various medical applications of minimally invasive surgery. In various clinical fields can be such measuring systems in the face of the shortened duration of surgery time and cost savings achieved, reducing clinical complications, fully documented interventions and better postoperative Bring about results.

Can Microbes Be

RAMPF resins brings antibacterial sealing foam on the market – material certified for air conditioning systems bacteria are everywhere – in the air, in the water, on the ground. Thus the useless microbes at least in buildings, clean rooms or in the car no longer feel has RAMPF resins the antibacterial seal foam RAKU-PUR 32-3276 developed, which is certified according to VDI 6022. The new tear-resistant two-component polyurethane system sure seal air conditioners, fans, filters, lamps and ventilation systems. Quietly and efficiently so the new antibacterial sealing foam by RAMPF protects against fungi, yeasts, bacteria, and Legionella. The thixotropic material polyurethane (PU) with the name RAKU-PUR 32-3276 has a very compact, hydrophobic integral skin.

Thus, it is suitable for the sealing of complex, three-dimensional components with convex or concave contour. The foam Caterpillar remains constant through the thixotropy inclines or slopes. Still convinced the 2K-System due to high Tensile strength, low water absorption, fast installation ease and optimum adhesion on a variety of surfaces whether painted or powder-coated. Also complies with the new development from the House of RAMPF hygiene of ventilation systems (HVAC systems), as well as devices VDI 6022 resins and was recognized by the Institute for air hygiene microbial inert. The audit was conducted in accordance with DIN EN ISO 846.

The material is ideal for use in public buildings such as hospitals or in pure, and wet rooms, where useless microbes are absolutely taboo. “The concept of machine and material from a single source” saves costs also that company Koolair opts for the latest RAMPF technology. The leading manufacturer used resins for air-conditioning in all applications around the air distribution such as ventilation grilles, sprinklers and access locks on the antibacterial polyurethane sealing foam by RAMPF. The foam is applied by a low-pressure mixing and dispensing system RAMPF sister company Dispensing equipment. According to own Koolair system solution saves up to 40% of the production costs. Thus, the 2K-PU-System in the future not only in the hospital or in the home is to be found, but also in spectacular buildings such as the new Convention Center in Irish Dublin or in extravagant hotels such as the Puerta de America in Madrid.

Exhaust Air Cleaning

The Jenoptik lasers & material processing Division showed their new plant KATASORB PRINT at the K fair October 2013 for the first time. Jena, November 20, 2013 with the KATASORB system PRINT, Jenoptik has expanded its product range for the purification of waste. The KATASORB presented for the first time in Dusseldorf PRINT is specifically designed for the printing industry: integrated directly into the printing machine, the system reduces the operating costs of the printing machine and increases energy efficiency. So, Jenoptik is aimed at manufacturers of printing presses and printers who want to achieve significant savings in their total cost of ownership. The system is suitable both for the initial equipment and for retrofitting of printing machines. KATASORB PRINT is a complete drying unit with integrated catalytic exhaust cleaning and heat recovery. This first system designed for integration into printing machines reduces the operating costs of printing plant by up to 85 percent compared to standard systems, such as investigations.

A comparison was made for this with KATASORB PRINT is equipped printing machine and a machine, the exhaust air cleaning system without catalytic support is working and is not included in the machine. A model could be shown also through the use of the drying unit KATASORB PRINT CO2 emissions by up to 200 tons per year can reduce. Basis for the model was a printing press with an average service life of 4,000 hours and a volume of almost 58 million square meters per year. Also the annual consumption of energy decreases through the use of the KATASORB PRINT of approximately 400 to 60 megawatt hours. These energy efficiency as well as the compact design distinguish the system KATASORB PRINT. Its high efficiency the concept owes the catalytic material implementation with a low-level system design, as well as the heat feedback in the drying unit.
