How can you accurately control a machine in a virtual reality application without any keyboard or user interface? Dominic Gottwalles and Centigrade developed a virtual industrial environment in which test persons controlled a machine by touching their own palm. For his master's thesis on this topic, Dominic Gottwalles has received the "Digitization in Mechanical Engineering" award by the German Engineering Federation (VDMA).
The Berlin plant of AHC Oberflächentechnik GmbH is specialized in so-called plasma-chemical processes, which are marketed under the brand name Kepla-Coat (for aluminium and titanium) or Magoxid-Coat (for magnesium). These coating processes produce white, wear and corrosion resistant or black oxide ceramic coatings that absorb strong light.
