DSK Shivajians play Tata Football Academy in U-18 I-League tie
1st February 2016 – Kolkata, India – DSK Shivajians will look to build on their impressive 4-0 victory over Lonestar Kashmir in the Final Round of the Under 18 I-League when they face Tata Football Academy on 2nd February 2016 at the Howrah Stadium, Kolkata.
The team, consisting of players from Liverpool FC International Academy – DSK Shivajians, has already played two matches in the tournament, drawing the first one and winning the second. On the other hand, Tata Football Academy has won their first two matches of the tournament, and is currently leading the Group A with 6 points.
Speaking ahead of the crucial encounter, Shirish Kulkarni, President, DSK Shivajians Football Club, said: “We had a good result last time out and we will be looking to build on that. However, this is more about development of the players than it is about winning. We have an impressive youth setup at the club and the coaches from Liverpool FC have ensured that we take the right steps which would help the players to perform at the top of their abilities.”
Dave Rogers, Head Coach, Liverpool FC International Academy – DSK Shivajians, added: “After yesterday’s impressive victory over Lonestar Kashmir, the boys are in good spirit and really looking forward for Tuesday’s game. TFA have made an excellent start to the competition with 2 wins from 2 games so we know we need to prepare and be focused for what is going to be a really tough match. They are well organized and have good players, but we have done our homework on them and found areas which we feel if we execute on the day, we can exploit and expose them. It’s the biggest game because it’s the next game and if our Academy players want to carry on their progress then performing against a top Academy like TFA would show how far they have developed.”
The match will kick-off tomorrow at 2:15 pm at the Howrah Stadium in Kolkata.
1st February, 2016Bangalore:Fraunhoferwill participate in the 13th Auto Expo 2016 – Components, which will be held in New Delhi, India Thursday, February 4 – Sunday, February 7.It is the 3rd consecutive year for Fraunhofer, and this year they will exhibit a variety of technologies, mainly in the areas of “Vehicle Light Weighting”, highlightingthe Megatrends, Relevance for Production of Forming Technologies, Lightweight Design Strategies, and various relevant case studies at the German Pavilion, Hall No. 10.
With the global mega trends indicating the need to be both resource efficient & energy efficient, light weighting in automobiles is the need of the hour to improve in both these indicators. Increased safety and comfort demands brought more weight into the vehicle. Stronger motors led to rising fuel consumptions. Fraunhofer’s Lightweight construction is the key technology to counteract this development to ensure furthermore the production of safe, comfortable and high performance cars while protecting resources and the environment at the same time. At Fraunhofer, a special focus is given to
- higher process stability for decrease of rejections,
- improved material usage for reduction waste as well as
- General shortening of process chains to reduce the material input and energy consumption.
The usage of lightweight materials is only reasonable when their mechanical characteristics such as stability, stiffness and temperature resistance are better than steel. The same is true for the costs. Therefore, Fraunhofer researches extensively on forming and joining technologies for the optimum usage of high-strength steels, aluminium, and magnesium and fibre composite materials.
Other Exhibits include:
Composite fiber wheel with integrated electric motor
In electric vehicles, the conventional internal-combustion engine is replaced with one or several electric motors. To highlight the opportunities this alternative drive system offers, a fiber composite lightweight wheel was developed at Fraunhofer LBF within the framework of a collaborative research project in the field of electromobility.Image 1: Carbon fiber-reinforced polymer wheel (CFRP) – motor adapter flange and wheel hub motor section.

LASER SURFACE TREATMENT
Various surface treatment techniques can prolong tool life and improve component, tool or die performance. The aim here is not only to select a suitable material and the right kind of heat treatment for the component but also to find the right surface treatment technique. Fraunhofer’s speciality lies in Coating of complex formed component surfaces in a highly modern machine tool system & Development and use of modern CAx technologies for product design, process design and simulation as well as NC data generation.
Fraunhofer, Head Quartered in Munich, Germany, is Europe’s largest applied research organization with 66 Institutes and Research Units and an annual budget of over 2 Billion Euros. The majority of more than 24,000 employees are qualified scientists and engineers. Fraunhofer has been active in India since the past several years, bringing innovative technologies and research competence to India. Fraunhofer offers applied R&D services in varied fields such as, textiles and new materials, aviation, food technology, aerospace and ICT. Fraunhoferin India is the chosen R&D and innovation partner of some of the giant players in the field of Energy, Automotive, Production Technology of Government and Private Organizations.
Fraunhofer in India:Fraunhofer has been active in India for a long time through its individual institutes. However, the brand Fraunhofercame to India in the middle of 2008 with the appointment of Ms. Anandi Iyer as its Senior Advisor in India. Theobjective was to concentrate its effort to understand the Indian market and engage with Industry, Government andAcademia. The India Office of Fraunhofer in Bangalore, was inaugurated on October 30, 2012 which houses anExperience Theatre showcasing some of the latest technologies and the Fraunhofer Innovation and Technology (FIT). Fraunhofer works with 30 of the 50 leading companies in India and in the last five years,contracts worth more than 10 Million Euros were signed. Ms. Anandi Iyer is presently the Director of India office and basedon her network within Fraunhofer, she makes innovative technologies accessible to Indian clients and establishes
strategic partnerships with Indian and Research Organisations.
