Fraunhofer IZM organizes the first international Maintenance, Repair and Overhaul (MRO) conference
The running costs of equipment and components have always been expensive and have recently even begun to escalate with spikes in the cost of raw materials. Cost-efficient solutions for maintenance, repair and overhaul (MRO) are now more sought-after than ever.
As part of the Fraunhofer innovation cluster MRO, Fraunhofer IPK and IZM jointly hosted the first-ever international conference addressing this issue on March 24th and 25th 2011. Hot topics at the conference, which was attended by over 200 scientists and professionals, included the latest developments in condition monitoring systems for electronic and mechatronic components, self-sufficient power supplies for such systems and new approaches for integrating them into harsh industrial or high-temperature environments.
