Annual Conference of Luvo Networks

On the occasion of the annual network conference of the Luvo networks on 26 and 27 November 2019, the IfM presents the lecture "Digitisation of movements and application examples" as part of a workshop on the topic of project work in the age of digitisation. Furthermore, the new network MoniCareTex, in which the IfM is a member, will be presented.

RAMSIS User Conference

At the RAMSIS User Conference in Dresden on 29/30th October the first results in the joint project DELFIN are presented.

4th Saxon Innovation Day

At the 4th Saxon Innovation Day on 8 October 2019 in Leipzig, the institutes of the Saxon Industrial Research Association SIG e.V. present their current developments and research work on the topic Shaping Future Sustainably. Examples are shown in speed science lectures, like "Evaluation of Digital Movements" by the Institute of Mechatronics.

Company Run 2019

The Institute of Mechatronics is starting at the 14th Chemnitz company run with a team of six participants.


At the XR-Expo (July 3/4, 2019, Stuttgart) the IfM will present current applications for the digitization of human movements at the ART booth. For these applications, motion capture hardware from ART is used in combination with the biomechanical human simulation model Dynamicus from IfM.

alaska 9.7 released

Release 9.7 of the simulation software alaska/ModellerStudio has been released. An essential innovation is an interface to the rolling bearing calculation module from MESYS (, a software for technical calculations in mechanical engineering. A further innovation is the significant extension of the functionalities for modelling and high-performance use of contacts between individual bodies in MBS simulation models. 

Hannover Messe 2019

The insys GmbH presents on the Hannover Messe 2019 (01 - 05 April) current results of the R&D activities of the Institut für Mechatronik e.V.
Joint Pavilion "Future Technologies Saxony" Hall 002 - Stand A29

11th SAXSIM (SAXon SImulation Meeting)

At the 11th SAXSIM (Simulation User Meeting), the IfM is invited to give the lecture "New Methods and Analysis for the Evaluation of Models in the Multibody Dynamics Software alaska".

alaska 9.6 released

Release 9.6 of the simulation software alaska/ModellerStudio has been released. In addition to a large number of detail improvements, the main innovations are the possibility of parallel processing of externally defined forces and the calculation of gravity-induced loads.

Saxon Innovation Day 2018

The motto of the third Innovation Day of the Saxon Industrial Research Association SIG e.V. on 25 October 2018 is At the beginn there's always an idea. It shows the way from the idea to the successful implementation. Examples of this will be presented in a Speed Science. The programme and further information can be found in the (German) flyer.
