The known developments as a knock sensor or diesel injector demonstrate not only the versatility, but also the increasingly favourable cost / performance ratio in the mass application seminar with extensive practical part House of technology. Especially in ultrasonic technology opens up significant potential for development in areas such as the powder paint atomization, the ultrasonic levitation or the degassing of liquids. The two-day seminar of piezo and ultrasonic technology on the 13th and 14th September 2010 in Hanover deals not only with the basics and applications of piezo – and ultrasound technology, but also extensively treated the classifications and modelling of piezoelectric systems as well as static and dynamic applications to special areas such as Energyharvesting in energy-autonomous sensors. Lectures and discussions are complemented by extensive internship units, which the participants apply the learned in the laboratory. The seminar under the direction of Prof. Dr.

ing. Jorg Wallaschek from the Institute of dynamics and Vibrations of the Leibniz University of Hanover is aimed at engineers who are engaged in the practical development of products and applications in the field of piezo – and ultrasound techniques. The seminar provides great benefit also divisions such as innovation, technology development and patents, here to familiarize officials with the current state of the art and the major development trends.
