Math2Market won the FILTREXTM Innovation Award 2019 in Berlin / Germany on May 14th, 2019.
The company was voted the winner of the award by more than 50% of the votes for its easy-to-use and innovative FiberFind -AI module in GeoDict software. Nominated for the award were Math2Market, Ahlstrom-Munksjö, Freudenberg and Welstrat.
The newly developed FiberFind -AI integrated in GeoDict 2019 is used for precise fiber and binder detection on µCT scans using neural networks. Dr.-Ing Mehdi Azimian, Business Manager for Filtration at Math2Market, presented the impressive performance of GeoDict in combination with FiberFind -AI to the expert audience at FILTREXTM and was delighted to receive the award in the evening.
µCT scans are a powerful tool to gain deep insights and ideas for innovation and quality control in materials engineering. GeoDict 2019 - especially the new module FiberFind -AI, which is based on artificial intelligence - provides the tools to better understand CT images and paves the way for the materials technology of the future.
On the nonwoven microstructures modeled in GeoDict, a neural network is trained that is able to recognize binder with FiberFind -AI and to identify fibers directly from µCT scans of real nonwovens. Once all fibers have been identified, detailed insights into the properties of fibers in a material can be gained. Fiber properties include fiber orientation after deposition in a nonwoven, fiber diameter and length distribution in a glass fiber-reinforced plastic, or local deformation of fibers in weaves. With FiberFind -AI, nonwoven manufacturers can develop novel, optimized products while greatly reducing prototypes and experimental costs and time.
