Innovations and creativity

    Particulate filter in a motorcycle helmet? Fine dust eater? Bionic filter? – MANN+HUMMEL is using its creativity and ability to take a broader view to develop solutions to meet the challenges of the future. Here we like to take inspiration from nature.

    The development of creative ideas requires taking a broad view. This approach is consistently applied in the company. Inspired by nature or playfully meeting the challenges of society, we use creativity to solve problems and in this way come up with innovative ideas. In this process, we are not afraid to intensively take on big tasks. We further develop our new products and test them in the laboratory and the field. 

    Our articles about innovations and creativity

    Aviation based on the principles of bird flight, fasteners based on the claw of the tiger, and Velcro products based on how burs cling on are impressive examples of technical innovations which were inspired by nature. The researchers at MANN+HUMMEL also draw on nature to make their products more durable and more effective.

    Higher pressures, smaller droplets: the requirements regarding oil separation in connection with crankcase ventilation are increasing. The new Lon­gLi­fe fiber demister from MANN+HUMMEL meets these requirements. It separates even the smallest droplets highly efficiently and in addition offers greater design flexibility.

    Prof. Dr. Achim Kampker, CEO of StreetScooter, is convinced that waiting for statutory regulations is not the solution to combat fine dust. In contrast, own initiatives can work. Since the end of 2017, StreetScooter, a subsidiary of Deutsche Post, the German postal service, has therefore been testing a fine dust particle filter specially developed by MANN+HUMMEL on its electric delivery vans.
