METAV 2018 confirms ongoing economic boom in metalworking
24.02.2018 METAV 2018 – the 20th International Exhibition for Metalworking Technologies – ends today after five eventful days. The area concept, which was launched two years ago and focusses on specific topics (quality, additive manufacturing, tool and mould production and medical technology) is now fully established with both exhibitors and visitors.
Inside 3D Printing: sounding out the future
11.01.2018 As soon as the first devices appeared for private users, a veritable hype surrounded 3D printing. But there’s a whole lot more behind additive manufacturing than a plaything at the breakfast table, as demonstrated by the Inside 3D Printing International Specialised Conference, to be held in Düsseldorf on 21 and 22 February under the aegis of the METAV 2018. This series of events, one of the sector’s largest with its 10,000 visitors, and scheduled to also be held in cities like Singapore, Sydney, New York and Tokyo during 2018, focuses not only on informational feedback, but primarily on looking into the future.
Intelligent software solutions master metrological tasks
09.01.2018 The challenges entailed by the omnipresent Industry 4.0 hype are immense: integration into flexible manufacturing processes, assuring process stability and production quality. Metrological technology has a particularly exacting remit in this context: fewer measurements in the measuring room – more measurements at the line itself. Solutions of this kind increasingly have to be integrated into a self-organising production environment. Stefan Staab, Product Manager KMG (Coordinate Measuring Machines) at Wenzel Group GmbH & Co. KG, Wiesthal, explains what role modern-day metrological technology can and must play here.
“It’s cutting-edge technology, so what do you know about Industry 4.0?”
28.12.2017 At the METAV 2018, a forum on sawing technology will be held for the first time on 20 February. It will be showcasing the latest developments and presenting applicationally relevant solutional approaches for simple single-blank cutting in a workshop environment all the way through to mass-production blank cutting.
