The Machine Tool Laboratory WZL of RWTH Aachen University and the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT are jointly organising the Aachen Conference on Machining and are inviting the expert audience to exchange experiences.. Live demonstrations and insights into current research activities will be provided during the comprehensive test bench tour at the Fraunhofer IPT and the WZL.

Machining is a key technology for the production of countless products and components, which is indispensable in many business fields from aerospace to tool and mould making to medical technology. However, many industries and production areas are currently in a state of upheaval: the transformation in the mobility sector, increasing demands for sustainability and resource efficiency, but also the trend towards digitalisation are putting pressure on companies to react quickly and further develop their machining technologies in order to remain competitive. This is precisely where great opportunities lie: for example, process data or machine learning methods can be used to increase component quality and significantly reduce costly scrap. New machining concepts and cooling lubrication strategies allow efficient and resource-saving production even of safety-critical components.

Practice-oriented lectures, live demonstrations and meeting of experts

In addition to the latest scientific findings in established fields of development, the Aachen Conference on Machining will also present new practical concepts for the design and control of machining production. Participants can expect application-oriented lectures in six sessions:

  • Tool development, machine and clamping systems
  • Cooling lubrication strategies
  • Process design and simulation
  • Monitoring and control
  • Digital twin and intelligent manufacturing
  • Sustainability

Live demonstrations and insights into current research activities will be provided during the comprehensive test bench tour at the Fraunhofer IPT and the WZL. The breaks and the joint evening event in the historic old town of Aachen invite you to exchange ideas and network extensively. The programme will be rounded off by an industrial exhibition of leading companies from this field of technology and their user industries.
