Over 1,500 international visitors—including customers, experts and industry representatives—experienced new metalworking technologies and current trends in the manufacturing industry at the Grinding Symposium 2019, a three-day trade event held by the United Grinding Group in Thun, Switzerland.
Packed with technology presentations and lectures, the Grinding Symposium also featured FutureLAB—which highlighted the future technologies in the metalworking and manufacturing industries.
“Our aim in presenting these future technologies is to create a dialogue with our customers and to discover more about their individual expectations and requirements,” explained Christoph Plüss, chief technology officer at United Grinding Group.
Through the 16 lectures at the symposium, attendees were able to discuss opportunities and challenges in the cooperation of human and machine, the potential of artificial intelligence (AI) and machine learning in the manufacturing industry, and practical production topics.
The 13 technology presentations provided opportunities for attendees to experience the latest machines and solutions—from the Mägerle MFP 30, an innovation in machining aircraft engine blades, to the European premiere of the Studer S31 for machining very long workpieces; and from the extensive services offered by the United Grinding Group’s Customer Care department through to the production of ultra-hard tools using laser on an EWAG LASER LINE ULTRA.
The United Grinding Group is one of the world’s leading manufacturers of precision machines for grinding, eroding, laser cutting, measuring and combination machining. Its corporate brands include Mägerle, Blohm, Jung, Studer, Schaudt, Mikrosa, Walter and EWAG.
