The Digital Turn in the Machine Tool Market
Today's machine tools are characterized by diverse and high-precision machining options for a wide variety of workpieces. Modern computer-controlled systems make this possible.
But the road is far from over. Digitalization is driving the development of machines and CNC control technology at an immense speed. It opens up many new possibilities to increase productivity and changes industrial production sustainably.
Two pioneers in exchange
What this means in concrete terms is told in the interview by two pioneers of the digital transformation of the machine tool:
Dr. Wieland Klein, CTO of Heinrich Georg GmbH and
Dr. Wolfgang Heuring, CEO of Siemens Motion Control
Partnership between LTC and GEORG extended
LTC recently achieved pre-acceptance for two new GEORG electrical steel production lines. The highly specialized lines are tailored for production in electrical steel service centers and are equipped with most of the features of a full-blown high-performance slitting line.
They feature a level of automation unparalleled in this sector, very high production speeds and a high production capacity.
Sven Helsper, former working student at GEORGinnovation, dealt with 3D printing as part of the additive manufacturing project. His task: Find components that are suitable for additive manufacturing, using a methodology based on filtering and specific criteria.
The opportunities of 3D printing lie in saving manufacturing costs, but also in increasing performance by unifying assemblies. The future application areas of 3D printing are manifold, for example, our customers can benefit from the new spare parts manufacturing technology in GEORG Service.
