The topics 2020
When the year 2020 began, there was a very clear goal in aviation: „We must continue to increase production figures! The Covid-19 pandemic has changed everything. At the 20th Machining Innovations Conference for Aerospace Industry we talked about the new goals, problems and solutions. Working groups and keynote speeches focused on the following topics:
Where is a workpiece, what still has to be done and which machines are currently running? Unfortunately, this information is not available at the push of a button. We talk to you about networking possibilities and ready-to-use solutions.
The demand for new aircraft has fallen dramatically. OEM’s have now reduced their production volume. But how should suppliers react? We have invited experts with whom you can talk about solutions.
Manufacturing companies must optimize their cost structures and become more flexible. This requires intelligent processes. Using solutions from research and systems available on the market, we show you what is possible.
Excelente research solves the problems of the industry. Therefore, the conference always starts with first-class speakers from the industry, telling us about their experiences. This year there were:
