Review: Topics of 2021
Flexible and agile production in the aviation industry

In the future, companies will need flexible production in order to successfully adapt to changes in the market. To achieve this goal, processes must be created that enable the economic production of small series and individual parts in metal cutting with the shortest possible throughput times. To achieve this, however, there are still some technical challenges to be solved.

At this year’s MIC you will learn from experts
from the industry about the market’s requirements for metal cutting, the challenges companies face in implementing the economic production of small batches and individual parts, the contribution technology providers are making to optimisation and what research is currently working on to improve the status quo.

Speaker 2021

At the MIC, you will learn first-hand from users what requirements are placed on flexible production. For this purpose, we have invited company representatives who will tell you about their everyday lives.

Solution providers will also show you how the requirements can be met. And you can discuss your own requirements directly with experts. We are looking forward to the exchange in Hanover.
