Date: Tuesday – Friday (13 – 16 September 2022)
Time: 9:30 – 17:00 each day
Location: L-Bank Forum (Hall 1), Stand 1B50
Partners: VDMA Precision Tools and VDMA Measuring and Testing Technology

A quick overview of innovative solutions and current trends in metalworking were provided by the technical short presentations during the first four days of AMB (September 13-16, 2022) at the VDMA booth B50 in Hall 1.

44 presentations with innovative solutions from industry - incl. 12 startups - and 5 research institutes - in 15-minute slots, the speakers provided information on the latest technologies and, following their presentations, were available for discussions and talks with the participants of the Technology Forum.

The presentations in the topic area of cutting tools focused, among other things, on high-precision machining, the cutting of difficult materials, the optimization of tool set-up times and aspects of digitization. In addition to different clamping technologies, the clamping technology manufacturers were highlighting sustainability aspects when selecting the right technology and providing information on automation solutions using sensory clamping devices and zero-point clamping systems. In the field of measuring and testing technology, the topics ranged from multisensory measurement in manufacturing to optical and acoustic testing and the potential of digitization. Research companies presented the latest findings in the fields of polishing, materials for additively manufactured tools, and hybrid manufacturing of components, and startups from Startup Machine spanned the use of AI from product development to machine utilization. New technological approaches to remote service, simulation, machine selection and quality control were addressed here, as will intelligent algorithms for optimizing manufacturing processes.
