Aeropolis

The aeronautical companies meet in Aerópolis to learn about Walter´s solutions on machining 4.0

The German company presented its new digital solutions for all stages of the machining process in a technical conference

Last May, the German firm Walter organized a technical workshop on machining 4.0, focused on the aeronautical industry, in order to share their progress and new solutions for the current machining process.

The day began with a presentation of the company and its technology centre located in its headquarters in Tübingen, addressing the means and possibilities of this center to help customers in the optimization of their processes with the more advanced technologies. They continued with Walter´s Engineering Kompetenz approach, moving from a product approach to a process approach to a digital process. In this section, Walter's digital solutions for a machining approach based on digital manufacturing of Industry 4.0 were presented.

In this way, they reviewed the stages of a machining process, from planning and management, to the machining phase and finished part, through logistics production. In planning and management, they presented the usefulness of the applications of Walter's online catalog, Tool Product data, Walter GPS, Tool · ID, Walter Xpress and e-Commerce. In logistics production, the pre-adjustment with Tool Management and Vendings, and in the machining and finishing part phase, they announced the new Walter appCom and iCut softwares, which can be integrated in the machining centers for the digilitation and optimization of the process itself. Walter's online catalog, now with a new intuitive and visual search system, was also unveiled.

Then they made a real time connection to Walter's Technology Center, with a virtual tour of the facilities, viewing the space and productive means and their characteristics. In addition, they carried out, in real time, the machining of a titanium piece with the most usual machining operations in the aeronautical sector.

The day ended with attendees experiencing some of the applications presented in small groups with real cases and testing the Microsoft glasses 'Hololens' adapted to Walter's Solutions.
