AMB Iran: A new platform for expert knowledge in production.
 
Messe Stuttgart and the German Machine Tool Builders' Association (VDW) are organizing a joint symposium with a trade fair in Tehran. The cancellation of economic sanctions is paving the way for the revival of business relations with Iran. Great importance is being attached to the entire value creation chain in manufacturing technology.

AMB, with its international exhibitors, and the VDW, with its German members, are supporting the resumption of business relations with Iranian companies. The aim of the two partners is to establish an international platform for manufacturing technology for the Iranian market and neighboring countries. An enormous economic boom in Iran is expected worldwide. Together with the VDW, with AMB Iran Messe Stuttgart is hosting an event in Tehran for the first time.

The Boostan Goftegoo´s Exhibition & Conference Center in Tehran has been selected as the event venue. Promotional supporters for the event are the VDMA Precision Tools Association and the VDMA Measuring and Testing Technology Association.
 
The Iranian industrial and trading city, with its universities, colleges, libraries and museums, is an important center for business, science and culture. Tehran is also an important national transport hub. Located on a site of around 145,000 sq m (gross area), the Boostan Goftegoo (Dialogue Park) is home to various facilities, including the trade fair center, conference rooms, a library, restaurants and a park.

The Boostan Gaftegoo´s Exhibition & Conference Center offers five exhibition halls with 7,290 sq m and conference rooms for up to 500 participants. The site is located close to the Milad Towers and various international hotels, and is connected by highways to the transport network.
 
The VDW (Frankfurt am Main, Germany) speaks for the German machine tool construction industry. Around 300 companies, representing approximately 90 percent of the overall turnover in the sector, formed the association voluntarily. With its in-depth industrial know-how and competence, the VDW is primarily a service provider for its members. In 2016 the VDW is celebrating its 125th anniversary as a modern service provider association with a long tradition.

LASYS is the only international trade fair to clearly focus on system solutions in laser material processing. It has successfully established itself as a user platform for the latest laser systems, machines and processes. LASYS covers all industries and materials, in particular decision-makers from international industry. The focal points of the trade fair are all proven, but also innovative manufacturing processes, applications and potential uses of lasers in industrial manufacturing.

Visitors to LASYS 2016 will have the opportunity to hold extensive discussions with experienced laser experts regarding their problems and find new ideas and solutions. New opportunities with lasers and new application areas in the nanometer processing range, for example, are therefore being developed.

Lasers are able, for example, to engrave metal so finely that the light wavelengths are brokenly reflected in the engraved structure. Depending on the incidence angle of the light, a different colour is reflected. This could become interesting for designers in the coin industry or the jewellery and watch industries.
 
Exhibitors at LASYS satisfy the needs of manufacturing industry with their innovative laser systems. They include improved and optimized operation of laser production systems, fully automated marking processes, and precise positioning or marking on free-form surfaces. Modern laser production systems must be able to grow with the company and adapt accordingly to the new challenges.

The international high-tech trade fair LASYS is also adapting to market conditions and attaches great importance in its unique concept to the user-friendly presentation of innovative laser material processing technology for different manufacturers and materials. An extensive, first-class accompanying program including the Stuttgart Laser Technology Forum (SLT), the technical forum "Lasers in Action“ and the short course entitled "Basic knowledge of lasers and laser material processing" will also provide visitors with the opportunity to bring their knowledge of lasers up to date and obtain advanced training on this subject.

Heller Machine Tools will host their annual WerkTage at their headquarters in Nürtingen, Germany, June 15-17 2016. Themed “The New Formula for Production,” the event will present a new generation of versatile machining centers that feature a fifth axis provided by the workpiece that have been designed for dynamic 5-sided as well as simultaneous 5-axis machining. 

Heller will again provide extensive insights into production and assembly during WerkTage, with hands-on demonstrations in the Manufacturing Center and moderated panel discussions that underscore the practical orientation and attraction of the event.

To register for the event, please click here.

For the new generation machine concept, Heller has utilized proven components that are also used in existing machine series to develop an extremely productive machine suited for a wide range of parts and materials. All rotational axes are provided by the workpiece.

As a logical expansion of the existing product portfolio, this new machine concept is synonymous with high process stability, with the fifth axis designed as a bridge with counter bearing to guarantee a high degree of stability, while the horizontal spindle guarantees fast tool changes, resulting in minimal idle times. High flexibility was another priority in the development of the machine, so the machining center is either available in table design or equipped with pallet changer. Additionally, proven motor spindle technology lets users choose between HSK63 and HSK100 spindle taper.

Exhibits in the Manufacturing Center include the new machine concept, the mill/turning center model CP 4000, and the 5-axis machining center model FP 16000.

The CP 4000 mill/turning center places the emphasis on turning operations in addition to its proven milling characteristics. For this purpose, the machine is equipped with a fifth axis provided by the tool combined with a direct driven rotary table. Vertical and horizontal turning operations of outer and inner contours can be accomplished without any problem with the C-axis and optional A- and B-axis.

The 5-axis machining center model FP 16000 provides traverse paths of 2400 mm x 1600 mm x 1600 mm (X/Y/Z), a speed range between 5 and 8,000 rpm and 60 kW drive power. 
 
Having received a certificate for outstanding commitment in education 2015/2016, Heller will be presenting its ProfiTrainer, a fully functional faithful model of a CNC controlled machine tool features four axes, a horizontal main spindle and a B-axis as rotary table. It allows to perform all operating functions with the movement sequences required for NC machining. Its Siemens 840 D sl control and the control cabinet are equipped with real control components as found in Heller's current machine series, which means the ProfiTrainer can be used to model all steps in the value-added chain from development and design through to production and assembly.

Additive manufacturing / 3D printing is changing the world. Its power is not just about the localization of production or the creation of spare parts. Its benefits are becoming more evident in mainstream production and we’re seeing more and more applications that feature complex, customized solutions which increase functionality, while reducing lead time and waste.

In the Aerospace section of Additive Manufacturing Europe, new production-grade materials enable the creation of complex, lighter and stronger parts using additive manufacturing. As air travel volumes increase each year, the benefits extend to the environment in terms of lighter aircraft and more economical supply chains.

In the Automotive section of Additive Manufacturing Europe, from form, fit and functional prototyping, additive manufacturing technologies are extending onto the production floor in greater volumes. It promises cleaner, lighter and safer products with shorter lead times and lower costs as a result of more localized manufacture.
