Thank you for visiting our homepage. The 18th Machining Innovations Conference for Aerospace Industry with 180 participants from 14 countries was a great success. There is no other branch, which combines such high safety standards, requirements and qualifications on cost efficiency than the aerospace industry. To face these challenges, a continuous development of new light and high-strength materials in aerospace industry is necessary. Alongside with the sales forecasts for the upcoming years this leads to new challenges for manufacturing technology in the aerospace industry.
To meet these challenges the Institute of Production Engineering and Machine Tools of the Leibniz University Hannover (IFW) and the Manufacturing Innovations Network e.V. organize the “Machining Innovations Conference for Aerospace Industry” since 18 years. Last year's conference contributed different insights in the latest developments and trends in regard of manufacturing technology in the aerospace industry. Main topics were machine tool technology and additive manufacturing.
Keynote speakers of the MIC2018:
• Dr. Thomas Ehm, CEO at Premium AEROTEC GmbH
• Mirko Merlo, President at Walter AG
• Dr. Jochen Kress, President at MAPAL Dr Kress AG
• Udo Burggraf, Business Development Manager Aerospace at GE Additive
We will give you detailed information about the MIC2019 program as soon as possible.
