A whole day for new mobility concepts

Tornos, a global leader in the development, manufacture and distribution of automatic lathes and multispindle machines, impresses with another innovation and invites a select audience to an extraordinary event. On Thursday, June 27, 2019, everything revolves around mobility at the Intelligent Manufacturing Conference (IMC) at the Kraftwerk event venue in Rottweil, Germany. The aim is to assess whether new opportunities in mobility represent an opportunity or a risk for the lathe industry.

The turned parts industry faces great challenges due to two main factors. On the one hand, the automotive industry is working hard on alternative drive and mobility concepts. On the other hand, the digital transformation is driving suppliers to rethink. Which strategies are suitable for turned parts manufacturers to master these challenges and to create opportunities?

These topics form the core of the IMC. Keynote speeches, expert talks, dynamic workshops and the accompanying exhibition will give participants valuable firsthand know-how from research to application. At the all-day event, leading players from the entire value chain will provide insight into their solution competence.

The aim of the conference is to bring together developers and researchers as well as buyers of turned parts from the automotive industry with suppliers and to initiate an intensive exchange of experience. This will give participants a real advantage in terms of knowledge and enable them to anticipate changes at an early stage.

A selection of first-class speakers

Tornos has invited four specialists to talk about mobility. Does new mobility need new suppliers? How can the pressure of the market be used to your advantage? These and many other interesting questions are to be answered - and views exchanged - under the direction of journalist and digital economist Katrin-Cécile Ziegler.

Prof. Dr. sc. techn. Thomas Koch, director of the Karlsruhe Institute of Technology (KIT) and expert in the Transport and Digital Infrastructure Committee of the German Bundestag in the context of "air quality / technical retrofitting of diesel cars," will give a keynote address on "Emissions, immissions, future potential: a factual Assessment the diesel technology."

Koch had previously worked as a mechanical engineer for ten years in commercial vehicle engine development at Daimler AG in various positions. He presents the interesting, but certainly not uncontroversial, thesis that diesel technology itself is now only responsible for a very small part of the development of particulate matter.
