WFL Millturn Technologies News

Decades of expertise and innovative cooperation made in Linz

WFL is amongst the world‘s leading companies in machine tool construction. In 1993 WFL became an independent company focused on the manufacture of MILLTURN turning-boring milling centres. WFL – short for Werkzeugmaschinenfabrik Linz – was then taken over by the Autania Group. The ratio of exports makes up about 95% and subsidiaries and representatives are located in Germany, the USA, Brazil, Russia and China.

 

As of 2018, WFL can proudly look back on 25 years of business. What started out as a group of 12 individuals has grown into a team of more than 500 employees. Thanks to teamwork and a common goal, "best in complete machining" - which WFL still stands by today - the company is growing continuously.

Having focused on complete machining since 1983, WFL is the technology leader in the field of metal-cutting production machinery. The combination of different machining technologies such as turning, milling, drilling or grinding in one machine tool is known as complete machining. Clamp once – machine complete: this goes hand in hand with enormous economic and production-related advantages. Components for aircraft, turbines and vehicles –to name but a few – are manufactured from metallic raw materials (cast iron or forged parts).

 

WFL sets new standards – and not only in terms of technology. Also regarding research, WFL Millturn Technologies counts on two excellent partners and intense cooperation. The Oregon Manufacturing Innovation Center – or OMIC – is one of these partners. Oregon’s research centre unites manufacturers and universities within one innovation environment. The centre’s objective is to solve real problems for experienced manufacturers by means of applied research in a timely manner.

It is for cooperation, and more precisely shared research and development costs, that WFL is able to consider critical technology requirements. The Research Centre enables the development and use of new innovative tools, techniques and unique technologies. WFL Millturn Technologies supports this valuable partnership with a M80 MILLTURN. The machine is successfully used for research and training purposes. It masters the most challenging manufacturing tasks due to its sustainability and robustness. Thanks to this successful cooperation, WFL is able to optimise applied technologies in metal processing together with their customers.  At this year’s Technology Meeting from 26th – 28th of March 2019, Craig Campbell, CEO at OMIC, will be present and gives an exciting lecture. One more reason to visit us at the exhibition!
