Innovation Days in October 2017

“Fit for the future! The pipe processing of tomorrow“ – this was the motto of the 13th edition of our popular Innovation Days on the 16th and 17th October, 2017 in Schmallenberg. In their presentations, the experts placed a special focus on advanced technologies for single piece and small batch production – thus inviting the specialist audience to engage in an intensive exchange of ideas concerning tried-and-tested processes and cutting-edge innovations.

Right at the beginning, the presentation entitled ”Innovative screwed connection systems in hydraulics“ provided interesting facts on the topic of hydraulic hoses and on what has to be considered with pipe/hose systems. Leakage-free, clean and quick solutions are especially vital here. Another presentation then showed innovations from the area of precision steel pipes for hydraulic applications. The focus here was on innovative coatings that are used as a replacement for CR-VI pipes. Wireless pipe measurement and construction were covered in a separate presentation which, in addition to the construction of pipe geometries, also went into detail concerning the topic of reverse engineering as well as control measurements.

We from transfluid® were, of course, also happy to share our knowledge and presented the path from pipe geometry to the finished product among other things. Specifically, this concerned the latest machine technology, available equipment versions and efficient possibilities of chaining. In addition, we presented software solutions in pipe bending technology, which enable collision-free production, for example, and also went into detail on the mega-trend Industry 4.0 in a separate presentation. One thing is for sure: The future belongs to software-controlled workflow optimisation.

Ever shorter series run times and product cycles, strong fluctuations in quantities, the economic and competitive production of small batches and single pieces – these are also the crucial impulse generators and technology drivers which the pipe processing is currently facing. During our joint tour through the transfluid® halls, our visitors were able to see for themselves how we meet these challenges with solutions for practical use.

We would like to thank all the participants for a really successful event, the inspiring presentations and the in-depth exchange of information. With a view towards 2018, we are looking forward to our next Innovation Days and will continue to advance the progress of pipe processing for our customers.
