On 14-15 November 2018, the 2nd ModuleWorks Insider Conference (MIC) 2018 took place at the Tivoli Stadium in Aachen, Germany. The modern and beautiful location offered the perfect setting for enjoying the fascinating presentations and steering the roadmaps for the future development of the ModuleWorks components.
After welcoming the guests to the MIC 2018, two full days of presentations about the latest CAM features, 5-axis machining, additive processes and machine simulations got underway. A highlight of this year’s conference was the key note speeches by invited guest speakers from Siemens PLM Software, Huron Graffenstaden and Sandvik Coromant who shared their experience and knowledge on AGILE development processes, the benefits of job setup data for collision avoidance strategies and how tool designs and CAM algorithms need to work together. The three insightful presentations added a special touch to the event.
In addition to expert presentations, the specialized workshops enabled participants to go into greater detail on specific topics such as 3-axis and 5-axis machining and simulation.
There was also a Lab Area, where visitors were able to learn extensively about our research projects and developments and how ModuleWorks toolpath and simulation technology benefits industries beyond the classical CAD/CAM and CNC markets. Another highlight was the possibility to hold 1:1 meetings in the football stadium’s exclusive VIP Lounge.
To take some time out between the sessions, there were fun activities like table football, a photo booth and slot car bikes. In the evening, a delicious dinner was served with another special highlight as dessert: A chocolate fountain with local Lindt chocolate. The opening of the cocktail bar completed the eventful day.
In summary, the MIC 2018 was a fantastic opportunity for networking and discussing important developments in the industry and the ModuleWorks technology. It was a great event with a positive atmosphere that was boosted by the special highlights.
Thanks to all participants, we hope to see you again at the next MIC in spring 2020.
