Virtual Masterclass arouses great interest
1 June 2021
2 successful online events are behind us, which we were able to hold together with our partners Tebis AG and FOOKE GmbH. The topics ranged from digital twins to the production of a vacuum clamping device made of polyurethane block material. Learn more about the highlights here.
Using the example of a CFRP wingshell, the production of a vacuum clamping
device from polyurethane block material and delamination-free cutting and
drilling of carbon fiber composite with special tools were demonstrated. Tebis
explained how to create a digital twin despite the lack of CAD data. The 45-
minute seminar sections, each separated by a half-hour break, were followed by
a lively round of questions and discussion.
"Our online events with partners have become an attractive way to bring
together more machining professionals on a topic than might be expected at an
in-house event. The participation right to the end and the queries showed how
interested the participants were in listening," says Heiko Simonis, Business
Development at Hufschmied Zerspanungssysteme GmbH and one of the
speakers. For example, people asked about experiences with other composite
materials, about the linear drives of the FOOKE Endura 715 and about reverse
engineering in Tebis. There were also very specific inquiries about cutting data
and ordering BlockBuster tools.
Holistic machining concept convinces
In their feedback, participants praised the compact form of the event, the
technical depth of the presentation and the competence of the speakers.
Andreas Rist from Huber Kunststoff & Technik GmbH, a mold and model maker
from Wiedergeltingen, said: "Since fiber composite technology is an important
part of our range of services, both parts of the Masterclass "Vacuum clamping
fixtures and CFRP component trimming, trim milling & drilling" were very
interesting for me. Hufschmied, Tebis and FOOKE did a good job of presenting
a practical example. Once again, it became clear to me that with Hufschmied,
we have an ideal partner for material- and process-optimized machining
solutions at our side. We have been allowed to benefit from the innovative and
promising solutions of the Hufschmied company for many years."
International version will follow
Following requests from abroad and the many positive responses, Hufschmied,
Tebis and Fooke plan to repeat the event in English. The presentations and
video summaries are now available to the public:
