The Berliner Runde is postponed!
The current developments around SARS CoV-2 have prompted us to take this step.
The 15th Berliner Runde will take place on 18 and 19 March 2021.
With the aim of presenting innovative machine concepts in the field of machine tool engineering and promoting the exchange of knowledge between industry and research, the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Systems and Design Technology IPK in cooperation with the Institute for Machine Tools and Factory Operation IWF organizes the annual Berlin Machine Tool Colloquium "Berliner Runde".
Announcement 15th Berliner Runde
New concepts for machine tools - Performance, high performance, top performance - what does the future hold?
The 15th Berliner Runde will take place on 18 and 19 March 2021 at the Produktionstechnisches Zentrum Berlin. In order to withstand the competitive pressure of shorter time-to-market with short product life cycles, a constant improvement in the productivity of machining systems is necessary. In its 15th edition, the Berliner Runde - the leading forum for machine tool manufacturers, suppliers and users - will therefore focus on the potential and challenges of high-performance machining. Topics include the development of new tools and machining strategies as well as the development of hybrid machining systems with maximum dynamic performance and integrated sensor technology. These allow for highest accuracies down to the nanometer range, which is particularly relevant for the production of optical systems. The components involved in the process are operated at their performance limits due to the greatly increased requirements, which is why safety-relevant topics are also brought into focus.
The 15th Berliner Runde will take place on 18 and 19 March 2021 as a "lunch-to-lunch" event.

Review 14th Berliner Runde 2019
Machine tools for micro and macro machining in the field of tension between accuracy and productivity
At the 14th Berliner Runde, 13 renowned speakers from industry and research presented current and future developments in machine tool construction under the main topic "Machine tools for micro and macro machining in the area of conflict between accuracy and productivity". The 120 participants also had the opportunity to inform themselves about current trends and innovations in the industry at the industrial exhibition.
