At this year’s technology meeting, WFL Millturn Technologies set a new visitor record. On 4,000 m2 of exhibition space, live cutting on all machine types and the latest automation and software solutions were shown. Fascinating evening events at the Ars Electronica Center Linz and the Stadlerhof Wilhering provided a perfect setting for the trade fair program.
Compared to the Technology Meeting 2017, the number of visitors to this year’s in-house exhibition rose by almost 20 percent – a great result for the machine tool manufacturer in Linz. Most of the guests travelled from Austria, Germany and the neighbouring countries. Chinese, American, Brazilian and Arabian trade fair participants mainly took up wide travel routes.
Above all, the visitors were enthusiastic about the variety of editing options offered by WFL. Customers can rely on the high-quality technical and technological expertise of WFL employees, especially for complex work pieces. Manufacturers from a wide variety of industries travelled from near and far to discuss the optimum technical possibilities for their production tasks at WFL. Especially in the fields of measurement technology, digitization and automation, visitors showed great interest in the future of machining technologies.
A wide range was presented not only during the day, also the evening program had a lot to offer. On Tuesday, under the motto “Tech Night” at the Ars Electronica Center in Linz, a guided tour through the museum and an impressive space show in Deep Space were organized. At a dinner on the top floor and pleasant jazz music, the guests could enjoy the view of the Danube and the beautifully lit Linz. The second evening was traditionally celebrated under the title “Austrian Night” in a square courtyard in Wilhering. In addition to an interesting quiz, great winner prizes and atmospheric music, the guests could experience a unique evening with classic Austrian delicacies.
We are already looking forward to the next WFL Technology Meeting 2021!
