Walter Opens New Technology Center at Worldwide Headquarters

To help its customers unlock the power of digital technology and the Smart Factory, Walter has opened a new Technology Center at its Tübingen, Germany, worldwide headquarters.

The 16,400 sq. ft. center combines the functions of an interactive experience center and a research facility. Customers, partners and staff from around the world will now be able to collaborate on future solutions. "Our customers today expect reliable, customized processes. In the new Walter Technology Center, they can help to shape the development of their machining processes in real time," said Mirko Merlo, Chairman of Walter AG.

"The Walter Technology Center provides an innovative environment, encouraging the development of solutions that go beyond just tools," said a company spokesperson. "In this practical setting, the digital factory of the future is becoming a reality - production, logistics, engineering, control and management processes are digitally connected and will be able to communicate with one another in real time using an application platform."

Customers can watch the tools, machining processes and digital applications live and can try them out. In this futuristic factory, Walter will collaborate with customers to create and optimize prototypes for real-world applications.

Walter calls this "real life engineering." "The Technology Center interactively demonstrates process and tool solutions. Using new types of functions, networking the intelligent systems and other innovations will permanently change how we think and work with customers," said Holger Langhans, Director of Walter Multiply.

The Walter Technology Center is equipped with the latest processing and communication technology. Due to live broadcasts from the machine hall, staff at all Walter distributors will be able to take part in global training sessions. The spacious auditorium, which is equipped with the latest presentation technology and can seat up to 200 people, will host expert conferences and customer events.
