Walter Teams with Starrag for Turbine Technology Days 2017

Over 200 experts from 19 countries came to the Walter/Starrag Turbine Technology Days.

Walter teamed up with machine builder Starrag AG (Rorschacherberg, Switzerland) to take a step into the future. The venue was the fifth annual Turbine Technology Days. Held at Starrag headquarters in Rorschacherberg, the event attracted over 200 visitors from 19 countries. It focused specifically on ways to make turbine production even more productive and reliable, and beyond that on developments in machining and control technology that are changing both turbine production and manufacturing in general.

"Turbine production is attracting considerable attention lately, in part because the aviation industry is experiencing a boom, and the power generation sector is also experiencing increasing demand for gas turbines. The consequences: OEMs and suppliers must increase their production while machine builders are being called on to meet higher quality criteria, all while facing increased competition due to globalization," said a company spokesperson.

For Walter and Starrag, the aerospace and energy sectors are strategic business areas in which they are developing application-specific solutions in partnership with their customers.

Mirko Merlo, CEO of Walter AG, said, "Digital solutions are the future of modern machining. It is no longer just about turning, milling, drilling and threading. Perfection and precision are basic requirements. Walter presented solutions that are more than just tools. Tailored and efficient processes are important prerequisites for this."

For Starrag CEO Walter Börsch, this application-specific approach is the key to making leaps in productivity, which subsequently improve competitiveness. "We have extensive process expertise, which includes machine, tool and device technology, as well as software and control technology. This allows us to not only offer machines, but also complete production systems that are precisely tailored to meet customers' requirements and guarantee maximum benefits."

Working together, Starrag and Walter designed 14 stations that used practical examples to illustrate these opportunities. In addition to machining examples, Starrag and Walter also demonstrated the diverse potential improvements that can be gained through digitalization and modern software.
