The AICON 3D Forum 2017 – A Great Success!

15 March 2017

Exciting lectures, hands-on metrology and interesting discussions – as always, the response to our invitation to the IHK Braunschweig was great. It was the 17th AICON 3D Forum already!

As a keynote, Norbert Hanke, CEO at Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence, gave an insight into the factory of the future, the Smart Factory. A premiere in the history of the AICON 3D Forum followed: AICON’s managing director Robert Godding reported on news in 3D metrology and introduced the new portable camera-based CMM MoveInspect XR8.

The auditorium was well-filled, the expert session on successful applications were rich in variety.  Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence presented the various Leica Laser Trackers and their application in automotive industry, Airbus Helicopters demonstrated photogrammetric measurement of aircraft passenger doors, and Professor Hubert Mara from Heidelberg University took the audience on a virtual search: He talked about precise 3D forensics for cultural heritage. Schmehmann Rohrverformungstechnik GmbH gave an outlook on “Tube Bending 4.0: 3D metrology in the production of complex bent components for various industries”.

Even the breaks were actively used. The AICON engineers and external exhibitors offered live demonstrations and answered questions – the start for many discussions.

The AICON 3D Forum was held in German language. Please refer to our German website for more information.
