An event to encourage equipment suppliers and academics to develop automated remanufacturing processes with the reman industry is to be held near Trier, Germany, on 20 March 2019.

The symposium, organised by Fernand Weiland and Professor Dr. Wolfgang Gerke, will bring together engineers and managers involved in optimising, planning and developing reman processes. It follows a similar event at Alec’s HQ (pictured). Best practice around reman with automated and robotised processes will be shared by suppliers of robots and automation equipment, as well as researchers who are examining new applications. In addition, a series of lectures and demonstrations will examine topics such as: remanufacturing based on robotics, human/robot collaboration and industry 4.0. ReMaTecNews is delighted to be media partner for the event.

“The previous workshop at the premises of Alec in Munich was a success,” says co-organiser Fernand Weiland. “We were encouraged to organise a symposium on automated and robotised remanufacturing. Whilst we focused last time on automotive we would like to include for this event also non-automotive players. We have already managed to receive support from universities and suppliers of automation equipment suppliers.” 

The symposium will be held at the environmental campus of Trier University of Applied Sciences, on 20-21 March, 2019. For more information please visit www.
