Walter has opened a new Technology Center at its Tübingen, Germany, worldwide headquarters. The 16,400 square-foot center combines the functions of an interactive experience center and a research facility. Customers from around the world can collaborate on future solutions. 

The Walter Technology Center illustrates that the digital factory of the future is a reality--production, logistics, engineering, control and management processes are digitally connected and can 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," says Holger Langhans, director of Walter Multiply.

The Walter Technology Center is equipped with the latest processing and communication technology. Thanks to live broadcasts from the machine hall, staff at all Walter distributors can 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.
