    EMO Hanover: Fair Friend Group presents innovative manufacturing

    Eislingen/Germany, June 20, 2023 – with digitalization, intelligent services, energy resource efficiency and a focus toward climate-neutral manufacturing at the top of the industrial agenda we introduce “Innovate Manufacturing”.

    • Product innovation is showcased across 20 brands at our 1300 m2 booth at Hall 12.
    • Excellence in mechanical engineering for the automotive, rail transport, aerospace, and aviation industries
    • Groundbreaking exhibits and presentations from the fields of electromobility, digitalization, and services


    Creating value chain

    At the FFG booth, visitors can experience the fine art of mechanical engineering firsthand at numerous exhibits. Best-practice examples from different industries provide lasting impressions of successful use cases. From horizontal 5-axis machining centers to vertical grinding machines and automatic CNC lathes: FFG Group encompasses 20 product brands which will showcase a broad portfolio of solutions that can be used to completely map value chains. Standard systems for turning, milling, grinding, and gear cutting support individual manufacturing processes, while turnkey and ready-to-use complete systems support the industrialization of production in new plants.

    Realization of data capture

    Today, professional evaluation of available data plays an important role in any production planning. Engineers and simulation experts at FFG ensure full integration into the customer's production planning systems at an early stage in the engineering phase.

    Using state of the art software and 3D design data a „PROCESS TWIN“ is created. The result a visual insight into production processes and customer-specific details where we can easily identify inefficiencies in either the machining or overall system design. The digital product twin is generated on the basis of the 3D design data and visualizes the technical specifications and the design of the machines. Only the combination of 3D product data and machine data can result in a fully-fledged digital plant twin – FFG's booth at EMO will demonstrate state of the art Industry 4.0.
