NC programmers, CXOs, plant managers, and production team members from around the world convened last week in Michigan for the annual Third Wave Systems International Users Conference: a global gathering of the best minds in machining.
“In this room is the future of machining modeling,” Third Wave Systems CEO, Kerry Marusich, said at the welcome reception. “All of us here this week are leaders in the ongoing transformation to a fully-integrated digital analysis chain and by the end of this conference we will have taken a giant step forward to realizing that bold, innovative vision.”
From the start, the user’s conference was focused on how to continue driving bold innovation through the industry to accelerate the time-to-market of new products. Highlights from the three-day gathering featured:
NETWORKING AMONGST THE INDUSTRY LEADERS
With all the industry’s leaders together in one conference room, the sharing of ideas, success stories, and insights was constant.
DEEP DIVES INTO NEW PRODUCTS
The new gold standards of machining modeling were introduced: AdvantEdge v8.0 and Production Module v8.8. The new technologies enable industry leaders to uncover machining insights easier, create designs faster, and completely transform their business.
JUST PLAIN FUN
From fast-paced innovation contests to machining Jeopardy and even venturing into the Third Wave Systems Shark Tank, the conference was unlike any other–with time devoted to simply having fun with peers.
