On November 9, 2022, Seco Tools and selected partners will host the hybrid live event, Automotive & General Engineering Inspiration Through Innovation (ITI). Machining demonstration sessions as well as expert presentations will introduce the latest solutions for automotive manufacturing and general engineering. Hosted physically in the new Innovation Hub in Erkrath near Düsseldorf, Germany, the German Auto ITI program will be streamed live online. In addition, an English stream will be available sharing highlights and interviews from the live German event.

First ITI event focusing on automotive and general engineering
As part of the successful ITI event series launched in the U.K. in 2014, this is the first ITI focusing on manufacturing of automotive components. Past events have demonstrated the value of collaboration in the pursuit of innovation in the medical and aerospace sectors. This new addition to the ITI series will be hosted from the Seco Tools Innovation Hub in Erkrath. The new center for developments and innovations enables tests of machining processes for non-standard solutions. These are accomplished in close collaboration with customers and manufacturing partners.

Collaboration for innovative solutions
Seco Tools will host the Automotive & General Engineering ITI in cooperation with selected partners such as machine tool manufacturers, suppliers and companies from the fields of coolant technology, CAD/CAM programming, measuring technology, additive manufacturing and related service providers. Together, they will illustrate the outstanding benefits of international, collaborative partnerships in the development of innovative machining solutions.
