Leading theme of the AWK 2023 Copyright: © AWK

The Aachen Machine Tool Colloquium (AWK) is both a network meeting and an information hub. Participants from a wide range of disciplines traditionally exchange ideas on the production of tomorrow every three years in Aachen.

"Empower Green Production" - This was the motto of the 31st AWK, which took place as a hybrid event at the Aachen Eurogress on May 11 and 12, 2023. Solution approaches for a value-adding circular economy that supports companies in meeting global emission and climate targets: More than 1200 experts and managers from around 360 companies responded to the call of RWTH Aachen University’s Machine Tool Laboratory WZL and the Fraunhofer Institute for Production Technology IPT to attend the 31st AWK at the Aachen Eurogress. The aim of the two-day conference was to learn from each other and discuss how the manufacturing industry can make its products more durable and its business models more independent of global uncertainties.
