Machine Tools and Manufacturing Systems
Just under 280 members or about 10 per cent of the companies in the VDMA or voluntarily organised within this Sector Association. These companies represent 90 per cent of the total turnover on the sector and about 80 per cent of all machine tool builders.
The Specialized Section Machine Tools and Manufacturing Systems within the VDMA is an organisation of just under 280 voluntary members or about 10% of the companies in the VDMA. These companies represent 90% of the total turnover on the sector and about 80% of all machine tool builders in Germany.
The Specialized Section Machine Tools and Manufacturing Systems is tightly integrated in a national and European network. It cooperates very closely with the German Machine Tool Builders' Association (VDW) that itself has about 110 members. Further institutions are likewise closely associated with the specialised section and therefore round off the range of services:
the joint venture Laser within the VDMA
the forum Photonics within the VDMA
the working group Medical within the VDMA
the VDW Research Institute
the DIN standards committee for machine tools
The intensive dedication of almost 100 honorary staff from industry and science safeguards the field orientation of the association's work.
