The 2017 Third Wave Systems European Users Conference was the first TWS-hosted conference in Europe in several years and the return of the conference was well received by those who attended.

There were more than 30 attendees from nine different countries who attended the conference to hear presentations from Third Wave Systems, its partners ISBE GmbH and iWFT Rheinische Fachhochschule Köln, and its users, to educate attendees on how they apply TWS software to their machining processes.

In addition to the presentations, TWS held a workshop at the beginning of the conference that provided examples of how AdvantEdge and Production Module work and concluded with a case study by OSG that showed how the two software packages work together to achieve optimal machining results.

On Tuesday evening, the conference went offsite for dinner and drinks at Carls Brauhaus in the Stuttgart city-center.

TWS would like to thank all of our attendees and partners for a great 2017 European Users Conference! As soon as we have information about another European conference, we will let you know.
