Alexander Tyurin, lead designer of the Vladimir Machine Tool Plant, spoke about the products of the plant. In his presentation he drew attention to the modular principles of creating precision machines for external and internal grinding, grinding machines for external and internal threading, special machines for grinding, drilling, cutting, etc. "By creating complex precision machines to solve specific tasks faced by companies, we are actually replacing the machines of leading foreign firms, competing with them in terms of performance, accuracy and cost," said the speaker.

Andrey Kostenko, Deputy Director of Balt-Systems, presented a report on "Solutions for application of Balt-Systems products for various types of equipment and machines". He spoke about new applications of CNC systems for machine tools.

New technologies and promising ideas were also shared by heads of such machine tool plants and enterprises as PKF Stankoservice OOO, Ryazan Machine Tool Association, STP-SASTA, Stankozavod TBS, StankoMashStroy, Blum-Novotest, Lipetsk Machine Tool Plant, BARUFFALDI Spa (Italy), ChelyabNIIKontrol. They informed their colleagues about lathes for machining long parts, the production of machines with operational control systems on the example of innovative SMART lathes and milling machines, the companies' achievements in CNC automatic inspection, multifunctional measuring instruments and systems for dimensional control in metalworking and much more.
