"I need your clothes, your boots and your motorcycle."
If the Terminator had arrived at the Delcam booth at EMO2015, he would have been pretty pleased. Not only would he have found all the gear he wanted — sunglasses from sunglass manufacturer Safilo , the amazing Cagiva MV Augusta F3 superbike, and the latest footwear from Crocs — but as a cyborg, he’d have been pretty impressed by what his fellow machines had created.
The superbike’s advanced braking systems were manufactured by Brembo, using Delcam manufacturing software, and if the Terminator fancied a change of wheels he needn’t go far, with Italian manufacturer BCN also showcasing its high performance Fondmetal alloy wheels on the stand.
As he strolled around the HSMWorks and Delcam booths at the world’s biggest machining tool event in Milan last week he may also have nodded in appreciation of the high end parts showcased and manufactured by NU.TE.CO who construct composites, moulds and models for some of the most famous sports car manufacturers, such as Lamborghini. Or been inspired to take back to the future with him some of the advanced aerospace components made by Merletti Aerospace.
In a quiet moment of reflection perhaps he’d dream of relaxing days cruising in the Lifetime kayak on display, or just while away a few minutes watching the live demonstration of the 5 axis machining of a Rudy project Windmax cycle helmet.
Hopefully, like all those who visited the show and saw what Autodesk, Delcam and their customers had to say about the future of manufacturing and the machine tooling industry, he’ll be back… next year.
