VMAP Community

The VMAP Standards Community e.V. hosted its first ever VMAP User Meeting 2024 (14-15 Feb. 2024) at Schloss Birlinghoven, Sankt Augustin. We saw participation from more than 35 professionals coming from various industrial domains, like standardization, software vendors and OEMs.

Pedro Catarino presented European Federation for Welding, Joining and Cutting (EWF), standards related with its activities, projects RESTORE - Sustainable Remanufacturing/METAFACTURING and the potential use of the VMAP Standard for the use cases.

The event was a great opportunity to showcase the initial progress of these projects to a community of professionals.

A special thanks to Fraunhofer SCAI for organizing the event, with heartfelt thanks to Klaus Wolf and Priyanka Gulati for their efforts.
