The Virtual Wire Experience (VWE) was developed especially for the Customer Services area of GF Machining Solutions’ booth (Hall 27, Stand B24) at EMO Hannover 2017, September 18–23, in Hannover, Germany. Wearing a virtual reality headset in order to experience full immersion in the VR setting, each VWE player will experience GF Machining Solutions’ wide array of wires to advance cost efficiency, speed, productivity and quality. At the end of each of the six days of EMO, the player with the day’s top score will receive a personally inscribed cup trophy. From the six winners, one grand prize will be awarded: a Samsung Galaxy S8 smartphone with touch display with a Samsung Gear VR headset with controller.
The VWE is designed to allow players to experience the benefits of GF Machining Solutions’ certified wires—including AC CUT AH/G, AC CUT VS 900+, AC CUT VH and AC Brass 900—and how they can add new intelligence to their wire EDM processes by using Customer Services’ SMART wire.
