Dresden Machine Elements Colloquium DMK 2024

May 14 and 15, 2024


Digitalization is at the heart of modern industry, including mechanical engineering, where it is optimizing processes, increasing efficiency and ushering in a new era of production. By networking machine elements and sensors, real-time data can be provided to make informed decisions and improve maintenance and production planning.

We invite you to attend the Dresden Machine Elements Colloquium (DMK 2024) on May 14 and 15, 2024 to hear about the latest developments in the fields of machine elements and drive technology on the one hand and sensor technology and artificial intelligence on the other. In particular, the combination of classic machine elements with state-of-the-art sensor technology to form the "sensor-integrating machine element" is not only being addressed by researchers at TU Dresden, but nine other universities in Germany have also been working on this topic since 2022 as part of a larger priority program of the German Research Foundation (DFG).

DMK 2024 offers you the opportunity to find out about the most advanced approaches shaping our industry - from the integration of intelligent sensors to increase efficiency to the opportunities that digitalization offers for optimizing production processes and developing intelligent machines. Thanks to the wide range of offers from industry and science, you can choose from an interesting conference program with 48 presentations from the field of machine elements and drive technology, which should provide all participants with suggestions for using proven solutions and the latest developments across industries and disciplines. Parallel to the presentations, an accompanying exhibition will be held in the foyer of the conference rooms at the Hyperion Hotel Dresden am Schloss.

DMK 2024 will not only present innovative solutions and technologies, but also provide a platform for exchanging ideas with leading experts and making valuable contacts. We invite you to take this opportunity to expand your expertise and gain insights into the future of mechanical engineering.

We are all very much looking forward to seeing you there and meeting you in person!
