Taking place April 25-27, the biennial Precision Machining Trade Show (PMTS) will again feature live equipment demonstrations.
Trade shows consistently rank highly as a method for discovering new products and researching purchasing decisions in the annual Media Usage survey conducted by Gardner Business Media (publisher of Modern Machine Shop). For attendees in any stage of the buying cycle, trade shows offer the chance to speak with suppliers in person, ask questions and see the equipment up close. At some shows, like the upcoming Precision Machining Technology Show (PMTS), visitors may also get a chance to see that equipment in use.
Taking place April 25-27 at the Greater Columbus Convention Center (Columbus, Ohio), PMTS 2017 will offer eight show-floor demonstrations. Interested attendees can see equipment in action and ask questions of presenters and the other experts available.
Demonstrations that have been announced include:
A new machine model introduced by ZPS America, Wickman and Cucchi that combines a full CNC multispindle with FANUC controls and an integrated Pietro Cucchi bar loader;
Workholding solutions from Hardinge for reduced setup/delivery times, accuracy and flexibility; and
Hydromat’s next-generation EPIC II rotary transfer machine line with an upgraded servo control and integrated tool monitoring.
