Imperial Systems goes to Fabtech Chicago

Dec 20, 2017

Fabtech is an annual metal forming, welding, and fabricating convention. It has some of the biggest names in the metalworking industry from all over the world displaying their new technology and equipment. Everything from robotics and welding to paint.

FABTECH is more than just a tradeshow.  Sure, this is our largest exhibit every year, but going to Fabtech offers us so much more.  Every year brings new technology, new machines, and new trends in the fabrication industry.  Fabtech gives our staff not only the ability to sell but also to see, learn, and try something new.  This year FABTECH was in Chicago at the center of our country’s metal manufacturing industry.  This year there were 1,700 exhibits and the event was attended by roughly 45,000 attendees from 120 different countries.

Much of the equipment that is sold at FABTECH may be considered “glamorous” or at least looks that way at these beautiful booths.  What is behind many of those booths is what allows those machines to operate: a dust or fume collector.  It is hard to show what our equipment does so we just went big for our exhibit to show the quality and craftsman ship that goes into the best dust collector in the industry.


FABTECH is not just work.  At times, we even got out to enjoy the city of Chicago.  We got to dine at some world class restaurants, taste some of what many consider to be the best pizza available anywhere in the world, and a few of us even went to the SkyDeck at the top of Willis Tower.  We had an amazing show this year and hope you all can stop next year in Atlanta November 6-8 at the Georgia World Congress Center.
