FABTECH Chicago is this year’s metal forming, welding, and fabricating convention. It has some of the biggest names in the metalworking industry from all over the world. They display their new technology and equipment for everything from robotics and welding to painting.
FABTECH Chicago: More Than Just a Tradeshow
Sure, this is our largest exhibit every year, but going to FABTECH offers us so much more. That’s because every year brings new technology, new machines, and new trends to 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 is at the center of our country’s metal manufacturing industry. There were 1,700 exhibits with roughly 45,000 attendees from 120 different countries.
Much of the equipment for sale at FABTECH Chicago may be considered “glamorous.” At least they look that way in 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 craftsmanship that goes into CMAXX, the best dust collector in the industry.
FABTECH Chicago is not just about working the show. 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 on November 6-8 at the Georgia World Congress Center.
