LVD North America launches INNOV8 and Innovation TourClick image to enlarge

LVD North America has announced its INNOV8 program and its Innovation Tour mobile roadshow.

The INNOV8 program offers fabricators in-person and virtual avenues to connect with technology and industry experts, informational resources, purchasing incentives, and more to support their sheet metalworking operations.

The program enables fabricators to experience new products and technology, see equipment demonstrations, learn from product experts and talk applications. It eliminates the burdens associated with trade show exhibitions, including cost, travel inconvenience and time commitment. Fabricators can choose how, when and to what level of detail they want to learn about fabrication technology.

The LVD Innovation Tour is one element of the program—a mobile roadshow that launches October 4, 2021 and will travel to fabrication shops across the US. The tour features a 46-foot customized truck that brings solutions directly to fabricators in a unique, interactive experience.  

The tour provides hands-on experience with the Dyna-Press Pro electric press brake, Easy-Form Laser adaptive bending system and CADMAN software, and showcases a variety of LVD products in virtual sessions. On-hand LVD tech experts demonstrate the machinery, discuss applications and answer questions. Visitors have access to special offers and other giveaways, including roadshow-branded merchandise and entry into a grand prize draw for a trip to LVD’s headquarters in Belgium.
