Record attendance at DMG/Mori Seiki USA event
- May 20, 2013
More than 3200 visitors from more than 10 countries attended the DMG/Mori Seiki USA Innovation Days May 7-10, held at the company's US headquarters in Hoffman Estates, IL.
The record attendance is a 45 per cent increase from 2012.
In its ninth year now, the event has grown popular among manufacturers, including those from Canada, because of the event's substance and consistency, says Randy Harland, executive vice president of sales for the company. “People know they can come here and see changes in manufacturing processes from each year to the next, so we get a lot of repeat customers coming back and also spreading the word that this is the place to be,” says Harland.
In addition to the premiere of several machine tools, the event was a platform to introduce a gear milling technology advancement, the InvoMilling process, a new machining technique that allows faster, more efficient production of spur and helical gears in multi-tasking machines and machining centres, claims the company.
