The PM and PMPA Relationship

PMTS is one reason for the association between PM and PMPA.

The PM and the Precision Machined Products Association (PMPA) relationship runs deeper than PMPA’s section in the monthly issues of PM. Production Machining helps promote the benefits of PMPA membership, and in turn, PMPA helps PM build strong relationships within the industry that contribute to article ideas and the knowledge needed to write these articles. Attending PMPA conference sessions also assists the PM staff in gaining a better understanding of hot topics in the industry.

PMPA, an international trade association with most members located in North America, has represented the precision machined products industry since 1933. It consists of industry experts who, with their PMPA membership, have access to a range of programs and services designed to help them meet challenges and focus on new business opportunities. Not only are there local and national events and networking opportunities hosted by PMPA and scheduled on a regular basis, but there are information resources such as email listserves, and online information via PMPA.org on environmental, safety, quality and regulatory issues, and more.

The upcoming Precision Machining Technology Show (PMTS), held biennially, is another reason for the association between PM and PMPA. More than 150 exhibitors will be displaying their products at this year’s show in Columbus, Ohio, on April 21-23. PM is one of the show’s co-presenters. If you haven’t already, register online now.
