Going to open houses is a great way to meet people and make connections, and learn about the technology of the industry. Attending one with Chris Koepfer, editor-in-chief of PM, is a surefire way to accomplish both.

Gosigerfest, an open house for Gosiger Automation, was held Sept. 20 through Sept. 21. The event, put on by the family-owned and operated machine tool distributor manufacturing solutions provider, was held in Dayton, Ohio, where the company is based.

Held every two years, it featured German food, a polka band, and most importantly more than 25 of the latest CNC machine brands on display, including Bridgeport, Nomura, Okuma, and iFP parts washers. There were exhibits including live demos of Gosiger robotic automation systems, 5ME cryogenic machining on an Okuma five-axis machining center, Stataysys FDM (fused deposition modeling) model 3D printers, and three race cars. Presentations on the technologies, from such companies as Horn, Velocity, Koma, and Sandvik, were also a highlight.

Representatives from companies were on-hand and eager to explain their products. Many attendees weren't only from other publications, but shops, planning out their next purchases. With PM’s editor in chief as a guide, this labyrinthine event was easily navigated.
