See Absolute, Marubeni Citizen’s PMTS 2019 Showfloor Demos
Absolute will showcase B-axis mill-turn centers and multi-slide single-spindle machines, while Marubeni Citizen will demonstrate low-frequency vibration machining.
With everything that goes on in an exhibitor’s booth at a trade show, it can be difficult for attendees to see live demonstrations of the latest technology. PMTS has scheduled a number of opportunities for attendees to see equipment being demonstrated live in exhibitors’ booths, without other distractions like people asking for quotes, making connections or retrieving basic information on the technology.
On April 3 at 10:30 a.m., Greg Knight, VP of sales at Absolute Machine Tools, and Phillip Judt, applications engineer for Production Turning Points, will give a demo in Absolute’s booth (#3050) called, “When Swiss isn’t the Answer: Game-Changing Turning Platforms.” The presentation will show how parts from multi- and single-spindle screw machines and CNC Swiss-type lathes can be done more efficiently and economically on B-axis mill-turn centers and multi-slide single-spindle machines.
Brian Such, vice president of Marubeni Citizen’s customer support group, will be demonstrating how low-frequency vibration machining can improve part processing and quality, as well as engineered accessories from its R&D technologies group, including the L2000 laser machining and welding system. This presentation will take place April 3 at 11:30 a.m. in booth #6013.
Attend PMTS 2019, April 2-4, at the Huntington Convention Center of Cleveland, Cleveland, Ohio. For more information and to register, go to PMTS.com.
Hard turning can be a cost effective alternative for shops looking to streamline part processing.
