North America’s largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event heads to the Las Vegas Convention Center on November 16-18 to provide a convenient ‘one stop shop’ venue for meeting with world-class suppliers, seeing the latest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing products and developments, and finding the tools you need to improve productivity, increase profits and discover new solutions to all of your needs. Here is some of the equipment that will be exhibited in the Forming & Fabricating pavilion:
Co-Moving Laser Safety Up to the Clamp Point on Press Brakes
The new AKAS 3-P system from Press Brake Safety uses a 3D safety laser beam grid beneath the ram to safely operate a press brake at high speeds.
Sophisticated, Highly Flexible Fiber Laser Cutting
The new L3-30 fiber laser from Salvagnini now comes equipped with an air-cooled cutting head with adjustable optics for cutting both thin and thick materials.
Heavy Duty Metal Fabrication Solutions
Hydraulic ironworkers, circular cold saws, band saws, tube and pipe notcher/grinders, manual measuring systems and programmable feed and stop systems from Scotchman Industries meet the most challenging metal fabrication needs.
Advanced CNC Bending Roll Solutions
SweBend bending rolls from Trilogy Machinery use the Seven CNC control or a wireless hand-held Bluetooth control unit that allows the operator to view the rolling operation from any position without restriction.
Versatile Ironworkers, Saws
New ironworkers, a new vertical tilt-frame and a horizontal mitering saw from Marvel Manufacturing improve operating productivity and part quality.
Innovative Caliper Set, Automating Ironworker Operations
The TigerSPC caliper set from TigerStop easily measures parts up to 16 ft.
Unparalleled Productivity in Sheet Metal Bending
TRUMPF features the TruBend Series 5000 that comes equipped with a new On-Demand Servo Drive with 4-cylinder drive technology.
Unison Ups Product Support Scope, Accessibility with ‘UltimateCare’
The rebranded service program facilitates selection of the right maintenance solutions, and also offers additional services such as CAD modellng, component prototyping and process optimization. Customers can choose services ala-carte or in tailored, bundled agreements.
Paperless Parts Launches Search Function to Expedite Quoting
Paperless Search, a digital search tool enhancing the quoting platform from Paperless Parts, provides easy access to all formats of historical data, and it’s available now to Paperless Parts customers.
In Development: New Laser System Creates Grease-Repellent Metal Surfaces
Funded by an EU grant, a European consortium is treating metal with high-power lasers that texture the surface with microscopic spikes that prevent grease and bacteria from sticking. Rough micro-topography acts like a bed of nails to stop dirt or liquid from attaching.
