Our participation from 11th to 14th of November
FABTECH is – similar to our German Hanover exhibition – the biggest industrial fair in the USA. But in difference to the Hanover exhibition, the location in the USA is annually changing and this year the temporary home of the exhibitors and visitors had been on the Mc Cormick exhibition court in the south of Chicago.
The unexpected onset of winter (exactly on time of Monday morning’s exhibition start the thermometer was showing minus 11 degrees Celsius) did not deter the people from visiting the exhibition and indeed there was a new visitor record of 49 000 people from 95 countries marveling the technical innovations of round about 1700 international exhibitors.
In a close cooperation with the AWS (American Welding Society) the NIMAK USA team arranged all necessary preparations and rent a common stand with our partner, the company BRÄUER in the “Welding & Finishing” area. This was the right place for representing our exhibits containing of a C-welding gun, the a.tronNEX dosing unit as well as the BRÄUER combi-unit (KAPPOSTAR).
The whole exhibition team agrees that our participation was a great success! The visitors were truly experts, especially from the business sector production, welding, automation and automotive and we were able to get in touch with a lot of interesting potential customers. Obviously we welcomed also a lot of long-term customers and were glad to receive their confirmation about the high quality of our exposed welding gun “close enough to touch”.
