Masa Tool was very excited to participate in in Productivity Inc's 18th Oktoberfest Tool Show. It was our first time that we had a display at the marvelous facility and marked the launch of our new partnership with a very technically oriented machinery dealer/Industrial Distributor! Our new agents in the area, High Tech Industrial, did a tremendous job of coordinating our show set-up and introducing us to some really knowledgable machine shop people.
The show featured over 60 quality tooling and accessories suppliers of which Masa Tool was a small part... that is, we where talking about small parts!
Over 3,100 people got a glimpse of the latest metalcuttingand workholding products, services and related technologies. Productivity hosted 12 seminars that included titles like Understanding Toolholder Dynamics and the Spindle Interface, Zero Downtime Initiative (ZDT) for Robotic Systems, End Milling for Greater Productivity and High Speed Tapping and Threadmilling.
For us, one of the most exciting things was that we met over 60 machine shop owners and CNC operators who gave us some great feedback. We where awed at the excitement that our peers had about seeing our Microconic system of the first time. "This is exactly what we've been looking for!" and "I've needed this for years!" where some of the best feedback we had and we really do appreciate so many kinds words.
STEM students are our future
One of the things that impressed us the most was that 29 schools attended the show's Student Day event. Getting the next generation of innovators to take an interest in engineering is something that we always encourage and it was a pleasure to meet so many STEM oriented students.
"Productivity Inc. leads the way, not only by providing innovative solutions for manufacturing, but also by looking into the future of the machine tool industry introducing tomorrow's manufacturing professionals to new technologies in the machining and tooling industries is an important step in that journey. True to that commitment, Productivity sponsors a day just for students to come in and see metalworking at its best," said a company spokesperson. With a shortfall of manufacturing workers, this day allowed about 1,000 high school and vo-tech students to discover the possibilities in manufacturing and see the abundance of jobs available in this industry.
