MetalForming Delivers FABTECH

November 11-13, 2014

Georgia World Congress Center
Atlanta, GA

North America's largest metalforming, fabricating, welding and finishing event lands in Atlanta, November 11-13, at the beautiful Georgia World Congress Center. More than 1400 exhibitors occupying in excess of 500,000 sq. ft. of space will welcome some 27,000 attendees.

The ATL was once referred to as the "Chicago of the South," for its "new men, new industries, new buildings and new spirit." That reference will ring true in November when the future of the metalforming industry is on display at FABTECH 2014.

Prima Power Servo-Electric
eP Press Brake, Booth B2725


The servo-electric eP-Series press brake is a fast, accurate, non-hydraulic bending solution. This innovative concept maximizes productivity & accuracy, and reduces setup time. The need for crowning and the effects of frame deflection are eliminated. It provides sustainability with manufacturing efficiency, greater versatility, lower power consumption, and less maintenance.

In addition to the 1400-plus booths and more than 100 education sessions that comprise FABTECH, attendees are invited to attend several special events. The first such event occurs Tuesday morning, November 11, from 9:00 to 10:00—a presentation by Cindy Marsiglio, vice president, U.S. manufacturing for Walmart. Her talk, Creating U.S. Jobs and Bringing Manufacturing Home, focuses on the need to "rebuild the middle class and provide customers with the best possible prices and quality." That’s a theme that should ring true for all FABTECH attendees.

Last but not least, y'all listen up now and plan to take a few minutes to stop by the booth of the Precision Metalforming Association and MetalForming magazine, B1553. We'll look forward to seeing you!
