Unmatched value. Unlimited opportunity.
Our commitment is to continually adjust and modify our approach to address the most up-to-date needs of OEMs, suppliers, and manufacturing professionals. This is why the MT Series of regional events remains a unique opportunity to speak face-to-face with manufacturing practitioners looking for innovative solutions to their most difficult manufacturing challenges.
New Focus on Emerging Technologies
Manufacturing practitioners attend the MT Series regional events (HOUSTEX, EASTEC, SOUTHTEC, WESTEC) to look for manufacturing innovations that will help them cut costs and improve producibility.
For example, Tap Test Technology and chatter detection; QIF (Quality Information Framework) and ML/AI tools; and Visualization during the Additive print process and its association with critical areas are some of the technologies we will highlight in our Emerging Technologies Gallery Showcase during 2023.
Today, everything is driven by data; it intersects with the product life cycle of the entire manufacturing enterprise. Digital manufacturing uses software that can take 3D models and automatically generate all the work instructions, send designs to the floor, feed the information into manuals for the field, and communicate with virtualization software to produce a simulation before you produce one part.
With massive parallel computing capability that can capture all the streaming data from these intelligent machines, we have to ask (and answer): What do you do with the data you collect? We’ll examine how to use the data to improve product development, technologies and processes, and how digital manufacturing can link across disciplines.
The SME ZONE
At the center of it all is The ZONE—the “main stage” of the event floor and host to Keynotes, panel discussions, networking, and other events. Planned or unplanned, networking at The ZONE can strengthen current relationships and start new ones.
The SME ZONE provides an intimate setting where one-on-one conversations regularly occur during panel discussions or keynote Q&As, and our guest speakers answer attendee questions on the spot. This kind of interactive participation is not possible at larger events—just another reason the MT Series is so unique.
Don't Miss the Opportunity to Reach Your Market
The extended manufacturing enterprise is diverse and complex. It’s also ready—ready to embrace the future. That’s why these regional events are so important. As your partner, our goal is to put the brightest minds, the latest technologies and the businesses that need them in the same room so they can start the conversations that will define the future of advanced manufacturing.
