2018 Manufacturing Advanced Expo

logo Northwestern PA Chapter of NTMA hosted the Manufacturing Advanced Expo on May 10th in Erie, PA with over 180 attendees.  The Northwest Industrial Resource Center (NWIRC) was a partner in hosting, and NEFF - Industrial Automation Distributors was the premier sponsor and instrumental in attracting many of the exhibitors to participate with the event. 

The purpose of the event was to showcase the latest shop floor automation, robotics, and manufacturing technology to regional manufacturers so they can see the equipment or applications first-hand and speak directly to company representatives in a smaller scale setting versus a much larger national show.   The Expo featured 40 exhibits, including collaborative robots, machine safety and energy saving solutions, as well as concurrent education sessions that were full-to-capacity the entire day.

Comments from Exhibitors;

“Thanks for a nicely run show!  Everything was well organized and executed.  It was certainly well attended so good exposure for us.”

“The show was great. I was very impressed and appreciative for the opportunity to participate. Thank you for allowing me to exhibit and for all the support and hard work that went into planning the event!”
