McCormick Place was busy throughout the week with manufacturers, fabricators, students and industry partners alike. The great city of Chicago, known for manufacturing and industry, was the perfect place to hold such an event as this.
We presented the HSFDB plate processing system to an eager audience of fabricators and manufacturing firms at booth 2349. The new Peddinghaus HSFDB plate processing system can drill, tap, countersink, mill, mark, and thermal cut plate up to 3in/75mm thick, using patented Roller Feed measurement technology. No other machine on the market has this type of capability!
In addition to the demonstration at McCormick Place, we held a separate event during the week of FABTECH at our facility in Bradley, IL (just south of Chicago). Peddinghaus' FABTECH Fest was the second most popular place to be in Illinois last week. Demonstrating over 20 machines, the facility was buzzing with interest!
To celebrate these two great events, Peddinghaus held a series of dinner events. Monday and Tuesday, dinner was held near our facility, and showcased entertainment such as magicians, fire eaters, musicians, bon fires, fireworks and more! Wednesday night a first class dinner was held in Chicago at Fulton's on the River, which concluded with an intriguing after dinner architecture boat cruise.
We are proud to say that FABTECH 2011 was a great success and we hope to see you next year in Las Vegas!
