Shop Floor Automations enjoyed a very successful IMTS 2016 tradeshow in Chicago IL. We loved running into so many of our customers in the Windy City, as well as meeting potential new customers that we look forward to serving for years to come. We encourage you to click the photo to your left to see in better detail a collage of some of our favorite moments of the show.
One highlight of the show was the unveiling of the Multi Connect to the public. With its sleek look in a beautiful acrylic case, a shiny black footing, and its beckoning stack light, it was definitely eye catching. Many of our leads from the show want to know more about this fascinating piece of technology, which is specifically compatible with the MTConnect protocol, as news becomes available.
A great number of our visitors were definitely interested in Machine Monitoring, as well as Wireless DNC and our other solutions. We enjoyed educating machinists on how to make their shop floors and CNC machines run more efficiently and eliminate downtime, even with legacy machines.
During our time at IMTS, we were letting guests know that by getting their badges scanned, they were also entered into our drawing for various Shop Floor Automations prizes. We were giving away some of our Hardware solutions, as well as our very popular G-code T-Shirt. The list of winners, who have been notified, is in the image to the right, which you can click on to magnify.
Other than the business we conducted, we also found rare free time to do some things of a tourist’s nature. Four of our employees went on a nighttime field trip to the top of the Sears Tower AKA the Willis Tower to take in the 103rd story views. We also ate at many great restaurants, such as the exclusive Frontera, and interacted with many interesting local Chicagoans. The architecture of this grand city during our many back-and-forth drives from downtown to McCormick Place made our commute worthwhile.
UPDATE, as of 9-27-16: We pulled three new winners for this contest, since three previous winners did not get back to us in a timely manner. See the list HERE.
