Attend EASTEC 2019 – the Northeast’s largest manufacturing event
The United States’ Northeast region has traditionally been a manufacturing hub. That tradition is continuing and expanding with the increased use of smart technologies and the move toward advanced manufacturing methods and machinery—all of which will be on display at EASTEC 2019, May 14-16, 2019, in West Springfield, Mass.
With more than 600 companies exhibiting, EASTEC promises to deliver new technologies, new suppliers, and new solutions. Visitors will learn more about robotic welding, automation, cutting/additive machines, Industry 4.0, mixed reality experiences, and machine learning.
