IMTS: Where Dreamers and Doers Connect

“IMTS is still really important for my purchasing decisions. I can touch it, pick it up, look at it and talk with the tool reps. I've come across things at IMTS that I was able to put into action within weeks of coming back from the show. These technologies have cut processes in half and eliminated operations. IMTS has had a direct ROI impact on us.”

On his wish list for IMTS 2018 was a large VTL boring mill, a slant bed lathe with live tooling for handling larger parts at higher capacity and more.

CNC Supervisor Peter Claus knows a thing or two about how technology keeps a manufacturer competitive. Over the past 24 years, he's seen his company, HFW Industries (Buffalo, N.Y.), evolve from a small hardfacing and thermal spray provider to a robust machine shop with many capabilities, always using state-of-the-art manufacturing technology.
