Mid Atlantic Machinery hosts STEEL TECH with record breaking turn out

February 12, 2020 - Mid Atlantic Machinery Inc., Harrisburg, Pennsylvania, had a record attendance of over 600 at their 16th annual metal and steel fabrication event for the manufacturing industry in February.

STEEL TECH: Revolutionize your Future featured over 30 machines operating under the latest technologies from over 25 of the industry’s biggest leaders including ARKU, Bend-Tech, Cidan, Ercolina, Faccin, Flex Machine Tools, Geka, HE&M Saw, Kinetic, Miller Welding, PMI, TRUMPF, Universal Robots and more.

New to the show this year were ALLtra plasma cutting, CR Onsrud’s CNC router for aluminum extrusions, Inspecvision for 2D and 3D scanning and inspection, Flow waterjet, a FINISHLINE finishing and deburring machine as well as Metamation’s 2D/3D sheet metal software.

In addition to industry leaders and customers, 122 students attended the show from six local trade schools, high schools and colleges. They were able to pass business cards out for future employment opportunities and see examples of real-world manufacturing happening outside of the classroom. A motorized drift trike donated by an application engineer who built the trike in his free time (pictured below) was raffled off and raised over $1,000 for Thaddeus Stevens College of Technology out of Lancaster, PA.

Mid Atlantic Machinery believes in the importance of education for students and customers alike explains company President Kevin Kilgallen:

“We strive to be the best resource we can for manufacturers and fabricators and a huge part of that is education. We offered 17 free educational seminars and customers were able to learn about new competitive advantages in a personal setting, and get questions answered directly pertaining to their needs. Steel Tech was a huge success and we are already looking forward to next year’s event.”

The lineup of educational seminars was led by subject matter experts who covered the latest industry trends and best practices. Sessions focused on robotic welding for first time users, CNC routing, plate and pipe plasma cutting, high powered fiber lasers, CNC long bed machining, quality control and business management strategies.

Daily lunches and dinners were provided over the 3 day open house in addition to prizes and complimentary tickets to the Great American Outdoor Show. Attendees also had the opportunity for Q&A and networking with experts and peers.

From automation and Industry 4.0 to maximizing process efficiencies and reducing labor reliance, the future of manufacturing is rapidly evolving and Mid Atlantic Machinery is providing a space for those in the industry in the mid-Atlantic region to see solutions firsthand at Steel Tech.
