Gear Manufacturing Technology Update October 25, 2017
Gear Expo Day 1
The first day of Gear Expo has been a resounding success. We've heard from a number of exhibitors who all report that business is good, foot traffic has been steady, and overall the show seems strong compared with previous years.
Our observations are that the exhibitors have come in full force with plenty of technology, and they represent a wide range of technologies from beginning to end in the life of a gear, including all of the major machine tool manufacturers, tooling suppliers and ancillary equipment and services -- not to mention dozens of gear and gearbox manufacturers with their wares on display.
As for the Gear Technology team, we've had a successful first day as well.
