Visitors to Fastems’ booth at the inaugural imX (interactive manufacturing experience) event will take away a greater comprehension of the benefits and the application of flexible manufacturing systems, the company says. “We will relay the why, where and how of utilizing factory automation to stay competitive in today’s global economic environment,” says Tomi Ketola, president of Fastems, LLC, the North American subsidiary of Fastems Oy Ab in Tampere, Finland.
Scheduled for September 12-14 in Las Vegas, imX aims to depart from the traditional trade show model and provide an interactive, educational experience. IN keeping with that theme, Fastems plans to engage customers and prospects with compelling “real world” information, interactive workshops and dynamic audio/visual presentations. Factory automation specialists will be available throughout the show.
“Visitors to our booth have an opportunity to extend their awareness of what flexible manufacturing systems, when combined with innovative engineering, will do for their businesses,” Mr. Ketola says. “We are an open integrator with virtually every machine tool brand. Our installations are increasing because production automation is an effective way to increase productivity, reduce costs and make a significant, positive impact on profitability.”
