Gardner Publications (GPI) and the National Tooling and Machining Association (NTMA) have agreed to co-locate their respective amerimold and NTMA Purchasing Fair events in 2012. The joint event is scheduled for June 13 and 14 at the Suburban Collection Showplace in Novi, Michigan. (Gardner Publications publishes “Modern Machine Shop” magazine.)
The organizations say joining the two exclusive events adds value to both by providing a single venue for tool and mold manufacturing professionals to find business, technology and sourcing solutions. Dedicated to tool and mold making, molding and additive technologies, amerimold will offer NMTA Purchasing Fair participants access to an exhibit hall with product technology suppliers and process innovation experts. Conversely, the NTMA Purchasing Fair will increase the participation of precision manufacturers and expand the networking component of amerimold.
