Spending a Day at the Gear Expo

See a slideshow of equipment spotted at the 2013 edition of Gear Expo, the show’s largest edition in more than a decade.

In September, I spent a day at the Gear Expo, held at the Indiana Convention Center in downtown Indy. Presented by the American Gear Manufacturers Association (AGMA), the biennial event is the world’s only conference and exposition designed exclusively for the gear industry. This year’s show featured more than 200 exhibitors—covering gear materials, machining and measurement—and is said to be the largest edition in more than a decade.

This was the first Gear Expo I’ve attended (it’s held every other year). I’m glad I did, because I was able to meet with some companies that I wasn’t as familiar with as I’d like to be. Here are ten things that caught my eye while I was there.
