Although the Amerimold event is primarily targeted to manufacturing companies involved in plastic injection molds, anyone interested in the advanced technology that is critical to mold machining could find useful, valuable information there. In fact, I went looking for product news and application insights that would be of interest to the metalworking industry at large. There was plenty to see. Almost all of the emerging developments and key trends in metalworking technology were represented at this show, as the highlights of my discoveries illustrate.
