Early this month, I attended the 25th edition of the Performance Racing Industry (PRI) show in Orlando. The vast majority of exhibitors at PRI manufacture or supply racing equipment, including engine parts, suspension components, data acquisition, safety gear, race electronics as well as advanced metal alloys and coatings.
 
That said, the PRI also features “Machinery Row,” an area where machining and manufacturing equipment OEMs display their wares. Check out the slideshow below that highlights some of what caught my eye in this year’s Machinery Row.
