FABTECH Canada 2018

Last week, Machitech attended FABTECH Canada 2018, Canada’s leading metal forming, fabricating, welding, and finishing event. Along with industry partners Hypertherm, Praxair Canada Inc., and Alpha Lazer, a member of the Machitech group, we had a productive show at the Toronto Congress Centre speaking with professionals and potential clients looking to boost their fabrication capabilities.

To help demonstrate Machitech’s versatility in plasma cutting, we brought our trusty Diamond Cut table, a unitized system specially designed for high precision cutting. Also on display was our patented inverse rail system, which allowed onlookers to get under the hood, as it were, and see how this hardware works to benefit both machine and user.

Taking the Show Live

Another exciting opportunity we integrated into the Machitech experience at this year’s FABTECH Canada, was our very first Facebook Live event and can be viewed here. Service Manager, Martin Labrecque, took online audience members for a tour around our booth, which we shared with Praxair Canada Inc. Garth Stapon, Automation Sales Specialist for Praxair Canada, explained how his company is trying to address the helium shortages that have been affecting the welding industry, and also offered some advice when investing in certain cutting systems.

From there, we were fortunate to talk with representatives from Hypertherm, who discussed the importance of various CAM solutions, as well as how excited they were to be at their first major trade show where they could exhibit their next-gen XPR300 plasma system.

Finally, just a couple booths down from Machitech’s, Scott Lindley, of Alpha Lazer, demonstrated the cut speed and precision of their CNC fiber laser cutting machine, the Fiber SL 3015, 5×10. This model is designed for thinner pieces of metal, and operates incredibly fast while delivering high quality products. Furthermore, Alpha Lazer’s clients receive industry leading tech support and customer care that has become synonymous with the Machitech group of companies.

Machitech would like to thank everyone who was able to stop by our booth and make this year’s FABTECH another great success. We look forward to seeing you and many others again at FABTECH North America, which returns to Atlanta at the Georgia World Congress Center from November 6 – 8. For those unable to attend the expo, Machitech will be streaming another Live event from the showroom floor, so stay tuned for further announcements as we get closer to the dates above.

And as always: cut well and prosper.
