Oktoberfest Tool Show Focuses on Newest Technologies in Manufacturing
Plymouth, MN. September 2019 — Productivity’s 20th Oktoberfest Tool Show is slated for September 24-26, 2019. Every Oktoberfest Tool Show is a demonstration of the many manufacturing technologies available, and this year is no exception. At this show, you can also expect to see several new product releases, robotic cells in action, tool vending systems, measurement and programming software solutions, dimensional inspection products, used machine live auction, as well as some of our new and current additive manufacturing partners which have expanded the materials, options for prototyping, and capabilities of 3D printing in manufacturing.
Productivity’s biennial Oktoberfest Tool show is considered the largest distributor operated trade show event in the Midwest, if not the U.S. Over 40 CNC machine tools including Haas, Makino, Matsuura, Marubeni Citizen, Okamoto, BTM, Extrude Hone, Hasagawa, Hwacheon, Foba, iFP, Mighty Viper, Muratec, Omax, Scotchman, Statasys, Desktop Metal, NanoDimension, AddUp, Anca, Belmont and Tsune will be on display and running demonstrations.
