DISCOVER 2013: MAZAK'S LARGEST TECHNOLOGY AND EDUCATION EVENT TO DATE
More than 3,000 people, including metalworking professionals from all industry segments, the media and students, converged at Mazak's headquarters and manufacturing campus in Florence, Kentucky to attend DISCOVER 2013, the largest technology-driven manufacturing solutions event this year.
With significant emphasis on education, DISCOVER 2013 gave manufacturers direct access to everything they could possibly need to expand their metalworking knowledge and optimize their operations, from today's most advanced machining technology to the latest metalworking trends to valuable industry expert advice. In fact, more than 70 different presentations took place throughout the course of the event, highlighting topics such as additive manufacturing, improving factory utilization and U.S. manufacturing making a comeback.
"Mazak frequently hosts industry events, but we raised the bar with DISCOVER 2013," said Brian Papke, president of Mazak Corporation. "Time is money in today's competitive manufacturing environment, and we wanted to go beyond the typical open house events of our industry and make DISCOVER 2013 an experience no one could afford to miss. The record-breaking turnout and positive feedback we've received so far validates our commitment to our customers and the North American manufacturing industry."
