After starting our fair tour at Blechexpo our team went off to Chicago to this year’s FABTECH. For four days more than 1.700 exhibitors presented their innovations to about 43.000 visitors in the McCormick Place Convention Center.
Again people had a lot of interest in our digital business platform for manufacturing companies. Companies from the sheet metal industry as well as potential partners for the development of AXOOM Apps wanted to see our solution and provided great feedback to our demonstration.
We are especially happy to see how the media responded to our presentation at the fair. One article in manufacturing ENGINEERING pointed out AXOOM as one of the highlights: “If you didn’t make it to FABTECH in Chicago this week, you missed what will certainly go down in history as the trade show where Industry 4.0 arrived with a bang in North America. […] Trumpf also revealed that its spinoff startup company AXOOM would work to connect factories and suppliers through Apps.” We managed to surprise author Sarah A. Webster who did not expect this kind of solution already this year.
After these exciting but also tough days at the fairs in Stuttgart and Chicago our team managed to spend a little time in Chicago. Discovering the city by boat we really enjoyed the architecture and flair of this beautiful city. Definitely a great way to end a our great fair tour!
