Hermance Machine Co. in Williamsport, Pa., will host an exposition featuring interactive and educational seminars on May 12 and 13, from 8 a.m. to 4 p.m. each day.
Presentations and live machine demonstrations relevant to the wood, plastics, composites, and metal industries will be held, with a focus on demonstrating how to effectively integrate machines from different manufacturers. Some of the hands-on education programs include: setup and maintenance of machinery and processes such as edgebander setup and maintenance, moulder setup and knife grinding, CNC fixturing and setup, dovetail drawer box construction, optimizing saw systems, lean manufacturing, and material handling and labor reduction techniques. Attendees can expect to acquire in-depth knowledge of the processes, without needing to personally know specifics to ask the sales representative, Hermance says. The exposition will also include hands-on application forums as well.
