Today was the first day of the 2017 CAMX show in Orlando, Florida. The show is the largest composites and advanced materials show in North America, and was originally scheduled for September until Hurricane Irma came to town. Despite the delay, the show was well attended by composites professionals from all over the world.
At the GTI Technologies booth we are showing the latest version of the Takatori Robot Wire Saw. Mounted on a Yaskawa Motoman MH180 robot, the innovative slicing system gathered a great deal of attention from a wide variety of attendees. Aerospace giants, tech companies, and smaller job shops all stopped by to take a closer look at our live cutting demos.
The Robot Wire Saw uses thin, diamond-coated wire to quickly and cleanly cut through a wide variety of composite materials. Aramid and aluminum honeycomb, carbon fiber, sandwich panels, and foams are all suitable for the machine, and visitors to our booth were able to see the machine cutting these materials. Some potential customers even brought their own materials to our booth to be sliced, and the Takatori engineers quickly obliged.
It was a solid first day here in Orlando, and we look forward to learning about new applications and showing attendees our capabilities over the next two days.
