In addition to keynote speeches, workshops and product showcases, attendees will have the opportunity to visit pavilions on the show floor.
Several pavilions will be of high interest to design engineers:
Contract Manufacturing will provide visits with companies that can help maximize contract investments.
Microsystems will enable attendees to find the products, tools and suppliers needed to reach the "next level of miniaturization and the product innovation."
Motion Technology will demonstrate a collection of power transmission, electromechanical, hydraulic and pneumatic components, and control systems.
Attendees can also visit the CAD/CAM pavilion, sponsored by CADwire.net. where participants will be able to "test drive the next-generation systems" from current suppliers. The SolidWorks Partners pavilion, sponsored by SolidWorks, offers product design, providing software and services designed to help manufacturers get new products to market faster.
