"The new Okuma GENOS M460V-5AX 5-Axis vertical machining center (VMC) also will be introduced to the region at the event.

"Technology is continually evolving, and it is critically important that manufacturers evolve with it to stay competitive," said Craig Hahne, Vice President of Sales at Morris Midwest. "The theme-Educate, Update, Automate-reflects the focus of our event this year."

More than 20 CNC machine tools will run live cutting demos at the event. Machine models will include horizontal lathes from the Okuma GENOS and LB-EX Series; the Okuma GA15W x 25 Grinder; the Okuma MB-5000H horizontal machining center (HMC); the Okuma LT2000 EX-2T2MY Twin Turret, Twin Spindle Turning Center; the Okuma MU-5000V 5-Axis VMC; the GENOS M560-V VMC; several Swiss-type CNC lathes from Tsugami/Rem Sales, plus the Tsugami SS327-5AX 5-axis turning center and a LaserSwiss model, in addition to other machinery selected to meet area manufacturers' needs.

"Our demos will showcase the breadth and depth of solutions that Morris Midwest offers," added Don Spaethe, Regional Sales Manager at Morris Midwest, IL. "Our application engineers and technology partners have spent a great deal of time developing demos to show how new technology can contribute to increases in productivity and part quality while reducing overall costs."
