SOUTHTEC 2023 Taking Place October 24-26

SOUTHTEC 2023, an SME event for small- to medium-size manufacturers (SMMs) and large original equipment manufacturers (OEMs), supports the thriving Southeast manufacturing industry by providing attendees with a forum for exploration of new technologies and connection with new business partners. SOUTHTEC will host over 250 exhibitors October 24-26, 2023, at the Greenville Convention Center in Greenville, SC. The event is sponsored by SME and AMT-The Association For Manufacturing Technology.

SOUTHTEC is part of the Manufacturing Technology (MT) Series-four regional events conducted bi-annually to bring decision-makers from diverse industries together with the leaders in advanced manufacturing technology. The SOUTHTEC 2023 exhibitor lineup includes some of the most innovative names in manufacturing and draws hundreds of global suppliers, distributors and equipment builders.

Some of this year's featured exhibitors include:

  • Haas Factory Outlet-A Division of Phillips (booth 809) offers sales, service and support for Haas. Attendees can discover Haas' wide selection of fully integrated automation solutions, such as automatic parts loaders, pallet-pool systems and 6-axis robot systems.
  • Morris South-A Division of Morris Group Inc. (booth 1009) is a supplier of CNC machine tools, tooling, accessories, automation and related engineering services, representing brands such as Okuma, Tsugami, Desktop Metal, Universal Robots and more. Attendees at SOUTHTEC can meet with productivity specialists to discuss optimizing CNC machine tool performance to enhance their manufacturing operations and boost their productivity and competitiveness.
  • Mazak Corp (booth 1309) will feature cutting-edge solutions in action, including HYBRID Multi-Tasking machines that feature state-of-the-art additive and joining techniques paired with subtractive capabilities, and MAZATROL Smooth CNC with integrated automation and next-level software packages that improve repeatability and reliability.
  • GROB Systems Inc. (booth 829) has expanded its portfolio to include universal 5-axis machining centers. Attendees at SOUTHTEC can experience first-hand how the unique retractable spindle provides improved accessibility to the workpiece, and even upside-down machining, in a collision-free environment during tool change.
  • Lyndex-Nikken Inc. (booth 1709) produces high performance machine tool accessories. Attendees at SOUTHTEC will learn how to enhance their machining centers and optimize their capabilities with advanced tools and engineering solutions.

The Southeast is experiencing exceptional growth in areas critical to the U.S. economy, such as aerospace, automotive and advanced materials. In particular, South Carolina is becoming an automotive hub with the recent announcements of electric vehicle and battery plants, plus sector-focused educational opportunities. To support the region's industrial progress, this year's SOUTHTEC programming concentrates on workforce development solutions and the SMART manufacturing approach, plus highlights Manufacturing USA's impactful innovators.

"Events like SOUTHTEC help to advance the manufacturing industry because they invite small- and medium-sized manufacturers to openly discuss their most pressing challenges, adding their voice to the broader dialogue around advanced technologies to increase the efficiency of traditional processes," said Robert "Bob" Willig, Executive Director and CEO of SME. "Scaling these solutions to make them viable for all manufacturers-beyond just the large companies making big investments-is a driving force for advancement in our industry, since the majority of U.S. companies are those with fewer than 500 employees."
