The Baldock-based sliding head tooling expert claims that it was the diversity of its collets, guide bushes, indexable tooling ranges and the application expertise that sent small turned parts manufacturers directly to the distinctive orange stand.
The firm says that its extensive turning lines from Applitec and the sheer diversity of its portfolio were certainly points of note.
Providing feedback, Floyd Automatic Tooling MD Richard Floyd says: “We generated more enquiries at MACH 2018 than at many of the previous events and what stood-out for us was the high enquiry level from both new customers and overseas clients too.
“The high level of new enquiries is partially down to more subcontractors embracing the benefits of sliding head technology whilst the overseas lead generation can be largely attributed to language barriers and a reluctance to engage in technical dialogue when English isn’t your first language.
“We also invested in the Pokem technology at MACH with eight contact points that enabled us to identify what product lines generated the greater interest at the show.”
