Austech 2010 exceeded all expectations with increased visitor numbers signalling economic recovery. As one of the largest exhibitors, Advanced Robotic Technology (ART) registered more visitors than at previous Sydney shows, a positive sign for local industry slowly recovering from the crisis, ART Director Peter Nolan said. “Our innovative purpose-built CNC profile cutting machines on display, including modern automation, tooling and software solutions, attracted a lot of attention from visitors, and we are very pleased with the amount of generated high-quality leads, inquiries and orders placed during the four-day event.”
The Brisbane-based company presented four of its latest model Australian-made CNC profile cutters during Austech 2010, held at the Sydney Showground from 11 to 14 May 2010, including the High Definition Plasma Table series with the newly released “True Hole” technology from Hypertherm in combination with rigid tapping, its popular SMART series of profile cutters, as well as the newly released RT series heavy duty router, which attracted special attention during the show.
“This machine is the heaviest production router manufactured in this country by far, with an extremely rigid drive system and ART’s outstanding Profileshop control system,” Mr Nolan said. “The RT series will head up the line of innovative equipment and has already received attention from major overseas ship builders and manufacturers.”
