The Canadian Tooling & Machining Association (CTMA) has announced that it will be promoting its members’ capabilities at the Canadian Manufacturing Technology Show (CMTS), which will take place on Oct. 15 to 18, 2007 at the Direct Energy Centre in Toronto.

The CTMA said that it would be distributing copies of the association’s 2007 Buyers’ Guide at booth #160.

The four-day CMTS 2007 show will feature more than 600 manufacturers and distributors in the areas of machine tools, factory automation, metal forming, tooling and supplies, and measurement technology and quality assurance. According to the show audit, the 2005 installment had a total attendance of nearly 10,000 people.

Additionally, the show’s education segment entitled “Manufacturing Insights” will consist of seminars and plant tours on each show day. The sessions will focus on lean strategies for small manufacturers on Monday, Oct. 15; new developments in moldmaking on Tuesday, Oct. 16; and laser cutting on the last two days of the show.

In the first session for the Tuesday moldmaking seminar, Neil Dewar of Georgetown, Ont.-based hot runner supplier Mold-Masters Ltd. will discuss the advanced manufacturing techniques used in the construction of hot runners. Participants will also have the opportunity to tour Mold-Masters’s facility.
