“Biesse is well known for exhibiting technology throughout our booths at IWF, and we are very proud that attendees have come to expect this from us. Our intentions for IWF 2020 would not have disappointed,” said Randy Jamison, Biesse America’s executive vice president – Sales & Marketing. On tap for exhibit were multiple robotics automation cells, high-speed CNC solutions, the company’s newest inventory management/machine loading system, its latest edge technologies, and the latest in sanding technologies.

“Our industry is a face-to-face industry that transformed almost overnight to virtual, digital, remote, phone, and email,” Jamison said. Even before the cancellation of IWF, he noted, “Biesse hosted a number of webinars with an array of topics that we feel were extremely successful and well attended,” including one on automation for all levels of manufacturing for companies rethinking their production models.

“Our experienced Systems Team is available to discuss which level of automation fits best the organization, expectations, and production desired. From a simple fresh look at a current production flow to a total re-work or re-imagining of work-flow,” he added.

In addition to the virtual events available, the company recently reopened its state-of-the-art showroom to visitors, with safety protocols and recommendations from local, state and federal agencies in place. “The safety of our employees and our guests is at the forefront of our decisions at this time,” Jamison said.
