Moldmakers looking to see what is new in high-precision machining technology had an array of machine tools to choose from, with many models being demoed on the Amerimold show floor. Large and small, for milling, drilling, grinding and more, the trends between companies showed an emphasis on the ability to complete jobs ultra fast and ultra precisely, just as most moldmakers require. Multitasking machines were also in the house, showing a lot of versatility, and there were space-saving options, too.

Today’s slideshow provides some highlights, with a second slideshow following on Friday.
