Fabrication logo The Fabricators and Manufacturers Association International (FMA) and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers (SME) announced plans to launch a new trade show, FABTECH Mexico, to be held June 2-4, 2009, at the CINTERMEX exhibition center in Monterrey, Mexico.

FABTECH Mexico will co-locate with the established AWS Weldmex (organized by the American Welding Society and Trade Show Consulting) and METALFORM Mexico (organized by the Precision Metalforming Association) shows. The joint event is expected to serve manufacturing professionals and practitioners throughout Mexico and Central America.

This new event will feature a variety of bending and fabrication products, including laser and plasma cutting, coil processing, roll forming, plate and structural fabricating, saws and cut-off machines, tooling, press brakes, shears, punching, robotics, and tube and pipe equipment.

Plans are underway to alternate the location of the combined annual event between Monterrey and Mexico City. Exhibitors are encouraged to use FABTECH Mexico as a platform to introduce their products and processes to a core audience of Mexico's metal fabricating professionals.
