Pleased to Meet You: Stepping into SMW Autoblok's IMTS Booth Opens a World of Opportunities

September 25, 2017

Technology and innovation are at the heart of IMTS, as well as at the heart of SMW Autoblok, a global engineering and manufacturing company providing state-of–the-art workholding, clamping and tooling solutions.

SMW Autoblok participates in IMTS because, “Everything else pales in comparison to what happens at IMTS,” says Gary Downs, President, of SMW Autoblok. “That’s why we have been an exhibitor since 1966.”

The company has manufacturing facilities in Meckenbeuren, Germany and Caprie, Italy. These facilities continuously develop new technology, and the company catalog grows thicker every year with new products. Covering the United States and Canada, SMW Autoblok’s facility in Wheeling, Ill., takes the products made in Europe, but then differentiates itself with a full-service facility that includes onsite engineering, installation, maintenance, repair and more than $7 million in products and parts inventory. A service facility also exists in Conroe, Texas, just outside of Houston.
