Launching at IWF 2022: A New Production Training Program – Attendee Fast Facts No. 10

Atlanta, GA—Suppliers have worked with hundreds of woodworking businesses and helped them solve problems and implement new techniques.

Exhibitor EDU sessions at IWF 2022 tap that wealth of knowledge. Exhibitor EDU provides woodworking industry professionals with practical production training in a focused setting just a few steps from the show floor.

One example is a presentation by Frank Kiska and Kris Hanchette of Republic Manufacturing (IWF Booth B8248) on optimizing vacuum hold-down on CNC routers, covering vacuum pumps and related vacuum plumbing optimization, spoil boards, fixturing, and how to optimize job files to maximize vacuum hold down.

Sessions run from one to two hours and are presented in the course of the show. Afterward, you can take a deeper dive on the show floor. See a sampling of the Exhibitor EDU sessions below and view the list of IWF Education programs here.
