This year’s AISTech-show took place in Pittsburgh, PA and was one of the largest AIST shows so far with over 7500 attendees (read more). Shapeline was present as usual and had the new VeriFlat®-sensor on display. The sensor was fully operational and demonstrated real-time measurement on a moving sheet in the booth, which caused a fair bit of attention. On Tuesday night, the annual Hospitality suite was arranged in the nearby Westin hotel by Shapeline and partners. It was the biggest hospitality suite so far with live music, two bars, food and several hundred guests. An event to look out for next year!
All in all, the spirit on the show was more optimistic than before, hopefully yet another sign that there is an up-turn in the global steel industry.
