Last week, UEA attended ConExpo, as we do every three years. It's always a massive show, and this time was no different, with over 139,000 attendees and 2,400 exhibitors, breaking records. We attempted to walk most of the show, but it was hard to see everything, especially while working in our booth.
UEA has always had a booth to display current products as well as new innovative projects. One product that received a lot of attention this year was the new Pin Swivel, used to eliminate flexible hydraulic hoses in several applications. We also displayed new miniature and pancake slip rings, as well as a contactless RF slip ring. American Reels, a brand of UEA, also showcased some of their heavy-duty cable reels. These reels could be seen on service trucks and other machines throughout the show.
Overall, the show was great for UEA. We were able to connect with existing customers as well as meet potential new clients. It was also great to walk the show and see our equipment on the machines and observe how things are changing in the industry.
