HOUSTEX is dedicated to showcasing advanced technologies and processes that help manufacturers innovate and create industry transformation. Hosted at the George R. Brown Convention Center in Houston and produced by SME and AMT, HOUSTEX features hundreds of exhibits, keynote presentations and panel discussions, highlighting the latest products and services designed to help manufacturers develop their pathway to success.
This year from October 5-7, you can discover the latest manufacturing trends, get hands-on demonstrations with industry experts and gather insights that will help you improve productivity, increase profits and discover new solutions to help you stay ahead of the competition.
From additive manufacturing to robotics, machining centers to welding, and dozens of technologies in between, HOUSTEX allows exhibitors to showcase their products and explore the best that manufacturing has to offer. Brochures only give you the basics and videos tell you part of the story, but HOUSTEX 2021 allows you to see the latest industry products and developments in person, in one location.
This year, you can visit Linde (known as Linde beginning October 11, 2021) at booth 1227 with a selection of innovative products and technologies to showcase. Among them is the ProStar™ Lancer™ COBOT welding system, designed to take robotic welding to the next level. Made for smaller, complex operations to help operators reduce time and costs, the Lancer COBOT (COllaborative RoBOT) welding system makes welding automation affordable and accessible. With a 48-by-48-inch workspace, 5/8-inch peg tooling compatibility, 500-amp Binzel® air-cooled welding torch, built-in water cutting table and ready integration for Hypertherm® Powermax® cutting systems, Linde’s COBOT system is ready to help you improve the productivity of your repetitive processes.
Also being highlighted at this year’s event is the ProStar™ Lancer™ PRS4 cutting system, an affordable solution for the steel processing needs of light fabricators, job shops, HVAC, artists and hobbyists. With minimal setup and effective cut dimensions of 4’ × 4’, Lancer PRS4 CNC cutting systems provide the ability to efficiently process carbon steel, stainless steel plate while being easy to move and deploy as facility needs evolve. These machines also feature full support for Hypertherm® plasma systems, and Flashcut™ CNC controllers for fast cutting speeds, optimal nesting, high cut quality and ease of use.
Our Linde representatives will also be exhibiting IPG Photonic’s LightWELD, a new handheld laser welding system designed to enable faster welding, easier operation and consistent results across a range of materials and thicknesses without distortion, deformation, undercut or burn-through, when compared to traditional MIG and TIG welders. Simple controls allow novice welders to be trained in a matter of hours, while experienced users can benefit from the faster and more flexible processing capabilities.
