From some of the United States' largest industrial technology innovators to the heads of small machine shops and providers of workholding, drilling and grinding tools, manufacturers from across the country will gather this fall at an unprecedented industry summit to chart a new course for the domestic manufacturing industry. Kennametal Inc., a global market leader in delivering productivity in demanding environments through innovative custom and standard wear-resistant solutions, has become the newest experience partner to sign on for the event.
