IndustryArena News - February 2024


February 2024
Dear IndustryArena member (Member),

it´s February and once again it's Valentine's Day. Do you already have organized a small gift for your loved one? Diamonds are of course always very popular, even if they are not in everyone's price range for a Valentine´s gift.

Happy Valentine

But if you want to see professional grinding technology for processing diamonds and other solid material, GrindingHub 2024 in Stuttgart is the place to be. In addition to many European companies, there will also be many exhibitors from Asia at the trade fair.

We also want to introduce articles about the development of food printing and the factors that will influence the price of a new CNC machine in 2024. And like every month, we have a collection of some nice CNC videos matching to the highlights of February.
