Q&A with Motion + Power Technology Expo attendees


The Motion+Power Technology Expo 2021 is scheduled to hit St. Louis, Missouri, September 14-16. The show will bring thousands of industry experts and insiders to the Gateway to the West, where they will be on hand with knowledge to take gear manufacturing and more into 2020 and beyond. Gear Solutions reached out to several exhibitors and asked them to share their plans for M+PT Expo 2021. If you’re going to be at the show, be sure and stop by their booths for more information.

Forest City Gear

Booth #2513
Jared Lyford, Director of Manufacturing Operations

Visitors to the Forest City Gear booth often arrive with drawings in hand looking for solutions to their toughest application challenges. In many cases, the gears they really need don’t yet exist. Their journey to the right gear for the job often begins right then and there. So, we take a different approach from many exhibitors at the M+PT Expo. Rather than demonstrating off-the-shelf solutions or displaying commodity products, we will have a team of experts available for consultations as well as plenty of examples of fine- and medium-pitch precision gears that customers throughout the industry rely on us to produce.
