Topeka, KS – With a sold-out exhibit hall and TechshopTM, the IADD·FSEA 2013 Odyssey will feature more running machinery specific to the fields of diecutting/diemaking, foil stamping and folding/gluing than either Graph Expo or Graphics of the Americas. The tradeshow will be held May 1-3 at the Nashville Convention Center in Nashville, TN, USA, with a theme that encourages attendees to “Plug In” to the latest technologies and industry trends in a combination of classroom and Techshop™ workshops specifically designed to improve productivity and open new markets.  

Throughout the Technology Hall, demonstrations will take place on a wide range of equipment from industry-leading companies, including Adams Technologies; American International Machinery; Associated Pacific Machine Corp.; Baysek Machines, Inc.; Bobst North America, Inc.; Brandtjen & Kluge, Inc.; Breit Technologies LLC; B&R Moll; Elcede GmbH; Gerber Innovations; Karl Marbach GmbH & Co.; Masterwork USA; Medical Presses, Inc.; My Press Needs; Preco Industries; SERRA and Therm-O-Type. 

Equipment will include diecutting presses (high-speed platen; clamshell; vacuum-assisted rotary anvil-flatbed; medical; and more); a swing arm knife cutting machine; folder-gluers; foil stampers; auto benders; cold foil units; waterjets; laser systems; routing systems; rotary converting platforms; mounting systems and more. 

The Odyssey's one-of-a-kind Techshop environment simulates a working production shop floor where technical sessions are taught on-press throughout the three-day event. This educational venue is unlike any other in North America, as attendees discover practical solutions to everyday challenges from press operators who are experts in their field.
