The Can’t-Miss Industrial Event of The Year

Chicago Fabtech 2013 Floor

FABTECH 2017 will be hosted at McCormick Place in Chicago, IL. The event made its debut in Cleveland, Ohio in 1981. Today it’s known as the largest metal forming, fabricating, welding and finishing event in North America.

Reasons to go could be put into a full-length novel but here’s our top four in the form of a blog post.

If you’re attending, you may find yourself overwhelmed by the 1,700 exhibits within a 750,000 square-foot space. For that reason it’s great to know what your own “must-visit” booths will be and keep your list handy. FABTECH has an exhibitor search that you can use here.

Before and during the event there will be some great giveaways from your favorite companies including American Torch Tip. See details about our pre-show giveaway on our Facebook page.


Don’t Miss Our Booth

American Torch Tip will be showcasing our newest technologies and products, spanning six welding and cutting platforms and over 18,000 items. We’ll also have hands-on activities with the potential of receiving free, cool stuff.

Last Years Event

Last year, ATTC showed off our innovation with interactive examples of our Virtually Indestructible Lightning® Handle. We had attendee’s take a whack at this high-tech plastic handle in attempt to break it. (Hint, no one did.)

See just how indestructible this handle is:

Our new, Lightning® KNL360 was also a highlight on the show floor, with it’s infinite-rotation cable.


This year, we’ll be showcasing our brand-new CleanCut™ Plasma Technology and how it was inspired by rocket technology to produce cleaner cuts and last longer than standard plasma consumables.

What To Do In Chicago

FABTECH 2017 will be at McCormick Place, bayside, just south of Millennium park, so there will be plenty to keep yourself occupied if you’re staying for a few extra days.
