October is in full swing, which means that the FAB Shop Magazine Fabtech preview issue is live. Like we do every year, the team at FAB Shop compiles press releases from show exhibitors to give readers a sneak peek of what’s to come. In this issue, we also published our Website Showcase, an easy-use-to resource for anyone looking to upgrade their operations.

In addition to our special sections, the October issue features news on punch/laser combo equipment, plasma cutting, oil mist extraction systems and the importance of proper material handling. To round things out, the cover article gives helpful advice to anyone looking to open up a new fabrication shop or overhaul an outdated one.
