Fastems LLC will host a live webinar entitled Automating Milling Machines in 2021 – Are Pallet Pools Enough? on Wednesday, June 9th at 11 AM EDT. Product Manager of Pallet Automation Ilkka Saarimaa will host the webinar as well as a Q&A session in which attendees may ask questions regarding CNC automation for milling machines. The webinar, designed for North American attendees, and especially for machine shops investigating whether automation makes sense or not, has limited seats. Fastems encourages anyone interested to register early at

The webinar will cover the reasons companies should automate their milling machines, what kind of automation options are available with today’s technology, and if pallet pools are enough to keep a manufacturer competitive. The planned topics include:

  • Why invest in a 4-axis machining center with automation rather than multiple 3-axis machine tools
  • Common automation goals as well as uncommon goals that more companies should consider
  • The types of plug-and-play automation options available for milling machines
  • Whether or not pallet pools are enough in 2021’s market

The webinar will also feature a success story that covers how manufacturers can begin with CNC automation.
