Gardner Research Director of Intelligence Steve Kline's annual Metalworking Capital Spending presentation is one of the manufacturing industry's most accurate and influential forecasts on projected spending on new machine tools, cutting tools and workholding equipment by US durable goods manufacturers.

Presented at major industry events like emo and the Association For Manufacturing Technology's Global Forecast and Marketing Conference, the Capital Spending Presentation examines leading indicators that reveal trends in projected equipment investment. The forecast also reports the data from Gardner Research's Annual Metalworking Capital Spending Survey which polls the buying intentions of more than 28,000 North American manufacturing facilities.
