The AASHTO Annual Meeting is right around the corner, and the Transhield team is ecstatic about participating as an exhibitor this year.

Vehicles and heavy-duty equipment of all kinds benefit from having a protective covering during transport or storage—but the cover in question is only as good as its fit. That’s where the innovative work of the Transhield design team shines. Its reputation is built on producing custom quality products while always embracing a spirit of innovation—something that recently became evident when Transhield purchased a 3D scanner to do advanced patterning work.
The International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) is coming to Chicago September 10-15. Transhield is happy to announce that we will be participating in this year’s event from Booth #121463, in the East Building, Level 2.
IMTS is America's largest display and demonstration of global manufacturing technology, with more than 115,000 projected attendees from the manufacturing industry as well as influencers in medicine, automotive, aerospace, and other fields. The show welcomes buyers and sellers from 117 countries. This year’s show marks the 32nd year, and a notable percentage of attendees say they have been successful in finding specific products or solving manufacturing problems.
For decades, the most environmentally conscious among us touted the benefits of replacing our goods—and then recycling them. This sound plan has recently come to a somewhat screeching halt, however, as China has imposed new import restrictions impacting recyclers. As a result, those with an eye on both the health of the environment and on the bottom line are embracing a new approach: repairing materials and equipment instead of replacing it to save time and money.

Machinery breakdowns can be a major expense. Some breakdowns are easily fixed with a spare part but others require hours or days to repair. The one type of damage that is most often overlooked yet easily prevented is environmental damage. UV rays cause degradation of exteriors which lead to corrosion. Dirt and dust cause sensitive components to malfunction. Environmental damage can take a machine out of commission and cause delays in production which increases the financial loss exponentially. In the case of the military, if an asset isn’t mission ready, it could mean a life or death situation. Watch below to learn more.
Equipment is often designed and manufactured for continuous use with minimal attention to downtime issues. Thus equipment owners must ensure that during planned or surprise downtime, surfaces stay protected from the elements. There are a number of factors to consider when preparing for downtime protection, and it’s important to avoid endangering the integrity of your valuable equipment.

In various forms, concrete has been in use since the Bedouin traders of 6500 BC. The word concrete itself comes from the Latin word “concrescere”, which can be translated per syllable as “con” (together) and “crescere” (to grow).
Shipping, on the surface, seems like a straightforward task. However, it’s a task that comes with complex issues to consider, especially when it comes to fragile or expensive equipment.
World of Concrete (WOC) is the largest annual international event dedicated to concrete and masonry professionals. This year’s event, held from January 22 to January 26 in Las Vegas, will have 1,500 exhibitors, and Transhield is proud to be among them!
WOC was born in Houston, Texas, in 1975 with 1,550 attendees. More than 40 years later, the event continues to grow, hosting and supporting 55,000 concrete and masonry experts. With 150 education courses and more than 1,500 exhibitors, there will be countless opportunities to engage with like-minded professionals and learn about what’s happening in the industry.
Transporting heavy equipment is a uniquely intimidating task. Not only are the products you’re shipping extremely heavy, bulky, and often asymmetrical, they are most likely very valuable as well. And there are many challenges that can rapidly become overwhelming, including safety concerns and delay issues that can be frustrating for both you and the intended recipient. However, there are key preparation steps that can be taken to make the entire shipping process smoother, easier, and far less stressful.
