Manufacturing is back and Chicago, USA will be its epicenter, with around 90,000 visitors attending IMTS – The International Manufacturing Technology Show, taking place September 12-17 at Chicago’s McCormick Place . IMTS is North America’s largest manufacturing technology show. With over 1.21 million square feet of exhibit space representing 1,815 exhibitors, the show showcases digital technologies that offer the fastest and most efficient way to solve the challenges faced by manufacturers and their suppliers. .
Nine technology pavilions feature solutions such as multitasking machining centers, robots/cobots, digital twin, manufacturing software, controls, additive manufacturing and quality control/inspection. More than 75,000 people have pre-registered for the show, which attracts OEMs, Tier Suppliers, Manufacturers/Contract Manufacturers, Job Shops, Sourcing/Purchasing Agents, Investors, Students and technical educators.
“Advances in digital manufacturing technology showcased at IMTS 2022 will amaze even industry veterans,” says Peter R. Eelman, director of experience at AMT – the Association for Manufacturing Technology, which owns and produces IMTS. “If OEMs and job shops can digitize it, they should. Digital technology is the best way to increase productivity with an existing talent pool, control costs, make relocation/near-shoring more attractive, reduce time to market and respond with agility to volatile markets. Eelman notes that affordability and ease of implementation now bring advanced solutions within reach of small and medium-sized businesses.
“IMTS exhibitors broke down existing barriers to technology acquisition,” Elman said. “For example, visitors can learn how to configure and run an entry-level automation solution in 30 minutes. CT inspection systems now operate with push-button simplicity, and digital twin technology is as easy to use as your favorite CNC control or CAD/CAM program.
