SLIDESHOW: Technology Showcase, Machining

This past year MMT has covered many moldmakers that have invested in equipment upgrades, especially when it comes to machining technology. So, with IMTS a little over a month away, I thought I'd tease you a bit with some of the machining innovation that will be on the show floor.

IMTS is taking place September 12-17, at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois, and feature more than 2,000 exhibitors showcasing their technology wares—everything from CAD/CAM and 3D printing technology to machining and cutting tools to automation and inspection /measurement equipment. It is the perfect place for generating new ideas, finding answers to your manufacturing problems, seeing technology in action and choosing the best solution for your needs.

Show organizers say that 93 percent of attendees find new products or ideas to use, 86 percent find specific solutions to manufacturing problems, 89 percent visit booths of companies not currently calling on them, and 64 percent make new business contacts. Sounds to me like this show is worth your time and investment.

Paul Novak, president of South Coast Mold agrees. He is one of many MoldMaking Technology readers headed to the event. This California-based mold manufacturer, featured on page 36 for its unique machining strategies aimed at decreasing mold-build times, understands the advantages of having five-axis machining capabilities, so Paul will be using IMTS to do some investigating. “There is some equipment we may need in the next 12 months, but we also have long-term needs that IMTS will help us navigate. While at the show, we’ll research equipment and technology that requires a greater investment,” he says. Paul was recently feature in IMTS’ “We Are” video series, click here to view the video. 

To help hone your focus for a productive IMTS, we are running an IMTS Exhibitor Product Showcase slideshow every Tuesday until the big event.  Check out today's featuring some of the machining innovation that will be on the show floor next month.
