IMTS 2016 Announces Additive Manufacturing Pavilion

A novelty at IMTS 2008, 3D printing is taking its rightful place as an industrial solution.

Previously featured in AMT’s Emerging Technology Center as a cutting edge technology and then added to the Fabricating and Laser Pavilion, additive manufacturing technology has earned its stand-alone spotlight, in the way of a new Additive Manufacturing Pavilion, at IMTS 2016, which runs from Sept. 12-17, 2016.

“Additive manufacturing is incredibly dynamic, and in order to see new materials, new design ideas and new production techniques, you need to attend IMTS 2016,” says Peter R. Eelman, Vice President – Exhibitions & Communications at AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology.  Eelman emphasizes that the term additive manufacturing encompasses a collection of diverse technologies that includes material providers, 3D printers and associated equipment such as sintering furnaces, design and production software, scanners that capture points to create a parametric design and 3D printing service centers.

Pavilion exhibitors include ExOne, EOS of North America, 3D Systems, Stratasys, HP, Optomec, Proto Labs, EnvisionTEC, Cideas, DM3D Technology, SCIAKY, 3rd Dimension Industrial 3D Printing, Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies, GPI Prototype & Manufacturing Services, Linear AMS — and more still being added.
