Innovative machinery from around the world will be on display at IMTS – The International Manufacturing Technology Show. Key to maximizing the efficiency and effectiveness of those machines are the tooling and workholding products on display in the West Building at McCormick Place.

For example, attendees will see the introduction of smart tooling that uses Bluetooth technology.

“IMTS 2016 showcases specialized providers with core competencies in unique areas,” says Peter R. Eelman, Vice President - Exhibitions & Business Development, AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology, the parent organization of IMTS. “By focusing intensely on one thing and doing it exceedingly well, tool and work holding companies develop products and technologies that take machine performance and accuracy to new levels.”

Some trends IMTS attendees can expect to see this year include tool holding technologies that are stronger, more rigid and capable of running at higher speeds without unwated vibration. Additionally, look for flexible workholding systems that are more versatile with regard to part configuration setups and platforms, and that set up quickly and with repeatable accuracy.
