IMTS is here, and I had the opportunity to preview some pretty cool exhibits yesterday along with other members of the press. I’m talking about some truly remarkable innovations involving additive manufacturing and Industry 4.0.

Before I share a glimpse of these “jewels” of IMTS 2016, I’ll let readers know that, according to Peter R. Eelman, vice president of exhibitions and business development for show organizer AMT, this IMTS will be the largest one ever with regard to manufacturing. In fact, Eelman says the show has expanded so that exhibitor booths – a record-setting 2,407 of them – can be found throughout the more than 1.3 million square feet of show floor space within McCormick Place and this doesn’t count the miles of aisles attendees will be walking.

“These are the building blocks of manufacturing,” Eelman says. “Every manufacturing tool, machine, process and technology brings together the factory of the future.”

So come out to see what’s new, and take a few minutes to look at this slideshow so you won’t miss some worthwhile experiences. Have a great IMTS!
