IMTS 2018 MachMotion
MachMotion participated in the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago, Illinois from September 10-15, 2018. The 2018 International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) broke records with more than 129,000 attendees, 2,500 exhibiting companies, and almost 1.5 million square feet of exhibiting space. “IMTS 2018 set records because manufacturing technology has grown exponentially since the last show [in 2016],” says Peter R. Eelman, Vice President of Exhibitions & Business Development at AMT – the Association for Manufacturing Technology. “The rapid growth of digital technology, automation and additive manufacturing are especially driving interest. The booming manufacturing economy means visitors have capital and are ready to invest.”
