IMTS show returns to Chicago

The International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) will take place September 9–14 at McCormick Place in Chicago.

Owned and produced by AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology, IMTS draws the creators, builders, sellers, and drivers of manufacturing technology.

Attendees will discover advanced manufacturing solutions that include innovations in CNC machining, automation, robotics, additive, software, inspection, and transformative digital technologies.

It is the largest manufacturing technology show and marketplace in the Western Hemisphere. With more than 1.2 million square feet of exhibit space, the show attracts visitors from more than 110 countries. IMTS 2022 had 86,307 registrants, featured 1,816 exhibiting companies, saw over 7,600 people attend educational events, and included a Student Summit that introduced the next generation to manufacturing. 

The show features a Tooling & Workholding Sector that will include demonstrations of automated systems that integrate multiple functions, enabling users to increase precision and boost productivity with existing staff.

“If a tool or workholding product or process can be digitized, you can count on exhibitors showcasing an innovative new solution at IMTS 2024,” says Peter R. Eelman, chief experience officer, AMT. “High-technology cutting tools deliver a proven productivity payback, while advanced workholding combines accuracy and repeatability while increasing unattended run time. The Tooling & Workholding Sector will offer new ways of working more efficiently for shops of every size.”
