Excitement is growing for IMTS 2022 – The International Manufacturing Technology Show, taking place Sept. 12-17, at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois.
IMTS 2022 will encompass all levels and all four buildings of McCormick Place. More than 1,200 companies are exhibiting covering 1.1 million square feet of exhibition space. Check out the show at IMTS.com/show22 and see who’s exhibiting at IMTS.com/floorplan.
In addition to the exhibits, the six-day event will feature close to a dozen conferences and workshops including the IMTS Conference and tailored programs for job shops, women in manufacturing, and design and application engineers.
The theme for IMTS 2022 is Digital Manufacturing. Implemented. “As manufacturers wrestle with supply chain and workforce challenges, they are increasingly searching and adopting digital manufacturing practices and products,” says Peter Eelman, AMT vice president and CXO. “IMTS 2022 will be replete with CNC and additive machine builders; CAD-CAM, modeling, and simulation software; metrology systems; and other digitally-enabled tools.”
“We can expect to see transformative technologies embedded within much of our industry’s traditional machines using automation and robotics, additive manufacturing, augmented and virtual reality, digital twin, generative design, and more,” says Tim Shinbara, AMT vice president and chief technology officer.
IMTS 2022 will again host AMT’s Emerging Technology Center presenting advancements from the Manufacturing Demonstration Facility at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
