“Digital Manufacturing. Implemented.”—the theme for IMTS reflects advances in technology that are enabling manufacturers to be a part of the digital ecosystem and achieve efficiencies once thought of as unattainable. Expect to see a surge of digital manufacturing solutions throughout IMTS 2022.
Exhibitors, Products, Solutions: More than 1,250 exhibitors are lined up to display new technologies across more than 1,080,000 sq. ft. showcasing the absolute latest in manufacturing equipment and software. Expect to see transformative technologies integrated within much of our industry’s traditional machines using automation and robotics, additive manufacturing, augmented and virtual reality, digital twin, generative design, and more.

The Onshoring Project: For the first time at IMTS, OEMs, subcontractors, and job shops will have the opportunity to convene on achieving and maintaining agile supply chains for North American companies. Meeting face– to– face is an energizing, rewarding, and effective way to form new relationships, solidify existing networks, and exchange ideas. The event aims to facilitate positive change for the North American supply chain. You’ll have the opportunity to:
- Connect with suppliers, OEMs, and manufacturing technology providers.
- Find new metrics, tools, and methods that shift the focus from an almost single reliance on piece-price in sourcing toward a holistic sourcing approach.
- Recognize new considerations for sourcing.
- Understand the true benefits of reshoring and its impact on profit, workforce, and community.
AMT’s Emerging Technology Center (ETC): See what’s on the horizon in manufacturing. The AMT ETC presents advancements that demonstrate the future of manufacturing including many from the Manufacturing Demonstration Facility at the U.S. Department of Energy’s Oak Ridge National Laboratory.
AM4U Area: New for 2022, the AM Pavilion will encompass the AM4U Area, presented by Formnext.
