Slideshow: Trends and Technology at IMTS 2016

The size and scope of a show like IMTS makes it impossible to cover everything of interest, but here's a taste of the technology and trends we were taking note of this year.

Like the more than 115,000 show registrants, the editors of Modern Machine Shop did their level best to see as many of the record-number 2,407 exhibitors at this year’s International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS), a show in which additive manufacturing, data-driven manufacturing and robotics were prominent trends. However, therein lies the challenge of creating a comprehensive post-show wrap-up. In fact, the size and scope of IMTS makes it impossible to create such a report that would do the show justice. Therefore, we instead provide you with the following collection of interesting discoveries we unearthed at the show.
