Technology has changed the way I cover an event like the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS). It used to be that a notepad was sufficient for all the information I wanted to capture. This year, it’s likely I’ll use a video camera, too.
If you are a repeat attendee to IMTS, perhaps technology has subtly changed your experience of the show as well. Smart phones and similar data devices are now so common that there’s a good chance you’ll have one with you.
With that in mind, here is something that might be useful during your time away: a selection of short videos on topics relevant to CNC machining. Watch any or all of these videos during your downtime in Chicago. Let them suggest other ways to improve your process back home, and perhaps even other technologies to investigate at the show.
