IMTS 2018

The biennial International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) is the largest and longest-running manufacturing technology trade show in the United States. Running during even-numbered years in September at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois, the show is a blend of the here-and-now and the what’s-to-come in terms of manufacturing technology, at last count covering more than 1.3 million square feet of exhibition space and including more than 2,400 exhibiting companies. This Zone houses information about the most recent show, including products on display, as well as commentary from the Modern Machine Shop editors about the trends and technology they saw there.
