IMTS 2018

The biennial International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) is the largest and longest-running manufacturing technology trade show in the United States. Taking place in 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, it covered more than 1.3 million square feet of exhibition space and included more than 2,400 exhibiting companies. This Zone houses information about the show, including products on display, as well as commentary from the editors about trends and technology presented there.
