IMTS 2016 Show September 12-17, 2016

McCormick Place, Chicago, IL

IMTS 2016 lands September 12-17, in Chicago. It's the 31st edition of the manufacturing technology show and will welcome more than 2000 exhibiting companies that will occupy 1.3 million sq. ft. of exhibit space at the McCormick Place complex. Among the exhibitors of metal-fabricating and forming equipment—including waterjet- and laser-cutting machines, press brakes, welding equipment and the like—are more than a dozen suppliers of additive-manufacturing technology. They're housed in a new Additive Manufacturing pavilion at this year’s edition of IMTS.
