Whether you are spending this week at McCormick Place in Chicago or not, you have likely heard a stream of chatter surrounding the 2018 International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS). As America’s Largest Manufacturing show featuring over 1,900 exhibitors, IMTS is projected to attract over 125,000 manufacturers looking to better understand the emerging technologies and resources that can help them improve efficiencies and prepare for the future.
According to the Modern Machine Shop article, “Three Emerging Technology Trends to Look for at IMTS 2018”, manufacturers should be seeking out opportunities to learn about digitalization, automation and additive manufacturing. As manufacturers of all sizes look to remain competitive in an ever-evolving landscape even those of us still at home this week are likely asking ourselves, “How can I use these technologies effectively at my company?” The answer is unique to each of us, but it is important to make sure we aren’t falling behind. Whether or not your team is in Chicago at the moment these are key technologies that warrant your attention.
For both manufacturers who are at “home” and those in Chicago attending IMTS this week, you can read the full Modern Machine Shop article here.
