Steve Venters and Derrick Baker recently visited the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) at McCormick Center in Chicago. The purpose of the visit was threefold:
1) See firsthand the new technologies and innovative manufacturing solutions being offered by show exhibitors; 2) Connect with current and possible new vendors; and 3) Investigate joint opportunities with show attendees.
During our visit we were able to observe everything from robotics to process automation, new ERP software to 3-D printing, precision laser cutting to material handling systems. It is always fascinating to see the advances being made in manufacturing technology from year to year and the 2016 IMTS show was no exception.
