The Buzz on Manufacturing Technology from IMTS 2016

Sept. 20, 2016
After months of previewing new manufacturing technology — machinery and devices, tooling, automation, programming software, etc. — the International Manufacturing Technology Show 2016 is in the books, leaving some first impressions and lasting ideas that will shape manufacturing and technology going forward.

We have spent the past five months previewing new manufacturing technology — machinery and devices, tooling, automation, programming software, etc. — preparing to see and learn more at the International Manufacturing Technology Show 2016: there is still plenty of time to review the details of all that was exhibited at McCormick Place, and some of what was new there will become the basis of future developments in precision manufacturing. But first, let’s look at the ideas that are shaping manufacturing and technology from IMTS 2016.
