The Association For Manufacturing Technology’s International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2018, set to take place at McCormick Place in Chicago, Illinois, USA, September 10–15, will host nearly triple the number of exhibitors at its Additive Manufacturing Pavilion compared to the most recent event in 2016. This year’s AM Pavilion will host fifty-six exhibitors, giving visitors access to a wide range of experts on the technology, equipment and materials.

The AM Pavilion will be located Level 3 of the West Building during the event. At the centre of the entrance will be the premier AMT’s Emerging Technology Center (ETC) focused on AM.

One of two ETC’s, this one will offer visitors an overview of AM and demonstrations of the latest breakthroughs in materials, speeds and technologies as recently developed by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), public-private collaborations and exhibiting additive manufacturers.

AM-related technology will also be featured in other pavilions, including within the Methods Machine Tools exhibit in the Metal Cutting Pavilion and as part of AM-specific software exhibits in the Controls & CAD-CAM Pavilion.

In addition to these exhibits, IMTS 2018 will feature two events dedicated to Additive Manufacturing: the Additive Manufacturing Conference, presented by Gardner Business Media, September 11-12, and AppliedAM – Where Additive Minds Meet symposium, presented by EOS North America, September 11-12. Six technical sessions presented as part of the IMTS Conference will also focus on AM technology.

Registration is now open to attend the 2018 event. International visitors may attend the exhibition free of charge, and all visitors can save 25% on conference registrations using promotion code 25IMTSCONF
