The International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2016, scheduled to be held at McCormick Place, Chicago, USA, from September 12-17, will feature a new Additive Manufacturing Pavilion where visitors to the show will be able to see every component necessary for creating an AM manufacturing cell.
The pavilion will showcase material providers, AM machinery and associated equipment such as sintering furnaces, design and production software, scanners that capture points to create a parametric design and service centres. Several of the leading machine tool providers will demonstrate hybrid machines that integrate AM and traditional machine tool capabilities.
Pavilion exhibitors include ExOne, EOS of North America, 3D Systems, Statasys, HP, Optomec, Proto Labs, EnvisionTEC, Cideas, DM3D Technology, SCIAKY, 3rd Dimension Industrial 3D Printing, Hybrid Manufacturing Technologies, GPI Prototype & Manufacturing Services and Linear AMS.
IMTS 2016 will also feature an Additive Manufacturing Conference scheduled for September 13-14 with the focus on industrial applications of additive technologies for making functional components and end-use production parts, include metallic parts.
