Sponsored by the US-based Association for Manufacturing Technology, the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) 2016 was held in the US during September 12-17, 2016.

Held biannually (the previous show was in 2014), IMTS 2016 was the 31st occasion the event, which is North America’s largest industrial trade show, had been held.

IMTS 2016 featured more than 2,000 exhibiting companies in more than 130,000 square meters of exhibit space at McCormick Place, a convention center in Chicago, Illinois. The event attracted nearly 114,000 buyers and sellers from more than 112 countries.

The exhibiting companies are leading manufacturers from industries including metal cutting, tooling systems/workholding, fabricating/laser/additive manufacturing, abrasive machining/sawing/finishing, controls & CAD–CAM, EDM, gear generation, and machine components/cleaning/environmental products. The exhibiting companies display their equipment in product category pavilions that allow buyers to fulfill their objectives in a very smooth and efficient manner.

We will introduce two small Japanese companies that exhibited at the 2016 show. The next show will be held in 2018, and we encourage you to consider exhibiting or attending as a visitor.
