PM's August IMTS issue.
Unless you’ve been under a rock for the past 8 months then you know that IMTS 2014 starts in Chicago on September 8. It’s the biggest manufacturing "ta da" in North America.
This is the 30th edition of the biennial get together, and this year promises to be a record setter. More than 1.2 million square feet of exhibit space will house 1,900 companies who, in turn, will bring 15,000 machines, controls, components and other cool stuff for manufacturers.
Not everyone can attend this extravaganza, which is unfortunate. In lieu of visiting the show, which I recommend highly, there are ways to give you a taste of IMTS from the comfort of your chair. Check out Production Machining’s August issue digital edition and the IMTS show coverage (page 49). To look at Modern Machine Shop’s IMTS coverage, click here. Neither is as good as being there, but somebody has to mind the store.
