Day One of IMTS 2018, new metal 3D printing technology and more - From 3d printing industry.

3D Printing Industry has returned to Chicago for the 2018 edition of IMTS. Held in every even-numbered year, IMTS is North America’s leading manufacturing technology show. The 2,123 booths cover 1,424,232 sq. ft., and final visitor numbers are expected to exceed 120,000 by the end of the week. One attendee with a background in the computer industry told me that IMTS reminded him of COMDEX at its peak.

But visitor numbers are not the only impressive stat. Over 25 million kilos of industrial equipment are loaded into (and out of) McCormick Place. The venue is also the largest convention center in North America, and IMTS 2018 is the first event to occupy all four buildings.

AMT’s Peter R. Eelman explains that, “The rapid growth of digital technology, automation and additive manufacturing are especially driving interest. The booming manufacturing economy means visitors have capital and are ready to invest.”
