JULY 2018 Additive Manufacturing NEWS 8 Stephanie Hendrixson / Senior Editor The 2018 edition of IMTS—The International Manufacturing Technology show will include more additive manufacturing technolo- gy and content than ever before. Organized by AMT—The Associa- tion For Manufacturing Technology, the trade show is hosted every two years at McCormick Place in Chi- cago, Illinois. Here's where to find additive manufacturing at the show: • The Additive Manufacturing Pavilion. Located on Level 3 of the West Building, the AM Pavilion features 56 exhibitors, up from 21 at the 2016 trade show. At its entrance is AMT's Emerging Technology Center (ETC) focused on additive manufacturing, one of two ETCs. • The show floor. Additive manufacturing technology will also be on display in other pavilions including the Metal Cutting Pavilion located in the South Building and the Controls & CAD-CAM Pavil- ion in the East Building. See the section beginning on page 42 for a sampling of AM products to be displayed throughout McCormick Place, and search the exhibitor list on • Events. The Additive Manufac- turing Conference returns to IMTS for 2018, happening September 11-12. With a program curated by the editors of Additive Manufacturing Magazine, the conference focuses on industrial applications of 3D printing and AM technologies.
