The 2016 edition of the International Manufacturing Technology Show is on track to be one of the largest IMTS events ever at McCormick Place in Chicago from September 12-17. This special sneak peek provides technical reviews of some of the machinery, tooling, systems and accessories that will be exhibited to help you get a head start on navigating the show floor and managing your time while you’re there.
This pavilion is the home of metrology equipment and systems that keep processes on track for absolute confidence and security in the quality of output, including equipment that can check the accuracy of machines to protect a shop’s investments. Shops can learn how to reduce their necessity for stand-alone work cells through increased inspection abilities for both materials and features. Here is a sneak peek at some of the metrology equipment and systems that will be exhibited on the show floor:
Portable Coordinate Measuring Machine for High-End 3D Measurement
The new ROMER Absolute Arm 77 Series PCMM from Hexagon is ideal for safety-critical applications in aerospace, defense, medical, and more.
