A Week-Long Celebration of Innovation and Manufacturing in Honor of IMTS
This week marked the beginning of The International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) at McCormick Place. All around the city, manufacturers, makers, engineers, suppliers, and technologists came together to discuss manufacturing innovation. But, the action isn’t restricted to just the tradeshow floor. At mHUB, we are celebrating with a week of events focusing on innovation and technology in manufacturing.
NYC CNC with John Saunders
mHUB kicked off the week by welcoming more than 400 guests to a Manufacturing Entrepreneurship Summit, co-hosted by John Saunders of NYC CNC.
The event featured conversations with industry experts on CNC innovation, lean manufacturing and knife making. Additionally, representatives from Autodesk lead a discussion about fixturing and CAM tips for Fusion 360. Throughout the day, guests participated in hands-on equipment and software demonstrations with Fusion 360 and Tormach.
While Sunday focused mainly on CNC and subtractive manufacturing, Monday-Wednesday’s events discussed additive manufacturing and 3D printing. CONTEXT, a 3D printing analyst service, kicked off the work week at mHUB with an additive manufacturing conference bringing together global representatives from major 3D printing companies such as Stratasys and EOS.
formlabs Road Show
We were thrilled to have formlabs in our space for its 3D printing roadshow on Tuesday evening. More than 100 manufacturers, engineers, and entrepreneurs gathered to discuss the transformation of traditional manufacturing and how 3D printing is driving changes and impact across the supply chain. formlabs and Onshape also lead a training workshop on the Form 2 printer and CAD software.
The mHUB Team Hits the Trade Show Floor
In addition to all the great events and programming happening at mHUB during the week, our team and members joined the crowd at IMTS to see the latest technology in manufacturing. Among the exhibitors was mHUB member company, Amper Technologies, showcasing their practical approach to digitizing machines.
