About Emerging Technology Center
Sponsored by AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology, which owns and operates IMTS, the ETC has become the “must-visit” exhibit and is renowned around the world for showcasing state-of-the-art and disruptive technologies that will impact manufacturing in the years to come. At IMTS 2004, the ETC made its debut as a place to educate, inform and excite the manufacturing community about ground-breaking innovations specific to the advanced technology industry. For the first time, IMTS will feature two AMT ETCs!
In the Additive Manufacturing ETC, visitors will experience demonstrations of the newest breakthroughs in materials, speeds and technologies. Highlights: Die-in-a-Day Scavenger Hunt, led by Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL), AM Research from ORNL, and the America Makes Knowledge Bar.
In the Digital Transformation ETC, visitors will experience many digital manufacturing innovations from free operating standards for machine shops and connected machines to cyberphysical security developed by leading technology organizations.
