What the IMTS Community Has to Say...

IMTS is experiential. It’s the place where I talk with influencers and market leaders. Making connections gives me a stronger network and broader team to execute. That’s how highly successful companies operate.
Callye Keen, Design Manager – Kform
We saw new technology at IMTS we didn't know existed – it blew us away. It's common to experience that ‘wow’ moment once or twice at IMTS. We just never know what we're going to find, but we know if it's worth finding, it will be there.
Bob Bechtold, President – Harbec, Inc.
There's nothing more exciting than getting something new at the shop, so when we see a potential new addition at the show, everyone dreams about the possibilities. Often, we end up purchasing that new technology, and it makes jobs better.
Julie Hoban, CEO – JTD Enterprises
Attending IMTS is like getting a glimpse into the future. Some of the technologies on display are so new that you don't always realize the significance of what you're seeing at the time. There are revolutionary disruptive technologies out there that get introduced at every IMTS, and it blows me away every time.
Bill Seyferth, President – Eagle CNC Technologies
In this age when people are doing more shopping online and retail stores are closing, IMTS is still really important for my purchasing decisions. I can touch it, pick it up, look at it and talk with the tool reps. It's all in one place, which is fantastic. On his wish list for IMTS 2018 is a large VTL boring mill, a slant bed lathe with live tooling for handling larger parts at higher capacity and more.
Peter Claus, CNC Supervisor – HFW Industries
At IMTS, we are able to see more efficient, better technologies. IMTS helped me become who I am today because of all the different things that are there. Part of my job is helping the doers in our company accomplish their jobs more easily, so I challenge them to bring two new technologies from IMTS 2018.
Cassie Haupers, Vice President – Swiss Precision Machining, Inc.
