Doug Woods and Peter Bagwell at IMTS 2012

AMT President Doug Woods and Product Engineer Peter Bagwell at IMTS 2012

As I opened the mail yesterday I found my IMTS 2013 calendar, and along with an invitation to reserve the dates for 2014.

September 8 – 13, 2014,

Looking back at the 2012 IMTS show, I really can’t express how happy I was to attend. The show is in a beautiful facility. The pavilions are well organized. The program is up-to-date and the show materials (including maps and daily updates) are colorful and intuitive. I’ve been attending the show for as long as I can remember, and it did not disappoint.

As was the case in 2010, I was able to find new suppliers for my company, Polygon Solutions Inc., and network with a few potential customers. I ran into some old friends from the Detroit area, and new colleagues from Florida, showing what a small world it is in the manufacturing community. Hardinge Inc. also used our new rotary broaching brake in one of their machine demonstrations which was my personal favorite.

If you’re in manufacturing, I suggest you mark your calendar and do not miss IMTS 2014. – Peter
