IMTS 2016 Recap
We’re fresh off the best IMTS in recent history! With over 115,000 attendees and 2,400 exhibitors over the span of six days, IMTS had the third largest amount of registrations and the highest amount of exhibiting companies ever! We hope that you had the time to see the Mastercam footprint at the show, which truly made the #mastercameverywhere hashtag ring true.
We had representation in over fifty booths at the show, from machines on the floor programmed with Mastercam, integrated solution providers and third party developers, and not to mention the three Mastercam booths situated across the show floor! With nearly 1.4 million square feet of exhibit space, we hope you brought your comfortable shoes and had a chance to make your way to the Mastercam booths in the Lakeside building, North building Smartforce Student Summit, and West Hall at the TRAM Aerospace event.
We had presentations every half hour on Mastercam 2017, the latest and greatest from the best CAM software on the planet. There were also presentations from vertical market solution providers that complement your Mastercam investment, and allow you to achieve a complete manufacturing solution. We had representation from All of that means getting parts on and off the machine quicker and more efficiently, and with confidence.
Our presentations at the end of each day brought representatives from Adion Systems, Mastercam, Robotmaster, Verisurf, WireFreeCNC, and Zoller to demonstrate how to increase bottom-line profits and outperform the competition with integrated technologies. If you attended, you were stepped through an entire manufacturing process using advanced solutions for toolpathing, MES/ERP, tool management/presetting, robotics, metrology, and shop floor management.
Thursday was by far our biggest day at the show. Part of being at events like IMTS is to appreciate those that have helped make Mastercam the #1 CAM software in the industry, our customers. We develop our software through customer feedback and our public beta testing program, which allows us to truly follow the needs of the market. Thursday was a small thank you to the immense help that our Mastercam community provides to us. We had plenty of giveaways in the booth, had a special presentation from our President Meghan West on the future of manufacturing, and at night we had an appreciation event at the Hyatt that had over 150 people in attendance!
At that event, we gave away a seat of Mastercam Mill to those that completed our Scavenger Hunt at the show. Participants took photos and uploaded them to social media with #mastercameverywhere in our booths in the East and North Halls, and partner booths Haas Automation, ISCAR, Mazak, Okuma, Sandvik Coromant, SIEMENS, and Toyoda. They were then entered into the drawing, and we’re happy to say that Harley Holden from South Carolina went home with a seat of Mastercam! Congrats Harley!
