The American Gear Manufacturers Association has evolved its trade show.
What was formerly Gear Expo is now the Motion + Power Technology Expo
(MPT Expo), an event intended to represent the entire motion and power
transmission supply chain. As part of the expansion of the show’s scope,
AGMA has partnered with the NFPA (National Fluid Power Association) to
include a fluid power pavilion and additional educational sessions.
IMTS 2018 had its fair share of machine tools, 3D printers and advanced robotics. Meanwhile, the East Hall — home to Hannover Messe USA — took a more systematic approach, highlighting the smart components and techniques that will be integral in developing the digital factory of the future.
