Recap of International Manufacturing Trade Show 2014

Friday, September 19th, 2014

The International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago, IL was very well attended this year with over 2,000 exhibitors and 115,000 visitors in attendance.

The BMS booth displayed both the Elecro-Mate broaching machine and Dyna-Mate broaching machine in live action.  Our goals by having these machines in our booth were to be able to display our broaching capabilities, and, to show guests broaching machines that are able to consistently perform under the demands of 24 X 7 production environments.
