A First-Time IMTS Attendee Describes The Show

Written by Will Pitts

The 2018 edition of the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) was a great show for attendees and for the exhibitors alike. As a first-time visitor, I was awed by the sheer number of attendees and the grand scale of the exhibits. The theme of the IMTS 2018, “Where Dreamers and Doers Connect”, proved to be very apropos, for many new connections made.

I was able to meet some of my LinkedIn contacts in person, as well as some of our distributors and OEM partners. I was there for only one day, and although my Fit-Bit recorded 7.8 miles and over 21,500 steps, I was not able to cover the entire show.

AQE was located in booth 236349 of the North Building. Our new display backdrop was debuted, as seen in the photos below.

New Products

For 2018 Air Quality Engineering, Inc. introduced our new, MistBuster® Sloped Plenum. This innovative plenum is designed with a low-profile, and with integrated machine-mount legs. The low profile reduces the overall height of the installation, and the sloped configuration allows for the coolant to drain more efficiently. The elimination of a separate machine-mount stand improves the ease of installation, and reduces the overall installation investment.

It was great to see the wonderful displays and to meet some of my LinkedIn connections in person. One of those connections is pictured here. Mark McAbery is from Bee Clean Specialties out of Schaumburg, IL.
