CFE Media and Hannover Messe have joined with IMTS to produce the Industrial Automation North America pavilion. Part of the IANA event will be the 2012 IANA Global Automation & Manufacturing Summit, a two-day conference that will bring together top global experts on topics of automation effectiveness, mobility and secuirty, and an in-depth look at the issue of workforce development.

IANA is one of six additional conference at IMTS 2012. They include:

  • Motion, Drives & Automation Conference
  • Midwest Clean Tech 2012
  • ISA Inside: Training Sessions at Industrial Automation North America
  • EHS Today's America's Safest Companies
  • TRAM3 Aerospace Conference – Trends in Advanced Machining, Manufacturing and Materials

When we think about IMTS, we think about the latest and best technologies available for today’s In addition, the IMTS 2012 Conference. The conference topics and speakers are focused on providing attendees a wealth of information regarding best practices for resolving day-to-day problems on the manufacturing floor.

There are 72 presentations scheduled during the week of IMTS 2012, which encompass five topic tracts — materials, quality/metrology, manufacturing technology, alternative manufacturing processes, and plant operations
