"We again have good continuity this year," says AMT's Vice President—Exhibitions & Business Development, Peter Eelman, "with a spotlight on additive manufac- turing and our partnership with Local Motors." AMT is also pushing the envelope on intelligent software, energy effi ciency and more. In 2014 the ETC featured Local Motors' "Strati," a crowd-source designed electric car that was printed and assembled right on the show fl oor using additive manu- facturing technology. e car was a media sensation, providing proof of concept on what is possible employ- ing new materials, additive process- ing and collaborative engineering. is year the ETC is stepping it up with an entire 3D printed dwelling. Led by Department of Energy's Oak Ridge National Laboratory (ORNL) along with industry partners, the AIME project—Additive Manufac- turing Integrated Energy— com- bines additive technology with an integrated energy system that shares See "AMT's ETC" page 93 Introducing the MMS Top Shops Exhibit I enter McCormick Place's West Hall.

What's notable about this list is that one might have thought that an IMTS would be pretty much wholly focused on the material removal, material forming, workholding and tooling. dent, points out, today things like soft- ware, additive manufacturing, mate- rial handling and automated systems also are playing an ever increasingly important role in improving produc- tivity. What's more, these technolo- gies can often be implemented in an economical, step-by-step means to achieve signifi cant benefi t in output. For example, "you can buy one robot and simply begin to improve that way," he says. days, there are a lot of terms bandied about in the manufacturing space that can cause one's eyes to glaze over, "But buried within that are a lot of solutions that don't require a ton of capital that can have a big impact on a company's business." on machines and to connect machines via MTConnect—a standard that AMT AMT president, Doug Woods Visit us at IMTS booth E-4502 to learn more usa.siemens.com/imts Digitalization in machine tool manufacturing Control your future — see how Siemens can bring a greater return on your machines, your people and your operations.
