Smartforce Student Summit


For The Smartforce Student Summit at IMTS 2020

The Smartforce Student Summit is returning to IMTS 2020 in Hall C at McCormick Place on September 14-19, 2020. Registration will open in March 2020.

The Student Summit will feature more interactive exhibits than ever before to engage students and reveal to educators our industry’s vision of the manufacturing technology classroom of the future, today!

Transformational technologies are continuing to change the face of U.S. manufacturing. Commonly known as Industry 4.0, or Smart Manufacturing, these changes call for a comprehensive update to the educational programs, credentials and degrees that prepare for the job functions of Manufacturing Workforce 4.0.

Key features of the Summit will include:

  • 5-axis machining
  • Augmented Reality/Virtual Reality (AR/VR) applications
  • The Digital Twin in manufacturing
  • Robots, Cobots and Mechatronics
  • Advances in CAD and CAM software
  • The launch of new NIMS credentials that match industry needs

We’ll see you at the Smartforce Student Summit at IMTS 2020!
