MMS Top Shops at IMTS

MMS Top Shops at IMTS

Modern Machine Shop invited visitors to celebrate their 90th anniversary in their Top Shops attraction by telling their story and adding their photos to a one-of-a-kind photo mosaic. The MMS Top Shops exhibit featured 90 years of magazine covers.

In 1928, Gardner Business Media introduced Modern Machine Shop to the machining industry to amplify the industry's people, their stories and achievements.


Modern Machine Shop, Cover to Cover

Featuring more than 1,000 Modern Machine Shop covers, this display began with the debut issue in June 1928, and spanned nine decades of manufacturing history concluding with Modern Machine Shop's September 2018 IMTS issue.

The covers tell stories about new applications being developed, new technologies being applied, new innovations and new industries emerging. Most importantly, they tell stories about people – manufacturing's dreamers and doers – leaders like you that understand the need to improve and help create the stories we tell.

Below you will find a gallery of the cover display and the manufacturing professionals that helped us #CNCtheFuture @ IMTS 2018:
