Today's Technology Center (TTC)

Today's Technology Center at IMTS 2018

Presented by GIE Media, TTC displays the end results of the latest manufacturing technology in the motor vehicle, aerospace and medical industries. Visitors will get an up-close look into:

2018 Jeep Wrangler

The iconic utility vehicle has been redesigned to take advantage of cutting-edge safety and lightweighting technologies. The steel frame is made mostly from ultra-high-strength alloys, and the door, rear gate, and hood panels are aluminum. The lower vehicle weight improves fuel economy without sacrificing the vehicle's ability to dominate off-road.

2019 Ram 1500

Like the Wrangler, Fiat Chrysler’s pickup is a study in lightweighting. Massive weight cuts from the steel frame allow the truck to tow and haul more while still improving fuel economy. The vehicle also integrates safety systems into its design including a hidden camera, LiDAR, and other systems – keeping sensors safe from road conditions.

An “X-ray view” of systems below the aircraft’s skin is exposed on its right side while the aircraft’s delivery paint scheme is only on its left side. Visitors may sit in the aircraft’s cockpit and experience the cabin found on production models of this five-passenger, twin-engine personal jet that can fly at altitudes up to 41,000 feet and cruise at speeds up to 430 mph.

State-of-the-art medical devices and equipment

Explore the materials, tools, and products used to manufacture medical devices and equipment with the latest precision technology through videos and displays of the final products such as knee, hip, and shoulder implants to stints, pacemakers, wearables, and more.
