If manufacturing is the heart, Gardner Business Media is the pulse. As publisher of Modern Machine Shop and Additive Manufacturing magazines, Gardner reports on today's manufacturing technology industry and the disruptive technologies changing the industry.

Gardner monitors the industry 24/7 and delivers manufacturing technology information in blogs, webinars, newsletters, and notable conferences, such as the Top Shops and Additive Manufacturing Conferences, where AMT – The Association for Manufacturing Technology, is also a sponsor. (AMT owns and produces IMTS.) At IMTS, Gardner Business Media features a large booth celebrating the people and trends of the industry, the Top Shops Awards, and an area for IMTS visitors to network.

Gardner's veteran editorial team identifies trends that can easily go unnoticed. “The team travels daily into shops and facilities to hear about industry challenges and new ideas. One day they’re learning how shops are using data or plan to use data based on lloT and artificial intelligence. On another day, they'll talk to leaders about their precision measurement systems, virtual reality, and even additive manufacturing to optimize growth,” says Bryce Ellis, Modern Machine Shop publisher.

Gardner Business Media is partnering with AMT at MT360, a new event connecting manufacturers to the software developers and investors of Silicon Valley. Gardner, one of more than 20 partners, will showcase its media expertise in the MT360 Virtual Factory. The inaugural conference aims to accelerate the integration of emerging technologies into manufacturing and takes place from June 18-20, in Santa Clara, Calif.

“Time passes, conditions change, the world progresses – and those who are found keeping pace with the new order of things are those who are young enough in mind and spirit to recognize the value of the new and to make themselves a part of it.”
Don G. Gardner, Founder, Gardner Business Media, June 1928

“We understand the importance of these technologies to stay competitive,” says Ellis. “There's immeasurable value in connecting traditional manufacturing with venture capital and Silicon Valley, and we want to be a part of that.”

As part of MT360's Virtual Theater, Pete Zelinski, Editor-in-Chief of Modern Machine Shop and Additive Manufacturing, will conduct four interviews with manufacturing leaders throughout the conference. They include:

  • Additive Manufacturing for Production with Tim Weber, HP Global Head of 3D metals
  • Future of Collaborative Automation with Patrick Sobalvarro, Veo Robotics President & CEO
  • Shifting to Additive with Glynn Fletcher, EOS North America President
  • Keys to Success with Collaborative Automation with Fabian Schmahl, President & CEO of Thyssendrupp Bilstein of America. Inc.

Gardner, a family-owned company, consistently aims to show best practices and practical, how-to information to explain technology and help its customers be competitive in today’s challenging environment. While things have changed immensely since it was founded in 1928, Gardner’s mission remains the same.
