Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers’ Association (IMTMA) is organising a combined IMTEX in its 75th year. IMTEX 2022, IMTEX Forming 2022, Tooltech & Digital Manufacturing will be held at the Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC) from January 20-26, 2022.

Both IMTEX 2022 and IMTEX Forming 2022 exhibitions will provide ample opportunities for visitors to witness the latest technological advancements in the field of machine tool and manufacturing which will propel business activities. Concurrent show, Tooltech will showcase cutting tools, sub-systems and accessories, CAD/ CAM, etc. Digital Manufacturing, also held concurrently, will feature additive manufacturing and evolutionary Industry 4.0 concepts. The live display of technologies will enable visitors from various industry sectors to take informed decisions.

Ravi Raghavan, President, IMTMA, said, “IMTEX today occupies a premier position in the exhibition landscape as South Asia’s largest show on manufacturing technology. Every change and shift in metal cutting and metal forming will be showcased at this edition. Manufacturing sector has been doing well on the back of several reforms initiated in the recent past which has been reflected in the machine tool industry’s growth figures with a record 25% increase in consumption as against previous year.”

Speaking about the current situation, V Anbu, Director General & CEO, IMTMA and BIEC, said, “Exhibitor response to IMTEX has been very encouraging. Over 600 exhibitors from as many as 18 countries will showcase innovations in metal cutting and metal forming in an exhibition space of around 70,000 square metres in 5 exhibition halls. A sizeable number of Indian and foreign companies will be participating. Germany, Spain, Taiwan and the United States of America will be setting up country pavilions.”

IMTMA in organizing IMTEX 2022 is adhering to all Covid appropriate safety guidelines laid down by the government. Entry is allowed for only fully vaccinated visitors, i.e. those who have taken 2 doses. Other safety measures such as deployment of trained personnel to monitor visitor movement, digital payment at food courts, pre-registration and “no spot registrations” as in the past, will go a long way in making IMTEX 2022 a “Safe Exhibition”. 

IMTMA is the apex body and single point of contact for machine tool industry in India. IMTMA plays a crucial role in the growth and development of the machine tool industry in the country. IMTMA’s initiatives include policy advocacy, export promotion, trade fairs, mega events, training, seminars, technology missions, publications, etc. IMTMA formed in 1946 is 75 years old, has a membership of over 460 companies and represents 90% of the organised machine tool and allied equipment manufacturers in India.
