The Japan International Machine Tool Fair (JIMTOF), one of the largest machine tool exhibitions in the world, will be held in Tokyo for six days from November 8-13, 2022. The theme of JIMTOF 2022 is “Open the door to the future-Meet the technologies moving the world forward”. Under this main concept, various joint events will be held to introduce the world of manufacturing from diverse perspectives.
As the second part of our JIMTOF2022 special feature, SEISANZAI Japan introduces the joint events taking place during the exhibition that you don’t want to miss.
Admission registration has begun on September 1, 2022, through the Official Website (www.jimtof.org).
The main program of the lectures, seminars, talk sessions, and exhibits held during the Fair is as follows.
The highlight of JIMTOF 2022 will be the Special Event taking place in the South Exhibition Hall bringing together AM/3D printing-related products and technologies. Additive Manufacturing is a prominent trend that is expected to grow. It is also gaining attention in the machine tool industry, where the needs are diversified, as an innovative technology within the manufacturing process that can reduce the number of parts needed, shorten the lead time, and enable high-mix low-volume production. In addition to the “Exhibit Area”, a “Special Seminar Venue” will be set up in the Area. At the Special Seminar Venue, more than 15 lectures on AM/3D printing and a workshop given by the exhibitors will be held.
