Emerging Technologies Academy Advanced Manufacturing Focus
New Product Development = New Markets & Increased Profits

IMI’s Emerging Technologies Academy Advanced Manufacturing goal is to show manufacturing companies, state and regional government development agencies, colleges & universities, manufacturing organizations and others the potential of advanced manufacturing technologies and to introduce available resources so that manufacturing industries can successfully innovate for their future success. 

Advanced Manufacturing Technologies will be a valuable contributor to the manufacturing industries’ growth by utilizing available and developing technologies to efficiently (in terms of cost, time & materials) manufacture products.  We need to work not only hard, but smart, to realize the potential benefits offered by advanced manufacturing technologies. 

IMI’s Emerging Technologies Academy Advanced Manufacturing will offer six 1 day courses on technologies that can be implemented and utilized to assist YOU in taking advantage of these tools to expand your product line, increase production efficiency, better manage production costs
essentially to increase your business and profits!

Thus, we urge you to be sure that your company, agency or organization is represented at IMI’s Emerging Technologies AcademyAdvanced Manufacturing on September 6, 2017.

We are all aware of the importance of manufacturing jobs in strengthening and revitalizing the U.S and world economies. Everyone agrees that manufacturing growth is essential to a successful economic future.  But how can it be accomplished?

Historically, innovation has been a key ingredient in the development, expansion and growth of manufacturing industries.  And innovation is still required to foster industrial development.  While talent, infrastructure and investment are all key components, both the manufacturing landscape and the required tools have changed in our current digital world.

The incorporation of new manufacturing techniques and materials to provide added value, improved product performance, enhanced production economics, etc. is essential to the development and implementation of profitable new products and expanded markets. Thus, IMI’s Emerging Technologies Academy Advanced Manufacturing is designed to provide the necessary insights and information to enable companies to assess their future usage of emerging advanced manufacturing technologies. Consider it your “Jump-Start for the Future.”

We feel strongly that emerging advanced manufacturing technologies will play a most important role in the future of the U.S. and World economies as well as the strengthening of manufacturing companies and industries. Everyone seems to agree that manufacturing growth is essential to the world’s economic future - But companies must incorporate emerging technologies into their production systems to stimulate successful new manufacturing endeavors.

Understanding the fundamentals of emerging technologies is the first prerequisite to all development efforts.   IMI’s Emerging Technologies Academy – Advanced Manufacturing offers a series of six 1 day courses.  Each course will address a specific technology addressing topics such as:
