Airtech Pvt Ltd


The customer footfall was highly satisfactory this IMTEX. The conversion rate is also exceptionally high. IMTEX has always been a catalyst for order bookings, and this year is no exception. In addition to generating orders, the exhibition provides an opportunity to introduce one’s brand to potential customers who may become future business associates.

Vikrant Saigal, Managing Director


APM Technologies 3D Pvt Ltd

IMTEX 2023 was a great platform for the Machine Tool and Manufacturing industry to renew relationships, explore collaborations and partnerships, and network. The response to our products was overwhelmingly positive, with a large number of orders and queries for our 3D Scanning and 3D Printing products from both new and existing customers.

Anil Gupta, Managing Director


Andreas Maier Workholding Technology Pvt Ltd

IMTEX 23 was a great success, as it happened post-COVID-19 and generated productive leads. We hope to penetrate new customer applications and prove to be the low-cost catalyst to dramatically increase productivity and significantly reduce manufacturing costs.

TV Mohan, Country Head & Managing Director


Blaser Swisslube Solutions Pvt Ltd

It was very encouraging to see customers receptive to Blaser’s offerings. Mid- to senior-level customers across different departments including technical, operations, and purchase, showed keen interest in in-person meetings after IMTEX.  Liquid Tool Solution is our value proposition to our customers. All of us at Blaser are convinced that it is the right way to move forward together with our customers.

Punit Gupta, Managing Director - West Asia (India & SEA)


Chennai Metco Pvt Ltd

In our experience, IMTEX 2023 was among the most responsive editions. The significant increase in footfall could be explained by its taking place after the COVID-induced hiatus. As a result, we noticed a surge in visitor response. It has always been the case with companies like ours to depend on IMTEX for new inquiries for the following year. The inquiries have been excellent so far. It helps us add to the order books. We are highly optimistic about the outcome and anticipate a busy year ahead.

C Renganathan, Managing Director


Chiron India Machine Tools Pvt Ltd

IMTEX 2023 was an opportunity to physically showcase our technology and meet with our existing and potential customers and partners. This presence enabled us to secure new projects, which was certainly beneficial to our business.

Rajesh T Ghashi, Managing Director


FIBRO India Precision Products Pvt Ltd

As the IMTEX exhibition took place after a hiatus of four years, exhibitors and visitors had high expectations of each other. Fortunately, both parties were satisfied with the outcome. The exhibition attracted a lot of visitors seeking solutions to their specific bottlenecks. Nowadays, the focus is not on selling machines, but on providing solutions that benefit both parties in a  mutually beneficial business. Customers are more interested in purchasing solutions that address their bottlenecks or problems rather than just buying a machine.

Vivek Nanivadekar, Executive Director


Gedee Weiler Pvt Ltd

This was the most awaited IMTEX that has provided Gedee Weiler with a significant number of high-quality inquiries for both our high-end and standard machine models. As we look towards the next fiscal year, we see great potential for multitasking machines with integrated automation options in the Indian Machine Tool industry. The increasing demand for good quality machined components in exports has created a need for highly reliable, productive, and affordable machines like those offered by Gedee Weiler. The Indian Manufacturing sector has matured and is now a sought-after sourcing destination for machined components worldwide. This has led to a growing demand for high-technology machines, and IMTEX has come at the right time, providing a boost to Indian MTBs (Machine Tool Builders).

Jyoti CNC Automation Ltd

IMTEX is an important trade exhibition for the buyer and seller community, providing a platform for networking and gaining insights into market needs and wants. The exhibition not only helps to build confidence but also results in tangible business benefits. The discussions and interactions with decision-makers lead to the development of new strategies, policies, and products, paving the way for future growth and success. It is a highly valued event that provides a valuable opportunity for industry professionals to connect and collaborate.

Himanshu Shaparia, President, Sales


Quaker Houghton

The Quaker Houghton team had the chance to engage with both current and potential customers at the event. The team was thrilled to witness the bustling activity within the Indian Manufacturing sector, with many existing and new players planning significant investments. This growth is driven by the Government-backed Production Linked Incentive scheme and spans across traditional automotive and auto-component manufacturing, as well as emerging sectors such as Aerospace and Defence. IMTEX 2023 created numerous business opportunities and avenues for Quaker Houghton to showcase its world-class solutions and participate in India’s vibrant Manufacturing industry.

Rohit Bhale, Senior Commercial Manager


Rajamane Industries Pvt Ltd

The exhibitors showcased a wide range of technology at its best, ranging from entry-level to advanced and large machines. They displayed machines catering to many of the sunrise sectors of the Government. As a result, I anticipate a surge in orders after the first quarter of FY 23-24. Given the Government's emphasis on infrastructure spending, I expect to see a plethora of orders for all the machine tool builders.

Rajendra Rajamane, Managing Director


S&T Engineers Pvt Ltd

IMTEX 2023 helped us boost order books for the upcoming fiscal year. The event helped us secure several new projects and expansions from existing customers, particularly in the aluminum extrusion industry for applications like electric vehicles and lighting.

T Venkatesan, Vice President

More than the numbers, we were glad to see IMTEX take place in-person after four years. It gave us an opportunity to fill the gap of missing physical presence, meet, and talk to our customers and partners. It was the perfect opportunity for us to showcase our Digitalization & Control offerings.

IMTEX 2023 definitely helped us forge new alliances and partnerships with major OEMs. People from big machine builders had the opportunity to see our products and evaluate the quality standards we follow. This goes a long way toward establishing confidence in our ability to manufacture products for these OEMs.
