Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers’ Association’s flagship event IMTEX FORMING is set to take place from January 19 to 23, 2024 at Bangalore International Exhibition Centre (BIEC), Bengaluru. The 8th edition of Asia’s leading exhibition on metal forming and technologies has been garnering rave response and is poised to turn out to be the largest IMTEX FORMING ever held.

IMTEX FORMING 2024 is set to make history as the most extensive IMTEX FORMING to date. Indian Machine Tool Manufacturers’
Association (IMTMA), the organizer of the influential exhibition, is thrilled with the response from the manufacturing community.

Tooltech, Digital Manufacturing, and Weld Expo will run concurrently. Tooltech 2024 will focus on machine tool accessories, forming tools, die and mold, metrology, and CAD/CAM. Digital Manufacturing will feature the latest innovations in additive manufacturing and Industry 4.0. Weld Expo will associate with the Indian Institute of Welding (IIW India) to exhibit innovations in welding and cutting. MOLDEX India and FASTNEX will focus on molding, fasteners, and fixing technologies.

Additionally, the 6th International Congress 2024 on welding technology will be organized by IIW-India from January 22 – 24, 2024 at BIEC. The International Congress would offer a platform to young professionals in the field of welding through an exclusive Young Professional International Conference (YPIC). Around 500 delegates are expected to participate in the International Congress.

On a grander scale

India’s Manufacturing sector is thriving and factors such as pent-up demand, export incentives, Production-Linked Incentive (PLI) schemes, resilient foreign direct investment (FDI) inflows, ease of doing business, and several other incentives are contributing to its progress. This growth will continue to lead to the demand for more manufacturing technologies and will be reflected at this grand metal forming exhibition.

IMTEX FORMING was last held in June 2022, featuring 350 exhibitors from 19 countries. The exhibition attracted 25,656 visitors from 45 countries including trade delegations and institutional buyers. Trade delegations from 250 companies from across various industry sectors visited the show. Business orders worth around `500 crore and enquiries worth around `4,600 crore were generated, as reported on the last day of the show.

For the first time ever, Messe Stuttgart India-organized MOLDEX India and FASTNEX will be held as co-located shows at IMTEX FORMING 2024.
