This year's iteration of the semiannual International Manufacturing Technology Show is gearing up to be one of the largest on record.

From September 8-13, over 100,000 people from a dozen or so countries will cram into Chicago's McCormick Place to check out the industrial wares, tools and services of nearly 2,000 exhibitors.
