It’s a new year! A time for fresh starts and renewed goals and awesome new cat calendars. Whether your personal resolutions stick for 12 months or 12 days (just me?), AMT – The Association For Manufacturing Technology has the tools and talent to help you identify – and achieve – realistic business objectives. 

AMT is Manufacturing Technology

AMT has one focus: supporting manufacturers. 

Our members make, sell, service, and support cutting-edge manufacturing technology in a global market. Our business is growing manufacturing technology businesses with a dynamic blend of hands-on support, advocacy, and community-building events.

AMT members gain a competitive edge through:


AMT supports the advancement of transformative technologies and data-driven manufacturing. We further the MTConnect standard to advance digital manufacturing, develop original content on transformative technologies, and operate the San Francisco Tech Lab to bridge the gap between the manufacturing technology and investment communities.


We empower better business decisions through economic insights, market data, and industry expertise. Whether it is via a custom answer from our analysts, a business intelligence report, or an economic event, we ensure members have actionable intelligence.


AMT provides professional development opportunities to members, advocates for the development of a skilled manufacturing technology workforce, and addresses the skills gap.


We work with Congress, government agencies, the presidential administration, and others to advocate for policies that promote growth in U.S. manufacturing technology.


AMT helps our members operate successfully in an international marketplace. Through our seven Global Tech Centers, we deliver support ranging from market access to proxy hires. 


Using unique industry events and media channels, AMT brings together leaders in manufacturing technology to build community and foster connections. Our wide array of content vehicles include a magazine, newsletters, and a digital network. We host seven annual events – and the bi-annual, must-attend event, IMTS.
