ASM International, ASM Heat Treating Society, and AGMA are co‐locating to bring three events to one location — ASM’s Heat Treat and IMAT events with AGMA’s Motion + Power Technology Expo are ready to provide the forum for the industry to get back to business and meet safely in person.

The top priority remains the health and safety of all those who support the event on‐site. They have protocols in place and are working with the America’s Center Convention Complex, the city of St. Louis, and their vendor partners to provide a safe environment for a successful in‐person event.

There are a lot of questions about attendance, protocols and what to expect. First, the landscape changes daily and they are all doing their best to navigate through the latest information each day. One thing they know, industry is ready to get back to business and connect in‐person.


– COVID‐19 will impact attendance: Heat Treat, IMAT, and the MPT Expo are focused, quality attendee events.

– Heat Treat, IMAT, and MPT exhibitors will connect with customers and colleagues they have not seen in over a year, and meet new ones, as the show is one of the first industrial events being held in the United States after the pandemic.

– It only takes one connection or order to get ROI.

– The shows are committed to meeting safely, to network, conduct business and make those personal connections in a face-to‐face environment.

– Industry leaders are committing to live presentations and Q&A during the Heat Treat, IMAT, and MPT expos, a critical value or the technical communities.

ASM and AGMA are committed to holding their conferences trade shows this September and will not be cancelling the events. The members want a platform to conduct business face‐to‐face and it is their job to support that with their conferences and trade shows this September. They have been “all in” from the beginning and continue to be.

ASM and AGMA are committed to transparency.

– Industry events are tracking between 50‐60% of their typical attendance, according to the Center for Exhibition Industry Research (CEIR).

– There will be minimal international participation due to travel restrictions.

– Exhibitors have reduced attendance in order to properly scale their participation.

– There currently is a mask mandate for the city of St. Louis. ASM and AGMA are committed to following all city, state, and federal requirements to make sure they provide a safe environment for their shows. They will keep their exhibitors and attendees updated on these safety measures.

With PILZ’s “Identification and Access Management” portfolio, they offer you a comprehensive range of products, solutions and software for the implementation of safety as well as security tasks. Below you’ll discover more about potential applications, from simple authentication to complex access permissions, and access management through to safe operating mode selection, maintenance safeguarding and safeguarding of data and networks. Experience safety and security in one system!

This solution ensures that a machine cannot resume operation while people are still in the danger zone. The maintenance safeguarding system “key-in-pocket” is designed for machines with danger zones, which are protected by a safety fence and which staff need to access – robot cells for example. In comparison with conventional lockout-tagout (LOTO) systems, maintenance safeguarding with the key-in-pocket solution is implemented via RFID keys with corresponding permissions and a safe list in the PILZ controllers. As a result, it provides a purely electronic restart protection and makes both mechanical interlocking devices and warning tags redundant.
