Three key engineering industry events come together from 2 to 4 June 2015, when the Advanced Manufacturing Show returns to the NEC, Birmingham, UK alongside Subcon, the UK’s only dedicated show for subcontract manufacturing, and a new event focused on design and product development, The Engineer Design & Innovation Show.
The exhibition’s organisers state leading brands in engineering come together to create a unique event that will deliver the manufacturing industry an unrivalled opportunity to network and do business.
The organisers claim the three shows will feature over 500 exhibitors and provide a focal point for engineering-based manufacturing in the UK across all sectors and disciplines.
According to the co-ordinators the Subcon show gives OEMs and higher tier suppliers access to top-quality subcontractors, the Advanced Manufacturing Show focuses on the tools and advanced manufacturing technology that OEMs and their suppliers need to make these products in-house, and The Engineer Design & Innovation show focuses on the tools and components design engineers need to bring new products to market
After its successful launch in 2013, the show will focus on all aspects of production engineering technology. The event features dedicated zones for Machine Tools, Cutting Tools, Measurement, Machine Tool Accessories and Lasers. Exhibitors already confirmed include Renishaw, Delcam, Aberlink and Laser Lines.
The organisers explain Subcon exhibitors cover machining, moulding, fabrication, electronics assembly, casting and forging, finishing and treatments. The 2015 event will include a new Castings and Forgings Zone, an International Suppliers Zone and a dedicated zone featuring members of the British Turned Parts Manufacturers Association (BTMA).
The final, key, piece in the jigsaw is The Engineer Design & Innovation Show. This new event will focus on everything an engineering designer needs to do their job: from high-end products and services used to realize their concepts – such as new design software and 3D printing – to the components, materials and innovative technologies that go into these next-generation products.
The show features dedicated zones for Software, 3D Printing and Additive Manufacturing, Materials & Composites and Electronics.
Grant Burgham, Business Development and Portfolio Director at Centaur Exhibitions, said: “Together the three shows will provide a focused and all-encompassing event for engineers looking for the design tools, components and the means to manufacture their products – whether in-house or using an outside supplier.”
