More than 700 leading international suppliers have booked stands for Advanced Engineering UK, which opens its doors on 4th – 5th November 2015 at the Birmingham NEC, UK.

These exhibitors are using the UK’s largest annual trade show and open conference for the high performance engineering sectors to launch new products and services to the wider engineering market. Show organisers, Easyfairs, highlight the following:

Royal Tool Control will be launching its new Tool Master ‘BASIC’ presetter live on the Advanced Engineering UK show floor. The previously unseen product, which is based on its Tool Master Quadra presetter, offers a cost effective entry level tool presetter, benefitting from EyeRay Hawk image processing software and an “all-In One PC with 15.6” touch screen monitor, for fast and easy operation.

Alicona is using the show to present its optical metrology robot measuring system to the UK market for the first time. This 3D measurement sensor can be successfully implemented into an array of different industries, providing users with a flexible measurement solution for quality assurance applications. It saves time during the manufacturing process and allows quality assurance to be included, whilst providing users with real-time information.

Perceptron will be exhibiting its new ScanR. It is the world’s first green laser, for use with portable and fixed coordinate measuring machines. It brings with it an enhanced dynamic range, improved material coverage, increased accuracy and a superior edge detection. 

Sia Abrasives will be showcasing its new high performance ‘Sianet’ range of flexible abrasives. On display will be the 7900 and 7500 CER series, which delivers a very high performance stock removal, with a long lifetime. The design incorporates a net backing, which ensures a virtually dust free sanding environment, and allows it to adapt to all shapes and contours. The ‘Sianet’ ranges are most suited for use on all types of woods, composite materials, primers, body fillers, keying lacquers and plasterboard applications.

ETPS will be presenting its new super capacitor emulation GUI. It allows the power supply to accurately emulate the electrical characteristics of a real super capacitor stack. It reduces preparation time, eliminates operator error and result variations, plus it minimises external variables.

Trotec will be displaying its Speedy 360, the newest addition to its Speedy line of laser engravers. It has been designed to improve accessibility with a fully flexible front cover, ensuring optimum productivity.

Nordson EFD is introducing its xQR41 Series MicroDot needle valve. This new valve features a 60% smaller form factor in comparison to standard valves, an exchangeable modular design and a unique quick release clasp

Advanced Engineering UK 2015 integrates multiple show exhibit zones with the UK’s largest free-to-attend engineering conference programme. The show spans key sectors including aerospace, automotive, motorsport, marine, civil engineering, and more. It also includes over 700 exhibitors and more than 175 speakers, delivering sessions from 6 purpose built auditoriums at the show. Advanced Engineering UK features four ‘shows within a show’ – Automotive Engineering Show, Aero Engineering Show, Composites Engineering Show and Performance Metals Engineering.
