The Manufacturing & Measurement (M&M) tenth road show is being hosted by GTMA on 13th October 2016 and will be held at the Concord Sports Centre, Sheffield. One of the key focuses of the event will be over 40 of the top UK inspection, metrology and measurement companies, as well as engineering specialists in fixtures, toolmaking, additive manufacturing and associated products and services will be exhibiting.
Demonstrating the very latest technology, these companies are active participants in creating successful engineering solutions for the current and future demands of all industry sectors.
Providing a focal point for the transfer of technology from the science of measurement into the most demanding manufacturing environments, MIM 2016 will deliver an opportunity for attendees to learn more about the very latest measurement and inspection technologies and associatedservices available.
Association Chief Executive, Julia Moore stated: “Knowledge gained here could provide a vital competitive business edge.”
Moore added: “With keynote speakers from industry-leading ‘blue chip’ manufacturing companies, Rolls-Royce, Jaguar Land Rover and Renishaw on Additive Manufacturing, it is a must attend metrology and manufacturing focused event.”
Chairman for the event Roger Digby, Group Technical Director, Exova Group said: “It is no longer acceptable to say you are doing something, you have to prove it. So, measurement and inspection within manufacturing is vital. Without it no technical product could be made to a required standard, and subsequently verified and certified. The growing demand for measurement in manufacturing is driven on three fronts legislation and regulation, improvement in manufacturing processes to reduce environmental impact and increase efficiency, and the introduction of innovative technologies.”
Digby added: “Stringent targets are being applied to existing products and processes, while new materials and manufacturing technologies – such as additive manufacturing – require measurement and control, along with process parameter and end product validation to ensure that parts manufactured using these emerging technologies meet the design intent. Attendees to this event will have access to a whole range of experts in their fields in a non-competitive environment that promotes knowledge transfer and best practice.”
There is little doubt that good measurement systems equate to better business decisions, and M&M 2016 will provide the ideal opportunity for visitors to find out about how metrology can influence the success of their manufacturing and improve their businesses.
