Northern Manufacturing & Electronics, the free-to-attend industrial technology and electronics show, returns to EventCity, Manchester on September 28th and 29th 2016. With over 250 firms expected to take part, Northern Manufacturing & Electronics 2016 promises to provide electronics professionals from across the North with the opportunity for a busy couple of days.
Northern Manufacturing & Electronics is the leading forum for the electronics, electrical components and manufacturing industries in the North. Components are high on the shopping list for many visitors, with more than 40% of visitors last year identifying them as a leading motive for their visit. And that’s no surprise: with the diversity of products and solutions on show, buyers, design engineers and specifiers can eliminate numerous sourcing problems in a single visit.
The show offers the combination of a broad cross-section of the UK Electronics business and a large number of related products and services from general industry, such as sheet metal, consumables and production equipment, all under one roof. Exhibitors taking part range from major global manufacturers to regional specialists. Well known names from the world of electronics include JJS Manufacturing, LCL Electronics, Easby Electronics, Lemo UK, Datalink, European Circuits, Variohm Eurosensor and PACE Europe.
Robotics & automation, sensors, enclosures, test equipment, optical inspection, hand tools, storage and countless others will all be on display. Technology trails lead visitors around the show, allowing them to make the most efficient use of time at the show. Subcontract services showcased include 3D design, electronic assembly, sub-contract manufacturing, tool making and production equipment. The show also highlights numerous big-name machinery manufacturers such as Amada, Bystronic and Haas Automation giving live demonstrations throughout the two-day event.
In the wider business context, many other firms will be addressing issues such as asset finance, outsourcing, training and health & safety. There are specialists in sectors such as barcode solutions, waste management, electronic design and manufacturing software. Subcontract services ranging from CEMS and PCB manufacture, to fabrication, precision engineering and specialist coatings are also present, along with an impressive array of companies supplying production support in the shape of industrial cleaning, consumables, machine services, stock control products, software and even industrial lighting.
The free seminar programme is another popular attraction. A lively two-day programme fields a variety of expert presenters speaking on an equally wide range of technical and operational topics. The hour-long sessions run over both days of the show, and, as with the show itself, are free to enter. The seminar programme at Northern 2016 offers an outstanding opportunity to listen to world-class presenters discuss the most recent ideas in manufacturing, engineering and industrial management.
