Celebrating the best in UK manufacturing and engineering excellence and innovation

Manufacturing and Engineering Week brings together a series of events showcasing end-to-end manufacturing and engineering solutions, to encourage conversation, business, knowledge sharing and action.

The UK remains a global force for engineering and manufacturing; driving innovation, leading on the industrial agenda, the green economy, industry 4.0 and being at the forefront of the response to the global pandemic, however in a post-Covid and post-Brexit world, Britain’s standing, and its future, will require engineering and manufacturing to grow and strengthen.  

Manufacturing and Engineering Week (M&E Week) covers the entire product lifecycle from design, engineering, manufacturing and maintenance and seeks to celebrate the sector sharing successes and future insight, raising critical discussion and is a destination for professionals to source products and services in order to keep them competitive.

The week will feature digital sessions on Tuesday (7 June 2022), followed by live events on Wednesday & Thursday (8-9 June 2022) with a round up and key takeaways to finish the week on Friday (10 June 2022)

Southern Manufacturing 2022 – maintaining efficiency more important than ever

Southern Manufacturing & Electronics makes its long-awaited return to Farnborough from February 8th to 10th 2022.

With many of its regular exhibitors returning for 2022, the exhibition will once again field a remarkably extensive exhibitor list covering the complete range of engineering activities, from high-tech machine tools and automation to components and subcontract services. Vendors from throughout the UK are presenting, as well as a considerable number of off-shore participants from across Europe, Asia and the Far East.

The 20,000m² Farnborough International Exhibition Centre is virtually sold out, making the show an incredible opportunity to source components, workshop equipment, tools and pretty much everything else under one roof. With the difficulties of travel at the present time, such an opportunity is not to be missed. A few of the familiar names finding their way back for 2022 include Brady, Faro, Guhring, Mitutoyo (UK), Boxford, Loctite-Henkel, Nikon Metrology and numerous others. Engineering service providers include Fife Fabrications, FB Avak, Perfect Bore, Rose Plastic, Jenks & Cattell Engineering, Havant Sheet Metal, Southern Springs & Pressings, MJ Allen together with a good many others.

Cost reduction and energy efficiency has taken on a new urgency as firms struggle to reduce overheads in these challenging times. Many of Southern’s exhibitors this year are focussed on squeezing maximum efficiency from existing resources. One such firm is InTouch Monitoring, that will showcase its Intouch i4 Cloud monitoring, scheduling, reporting and analytics system, designed to improve throughput and reduce energy consumption in a manufacturing environment. Available on monthly subscription, the system ensures all machines are fully utilised and the increased efficiency that results often obviates the need to buy new machines, claims the company. The system connects to any ERP and can improve overall equipment efficiency and throughput, decrease downtime, increase profit and reduce energy consumption.

Hardcoating Technologies provides premium coating solutions for machining, wear, and decorative applications. The firm says that its PVD coatings greatly extend the life of any tool that it is deposited on due to its far higher hardness and wear resistance. HTL has recently started a re-grind and recoat service for tools such as drills, endmills and reamers. Re-grinding is a cost-effective alternative to replacement, with benefits further enhanced further with the addition of a suitable coating.

T Cards Direct highlights the latest release of its visual time management tool, aimed at improving the efficient utilisation of human resources. The new version includes new admin pages, simple to follow setup and a clear editable framework. The management tool allocates tracks and improves efficiency, says the company. The system is adaptable and customisable for workplaces which have their own specific requirements for a planning system to improve business.

The show is also a fantastic place to source components, spares and consumables. Several major distributors from both the UK and continental Europe will be present, between them offering a vast range of components and replacement parts. Electrical and electromechanical vendors include Telegartner UK, Transfer Multisort Elektronic, Wurth Electronics, Ozdisan Elektronik amongst others. Pneumatic components are exhibited by Leybold, Pneumax and Lee Products, and there are springs by Lee Spring and European Springs & Pressings.

AS Controls is the sole UK representative for Spohn & Burkhardt controls, NBB radio remote controls, Sitec safety switches and Koduct Cable Chains in the UK & Ireland. Workplace storage equipment manufacturer, Bott, will showcase a professional storage system, created from products in its cubio range. The range also integrates with the company’s CNC tool storage options, incorporating Lean, 5S and Six Sigma initiatives, promoting efficiency and productivity in the workplace. Tool suppliers at the show include Berger Tools and CKI.

The ever-popular free seminar programme also returns for 2022 in a socially-distanced format. With UK business now operating in a post-covid, post-Brexit world, keeping abreast of the latest legislation and management strategies has never been more important. This year, among the topics discussed, Tim Scurlock of Applied Lean Consulting gives some ideas on how to drive continuous improvement in your business, and Graham Cooper offers practical tips on energy usage reduction in manufacturing.  Sessions run over all three days and a full list is available on the show’s website at www.industrysouth.co.uk

Farnborough International Exhibition Centre is among Europe’s most up-to-date exhibition sites, with extensive infection control measures in place to help ensure as low-risk an environment as possible. There’s free onsite car parking for 3,500 vehicles, as well as a dedicated free bus service between Farnborough’s train stations straight to the show. The venue itself delivers a very good standard of services including a free WiFi service and on-site catering.

Southern Manufacturing & Electronics 2022 opens from February 8th to 10th. Admission to the exhibition is free. More information and tickets are available from www.industrysouth.co.uk

As in previous years, the show features an incredible array of high-tech automation, mechanical and electronics components, tooling, industrial hardware, business and subcontract services from all over the UK, continental Europe and beyond.

Among the big names returning for 2022, Brady will highlight examples from its wide range of automated labelling solutions that include industrial-grade labels, automated label printing software and automated print & apply systems. Solutions on show include the Wraptor A6200 Wrap Printer Applicator, designed to greatly speed-up labelling operations.
