Live demos from Yamazaki Mazak, XYZ Machine Tools and new products from Dugard
Visitors to the Advanced Manufacturing Show will be able to meet an impressive line-up of exhibitors offering the world-class technology that UK manufacturers need to stay ahead of the game in global markets. The exhibition takes place in just one weeks’ time, from 4 to 6 June at the NEC, Birmingham.
The Show promises a wealth of new product launches and live demonstrations from across the spectrum of machining, metalforming, tooling, metrology, production software and ancillary equipment.
One of the new machines to make its debut at the Show will be Dugard’s new 5-axis simultaneous machining centre, which has a standard B-axis swivel head as well as an integrated C-axis rotary table. It will also highlight new 42mm and 52mm additions to its CNC production lathe family – which now includes twin-turret, twin-spindle options.
Nick Gunning, UK Sales Director, said: 'As a leading UK supplier of machine tools, Dugard couldn’t miss the chance to exhibit at the very first Advanced Manufacturing Show. It’s an ideal opportunity to showcase the comprehensive selection available at Dugard.'
TRUMPF too sees the Show as an ideal opportunity to show what its technology can do.
'The latest production technology can give UK manufacturers a real competitive edge and TRUMPF has a lot to offer in this regard,' said Antony Tearle, Tooling and Stores Manager at TRUMPF. 'That’s why we are exhibiting at the Advanced Manufacturing Show. It’s the best platform for us to showcase our tooling concepts and wide range of options. We’ll have several new products too, including the TRUMPF Euro tooling range that allows our tools to be used on any brand of machine and also a brand-new concept in portable fabrication, our 3-in-1 profile nibbler.'
In the field of metrology, Aberlink will have several advanced new products making their UK debuts at the Show. It is expecting a great deal of interest in the launch of its new larger range of CMMs. These offer 1.2m of travel in the X axis, 1.0m in the Z axis and up to 3m in the Y axis. These machines have been designed to be compatible with the use of Renishaw’s REVO probe head.
Also making its first UK exhibition appearance will be the V4 version of Aberlink’s popular 3D software. Used across the entire Aberlink range and by many other global metrology companies, the user-friendly software has recently undergone its most significant development phase. Featuring a dynamic user interface, faster program execution and unlimited feature measurement, Aberlink 3D V4 supports both PH20 probe and SP25M scanning.
Aberlink’s Business Development Manager, Chris Davies, said: 'The exhibition’s visitors and the profile of our co-exhibitors represents the kind of customers our products are ideally suited to. Also, the NEC’s central location and excellent transport links enable potential Aberlink customers to travel from all parts of the UK.'
Other new product launches at the Advanced Manufacturing Show include the latest version of Delcam’s FeatureCAM software, which allows users to increase productivity, improve surface finish and reduce surface wear. Tooling developments launching at the Show include GND tooling with high-rigidity holders from Sumitomo, the latest solid carbide high-performance Ti-HPC cutters for titanium machining from WNT, and ITC’s UK-manufactured range of PCD and diamond-coated cutting tools for the composite industry.
Machines cutting metal live at the Show include Matsuura’s 5-axis MX-520, Yamazaki Mazak’s innovative ‘made-in-one’ multitasking INTEGREX machine and CNC machines from XYZ, including a 3-axis bedmill and vertical machining centre, a large-capacity electronic gap-bed lathe and a compact CNC turning centre.
The new Advanced Manufacturing Show runs alongside Subcon – the UK’s only national cross-sector contract and subcontract manufacturing exhibition – and The Engineer Conference, showcasing some of the most compelling and inspiring examples of manufacturing technology.
Grant Burgham, Business Development and Portfolio Director at Centaur Exhibitions, said: 'The impressive calibre and range of companies that will be exhibiting at the Advanced Manufacturing Show clearly shows the strength of the UK market and the demand for world-class technology. UK manufacturers are ready to take on global markets and companies exhibiting at the Show can give them the tools to do it.'
The new Show has got off to a great start, with many visitors from leading OEMs already pre-registered.
