Axminster’s Business Services team will be attending the MACH 2018 exhibition at the NEC, Birmingham in April. The stand will display products from the Jet Elite, CNC Technology and Engineer Series ranges.
“We would like to introduce potential customers to some of the finest manufacturing machines on the market – the superior quality Jet Elite mills, lathes and bandsaws. Plus the team will demonstrate the Axminster CNC Technology iKX3 mill and iKC6 lathe; milling an aluminium component and turning a brass component on the lathe” says General Sales Manager Mark O’Halloran who will be heading up the team at MACH.
MACH organisers describe the event as:
…the outstanding showcase for advances in the manufacturing industry brought to you by the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA), a UK based trade association dealing specifically with engineering based manufacturing
The event is a biennial exhibition bringing together all the latest innovations and developments from the manufacturing technologies sectors.
At the 2016 exhibition both Halls 4 and 5 were completely sold out, attracting more than 25,000 visitors from different sectors across the whole of the UK manufacturing industry and overseas.
Bigger and better
MACH 2016 saw over 600 companies exhibiting, resulting in an incredible £150 million of business attributed to the event. The 2018 show promises to be bigger and better with new zones, innovative technologies and a vibrant seminar programme.
This year the exhibition will occupy Halls 6 and 7 plus Halls 17 to 20. The new Halls will provide one uninterrupted, single space on the same level. And so, with more entrances than before, exhibitors will have the opportunity to be even closer to visitors.
Sir Ben Ainslie to open MACH
Sir Ben Ainslie will officially open the five-day event on Monday 9th April. He is the most successful competitive sailor in Olympic history. Sir Ben won medals at five consecutive Olympics from 1996, including gold at the four Games between 2000 and 2012.
Sir Ben is a true legend, and we are honoured to have him opening the UK’s premier manufacturing and engineering showcase.
Sir Ben has a keen interest in manufacturing and the technology behind it. His British America’s Cup team, Land Rover BAR, utilise the latest manufacturing processes to create their foiling race boat for the America’s Cup.
MTA CEO James Selka, said “We are delighted to welcome Sir Ben to open MACH 2018. We know how much hard work and engineering excellence has been employed in the creation of the Land Rover BAR team. They are a fine example of world-class British engineering and sporting know-how.”
