Reporting from the Machine Technologies Associations Show
It’s been such a busy week, it seems like the MACH exhibition was ages ago, but in fact it was only last week.
The Machine Technologies Associations (MTA) show, held over 5 days at the NEC, aimed to showcase the latest advances in the manufacturing industry, and it didn’t fail to disappoint. Alongside those advances as promised in the pre-launch social media activity there were also plenty of new machine launches from manufacturers including Bruderer UK and Mills CNC, who brought no less than seven new machines.
In fact the amount of machinery across the two halls was immense.
A couple of other notable pieces for me included the 3D printed bike showcased by Rennishaw (which managed to get a mention in Prime Ministers Questions) and BLOODHOUND SSC, whom FBCMB are proud to be sponsoring. Then there was the Hardinge GS150 that EngTechGroup gave away as a prize and Romi Machines UK, which managed to deliver a machine to a customer before the show had even finished!
Based on the foot flow of the day I visited, I bet there were more than 20,000 visitors across the 5 days, a credit to the MTA and its main sponsor Lloyds Bank. You can follow MACH on twitter @MACHexhibition or visit the website.
Great show again and roll on MACH 2018!
