This year, from April 11 to 15, more than 600 exhibitors will be displaying their products and expertise at the NEC in Birmingham. MACH 2016 is the UK’s largest and best established manufacturing technologies exhibition and this year it looks set to be bigger and better than ever. It showcases live working technology and cutting edge innovations from across the UK and beyond.
Who’s taking part?
MACH exhibitors hail from all areas of manufacturing: there will be representatives from aerospace, automotive, oil and gas, power generation, medical, rail and even space. The technologies on display are just as varied: tooling, turning, milling, metrology and additive manufacturing will all be visible. Technologies as varied in size and scope as aeroplane manufacture and precision CNC machining in Sussex and elsewhere will be on display. There are well over 200 companies taking part in MACH 2016.
There will also be a programme of seminars and presentations from some of the best known names in manufacturing. There are more details to be found about the event here. Firms such as Airbus, Maclaren and Messier-Dowty will be sharing their expertise, and academic institutions such as Cranfield University will also be contributing.

In addition to the seminars, there will be valuable networking opportunities as so many manufacturing firms, of all sizes, will be present.
What’s special about MACH 2016?
Visitors to MACH 2016 will get an insider’s view as to what’s coming next to the manufacturing industry. This year, the focus is very much on additive technologies such as 3D printing, metal based additive manufacturing and the interconnectedness of machines. These things will have a huge impact on the manufacturing industry in the coming months and years. If you are interested in how the latest developments in using technology to make precision, custom components can benefit your business you can contact specialist firms such as CNC Machining Sussex through http://www.sussexprecision.co.uk/.
MACH is far more than a local or a national show – there’s a strong international element to visitors and exhibitors alike. International delegations from China and Russia have confirmed that they will be attending. The NEC is advantageously positioned close to Birmingham International Airport, making it the perfect venue for an event of this scale.
