Registration is now open for Sensors & Instrumentation Live. Your free ticket not only gets you access to the UK’s only national instrumentation exhibition but also access to the TCT Show.
There are many reasons to visit the exhibition when it returns to the NEC, Birmingham on 25 and 26 September 2019, with new feature areas added to celebrate the 10th anniversary of the show. The latest feature area to be announced is Innovation in Action, sponsored by PCB Piezotronics. There is a lot to see at the event with market leading companies from across the test, measurement and control sector coming together under one roof. This feature area allows exhibitors to give demonstrations of some of the top technology they have on display. Free-to-attend, Innovation in Action will give you a better insight into the products that are on show and how these products can benefit your own operations. Unlike Google and any other online way of sourcing new products and solutions, this gives you a chance to see how these products work in real life and to have your questions answered by the experts.
Companies already confirmed to speak in Innovation in Action include PCB Piezotronics and Bronkhorst. PCB Piezotronics is a designer, manufacturer, and global supplier of accelerometers, microphones, force, torque, load, strain, and pressure sensors, as well as the pioneer of ICP technology. This instrumentation is used by design engineers and predictive maintenance professionals worldwide for test, measurement, monitoring, and control requirements in automotive, aerospace, industrial, R&D, military, educational, commercial, OEM applications, and more. You can see a live demonstration of PCB products in Innovation in Action.
Bronkhorst is a leader in mass flow meter / mass flow controller technology for gases and liquids, pressure controllers and evaporation systems. Bronkhorst’s Damian Walker will be giving a demonstration of the company’s LDM (Liquid Dosing Module) in Innovation in Action. The LDM is a modular assembly of a Bronkhorst mini CORI-FLOW mass flow meter and a pump system, built together in a robust enclosure as a complete unit with integrated power supply and touch-screen interface. It is capable of very low flow continuous or batch dosing.
The popular Innovation Showcase, sponsored by Bronkhorst, makes a return to Sensors & Instrumentation Live for 2019. This exciting feature area provides an assembly of the most cutting-edge products and solutions available from exhibitors. Visitors can get hands-on with devices and make sure they do not miss rt on a single thing.
Another new feature for 2019 is the Enterprise Hub. The Enterprise Hub will explore the different opportunities that are available to manufacturers. Representatives from key engineering institutions and organisations will give a series of invaluable presentations, giving visitors an insight into topics including funding, training, apprenticeships and standards. Organisations that have already signed up to be at the event include the British Measurement & Test Association (BMTA), the Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA), the Institute of Engineering & Technology (IET), Make UK and GAMBICA.
Britain is one of the world’s biggest manufacturing nations. Almost three million people work in manufacturing and deliver almost half of all UK exports. Manufacturing companies drive over 60 per cent of all UK research and development. As a result of that investment, manufacturing as we know it is changing, adapting, and transforming each and every day.
Make UK are at the cutting edge of innovation; leading the way in developing skills and driving competitive advantage for the UK. The organisation stimulates success for manufacturing businesses, helping them to meet their objectives and goals. Make UK is focused on creating the most supportive environment for UK manufacturers to thrive, innovate and compete. It does this so that it can build a platform for the evolution of UK manufacturing. The organisation enables manufacturers to connect, share, solve problems and create opportunities together. It does this through regional and national meetings, groups, events, advisory boards and through its online networks/communities. Make UK works at every level to ensure UK Manufacturing performs and grows, now and in the future. You can find out more about how Make UK can help your business in the Enterprise Hub at Sensors & Instrumentation Live.
The Institution of Engineering & Technology (The IET)
The Institution of Engineering & Technology (The IET) inspires, informs and influences the global engineering community to engineer a better world. The institution is a diverse home for engineering and technology intelligence throughout the world. This breadth and depth means the IET is uniquely placed to help the sector progress society. The institution wants to build the profile of engineering and technology to change outdated perceptions and tackle the skills gap. This includes encouraging more women to become engineers and growing the number of engineering apprentices. The IET’s accreditation and awards manager and technical training advisor will be at the Enterprise Hub to help visitors learn more about the institution and the opportunities it delivers.
GAMBICA is the Trade Association for Instrumentation, Control, Automation and Laboratory Technology in the UK. The organisation’s insight and influence helps its members to be more competitive by increasing their knowledge and impact. Together it removes barriers and maximise the market potential in our industry. GAMBICA will be discussing apprenticeships at the University of Huddersfield at Sensors & Instrumentation Live.
The British Measurement & Testing Association (BMTA)
The British Measurement & Testing Association (BMTA) represents the interests of the measurement and testing industry in the UK and in Europe.
BMTA encourages is members to have their views known in the standards making process, both nationally and internationally, through the association and individual membership of relevant committees. BMTA works to increase awareness of the measurement and testing industry, and provides training, through seminars and workshops, on topical subjects. BMTA has supported Sensors & Instrumentation Live over the years so it excellent to see them return to speak in the Enterprise Hub.
The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA)
The Defence and Security Accelerator (DASA) finds and funds exploitable innovation to support UK defence and security quickly and effectively, and support UK prosperity. Its vision is for the UK to maintain its strategic advantage over its adversaries through the most innovative defence and security capabilities in the world. DASA were represented at Sensors & Instrumentation live in 2018 and are making a return to the Enterprise Hub this year to talk about the funding opportunities that they have available.
Engineering Symposium – Sensing Innovation
The Engineering Symposium is an exciting partnership between DJB Instruments and Sensors & Instrumentation Live that will present CPD-accredited training that is driven by sensor innovation and the very latest in engineering. DJB will bring together a team of speakers from some of the UK’s leading technology and engineering companies to present a two day programme of technical training sessions. Subjects covered in the Engineering Symposium will include: basics of signal processing; analysis and control of noise sources in data; accelerometer technology and other topics. In addition, industry based presentations will describe how innovative sensor technology has been applied in some of the most technologically challenging applications of the modern era.
Registration for Sensors & Instrumentation Live 2019 is free and will get you access to these great feature areas. To register for the event or to find out more information about the exhibition, please visit https://www.sensorsandinstrumentationlive.co.uk.
