Sensors & Instrumentation opens tomorrow

Sensors & Instrumentation 2013 opens tomorrow (25th September)! This two-day event, which is co-located with Micro|Nano|Mems and the brand new Machine Building show, is going to be ‘the place to be’ for all those looking for the latest products and technologies for sensor, test, measurement and control.

Visitors to the event, which takes place at the NEC in Birmingham, can expect to see the latest in instrumentation solutions. In fact products this year will range from calibration and condition monitoring solutions to control systems, data acquisition, displays, flow and level technology, gas detection equipment, thermal imagers, plus much more.

There are a wide variety of exhibitors attending the show this year, including National Instruments, Bronkhorst, Michell Instruments, Micro-Epsilon, FUTEK Advanced Sensor Technology, Kistler and Binder, to name just a few. These companies will not only be showing examples from their product ranges, but will introducing new products to the UK market for the first time, be holding demonstrations, and have experienced staff members on hand to discuss application queries and answer technical questions with those visiting.

Bronkhorst, meanwhile, will be featuring a Learning Zone where equipment will be available for a hands-on approach to various measurement techniques, software tools and tricks of the trade for PID control, valve/pump steering and thermal mass flow in-situ calibration checking.

Alongside the exhibition, there will also be a dedicated seminar and conference programme. Sessions will cover such topics as ‘Measuring & monitoring remotely’, ‘The Benefits of piezoelectric sensor technology’ and ‘Advances in infrared measurement for thermal product analysis’.

At the end of last year’s show, Sam Drury from Impress Sensors & Systems, said: “There was a great ‘buzz’ over the two days and I am sure 2013 will be even better, and hopefully make this the generic ‘sensor and instrumentation’ show in the UK!”

Co-located events

Micro|Nano|Mems is described by the organisers as the showcase for micro, precision, mems and nano manufacturing technologies. This will feature live machine demonstrations plus a host of exhibitors covering the full spectrum of micro, precision, mems and nano manufacturing solutions, including precision diamond machining; micro milling; grinding machines; micro injection moulding; laser micro machining; photo etching; metrology and test equipment; micro-fluidics fabrication and assembly; and testing equipment.

The Machine Building show will be two days of product displays and live demonstrations, with product areas including: Motors and drives; Power transmission technologies; PLCs, HMIs and displays; Hydraulics & pneumatics; Mechanical components; Panel building, switchgear and electrical equipment; etc.

During the Machine Building show, GAMBICA, the association for instrumentation, control, automation and laboratory technology, will be presenting two seminars. The first seminar ‘Energy Efficiency – Investing in the machine to reduce the running cost’ will address the benefit of investing in energy efficient systems to reduce energy costs. The second has the title ‘Electric Motors – how control and automation is the key to energy saving’, and will build on the financial focus of the previous seminar.
