Northern Manufacturing & Electronics 2017

Louise Smyth

Northern Manufacturing & Electronics, the North’s biggest annual engineering technology and electronics show, returns to EventCity, Manchester, UK, on September 27th and 28th.

Over its five year history, Northern’s exhibitor list has developed into a blend of major global brands and local engineering firms, highly attuned to the particular needs of the region’s burgeoning manufacturing sector.

A total of 8.8% of total UK exports originate from the North West, and manufacturing makes the largest contribution to the region’s economic output of any in the UK.

The show’s central Manchester location puts it at the centre of this highly industrious region, providing the perfect showcase for both the latest industrial hardware and the considerable range of engineering expertise the North has to offer.

Visitors will see a wide range of advanced manufacturing technologies from firms such as Haas Automation, Yamazaki Mazak, Bystronic, Laser Lines, TriTech 3D, Leader CNC, Orbital Technologies and Amada; tooling and production hardware from YMT, Nikon Metrology, Faro Technology, PACE Europe and others; OEM parts and components from Lemo, Fischer Connectors, igus UK, Flow Technology and Micronel; electronics production from Electrica, LCL Electronics, European Circuits and many more leading vendors.

There’s precision engineering and fabrication from leading firms such as Jenks & Cattell, Orbital Fabrications and Mintdale amongst others.

There is free technical seminar programme too, addressing a wide variety of practical topics.

Running over both days of the event, the programme gives visitors the opportunity to learn about the latest ideas in manufacturing from acknowledged experts in their respective fields. The topics under review this year include a detailed look at implementing

Lean, best practice in world-class manufacturing, CE Marking and the rise of new technologies such as 3D print and the Internet of Things. One session not to miss is an overview of the forthcoming General Data Protection Regulations, which all businesses need to be familiar with ahead of its introduction in May 2018.

A detailed list of the sessions is available HERE.
