Taking place on 6th and 7th July at Newcastle's Metro Radio Arena, the Manufacturing & Engineering North East exhibition and conference provides an opportunity for industry professionals to meet, talk and discover the latest technologies.
The event comprises keynote conference sessions from industry, leading speakers, case study workshop sessions, and an exhibition of more than 90 machinery, equipment and service providers.
Conference sessions will focus on opportunities for growth in the North East and future manufacturing technology. Hitachi Rail will open the conference by explaining how it developed a four year blueprint for building the fully operational site at Newton Aycliffe. With a resurgence of manufacturing industries in the region, IMechE will examine how that growth is making a difference to the economy regionally and nationally.
Visitors will hear from the founder of Ford Aerospace about how diversification has enabled the company to continue to grow. The Manufacturing Technology Centre will highlight the opportunities and challenges of additive manufacturing, and the AMRC’s head of the Factory 2050 project will be discussing the 4th industrial revolution and what it will mean for UK manufacturers.
