UK Micro Precision and Nanomanufacturing Event Set To Become An Industry Leader
(Nanowerk News) Following the highly successful first edition of MM Live 2008, the UK Micro Precision and Nano Manufacturing Event, demand for exhibition space has proven extremely high.
With nine months still to go before the doors open at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, on 20th–21st October 2009, many companies have already reserved exhibition space with other organisations still in the process of choosing a stand for the show. This dedicated support from across the micro industry demonstrates that MM Live is set to become the industry-leading event for manufacturers of micro, precision components.
The 2009 edition has increased its floor space to over 2000 square meters, giving exhibitors the opportunity to operate even more of their machines in live working conditions. Companies who have already confirmed their presence atMM Live 2009 include: Rondol, SwissTec, Rainford Precision Machines, Kern, Tenable, MicroBridge, Sarix, Vision Engineering, Accumold, Laser Micro Machining, Tecan and Steec, to name but a few.
MM Live is a global showcase for all aspects of the mass manufacture of small to micro precision parts, whether a company can make them to order or supply the machinery to mill, cut or mould. Exhibits cover the full spectrum of micro manufacturing techniques from laser cutting, welding, and micro machining to injection moulding, inspection & measurement, photo etching, handling and assembly.
More than 1000 visitors attended the debut UK micro manufacturing show in 2008 demonstrating that this exhibition has provided the industry with a much-needed platform to share its products and knowledge with micro manufacturers. Visitors attended from all over the UK and Europe, even coming from as far a field as Canada, USA, Japan and Israel.
MM Live 2009 is co-located with TCT Live, the UK’s number one product development and manufacturing technology exhibition.
