SouthMACH is the ma­chin­ery of busi­ness

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - PRODUCT WATCH -

The South’s pre­mier tech trade show has been rein­vig­o­rated for 2015. New owner XPO Ex­hi­bi­tions says the com­pany has worked hard to en­sure that vis­i­tors and ex­hibitors alike get great busi­ness value from the time they in­vest.

The event is close to sold out, says XPO. “There aren’t many spa­ces left. If you want to get your prod­ucts and ser­vices in front of thou­sands of peo­ple keen to find the best and lat­est, then you need to act now and give XPO a call,” ad­vises Aad van der Poel, sales manager for the event.

How­ever, there is still plenty of time for vis­i­tors to sign up, which is rec­om­mended be­cause there is no gate fee to visit for those who pre-reg­is­ter for the trade-only event.

Vis­i­tors’ time will be well-in­vested, says van der Poel, with the chance to en­gage with ex­hibitors both lo­cal and in­ter­na­tional. “If you are an en­gi­neer – me­chan­i­cal, de­sign, con­sul­tant, elec­tri­cal, ma­chin­ist, com­mu­ni­ca­tions tech­ni­cian/manager, su­per­vi­sor, tech­ni­cal op­er­a­tor, op­er­a­tions manager or sim­i­lar, then SouthMACH of­fers the tools, tech­nol­ogy and ser­vices to work smarter.

“With one visit to this show you can see all the big names from your in­dus­try and can re­ally weigh up the benefits of each be­fore you make the big de­ci­sion. You can then be sure you are get­ting the very best. This bi­en­nial event gives you the op­por­tu­nity to come face-to-face with the ex­perts be­hind the key in­no­va­tions en­ter­ing the New Zealand mar­ket.”

Leussink En­gi­neer­ing has been ex­hibit­ing at SouthMACH for many years and finds vis­i­tors want to learn new tech­nolo­gies and wit­ness state of the art equip­ment that could give their com­pany the com­pet­i­tive ad­van­tage. Spokesman Rus­sell Brinkworth says Leussink has been man­u­fac­tur­ing Dem­meler jig­ging and fab­ri­ca­tion sys­tems for over 30 years. “Peo­ple vis­it­ing our stand can get hand­son and re­ceive pro­fes­sional demon­stra­tions out­lin­ing how Dem­meler can im­prove pro­duc­tiv­ity and pro­vide qual­ity com­po­nents whilst re­duc­ing over­all tool­ing costs. They will be able to dis­cuss their com­pany’s re­quire­ments with pro­pos­als in­stantly for­mu­lated to their needs and any or­ders placed at SouthMACH will re­ceive spe­cial pric­ing.”

An­other ex­hibitor is kanDO In­no­va­tion Ltd and its TV star robot Bax­ter, an in­ter­ac­tive pro­duc­tion robot that has been de­signed to work safely with hu­man work­ers, yet be f lex­i­ble enough to also adapt to a changes in pro­duc­tion. With a face dis­play­ing its feel­ings – for­tu­nately never anger – Bax­ter is well worth a look at SouthMACH – Horncastle Arena, Christchurch, 22–23 July 2015.
