DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - NEWS -

With SouthMACH just weeks away, in­dus­try sup­pli­ers are now in full plan im­ple­men­ta­tion mode as they work to en­sure a world-class ex­pe­ri­ence for visi­tors. New event or­gan­iser XPO is also in full flight, with Sales Man­ager Aad van der Poel not­ing that the range of ex­hibitors, prod­ucts, ser­vices, busi­ness deals, net­work­ing op­por­tu­ni­ties and sem­i­nars is more than enough to make this the year’s ob­vi­ous must-at­tend.

“More than 100 in­ter­na­tional and lo­cal ex­hibitors will in­form, de­light, en­ter­tain and do great busi­ness deals for the strong at­ten­dance of man­u­fac­tur­ing in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als. If you’re not one of those visi­tors then you’re miss­ing out.”

One of the key fea­tures of the rein­vig­o­rated SouthMACH is the com­pre­hen­sive free seminar pro­gramme. “On both days of the show there are in­for­ma­tive and thought-pro­vok­ing ses­sions cov­er­ing top­ics rang­ing from OH&S to 3D print­ing, all pre­sented by some of the most re­spected ex­perts in their field.”

Pre­sen­ta­tions in­clude: • Ev­ery­one who goes to work comes home healthy and safe • Man­u­fac­tur­ing mat­ters – why and how? • The new breed of col­lab­o­ra­tive ro­bot­ics • Busi­ness ex­cel­lence – AS/NZ/ISO 3834 cer­ti­fi­ca­tion for

welded fab­ri­ca­tion. • Ad­di­tive man­u­fac­tur­ing, not how it works…

what’s be­ing made? • In­no­va­tion is the en­gine that drives all progress. • Pro­tect­ing your in­ven­tion – the new NZ Patents Act. • How to tackle skill short­ages in the Man­u­fac­tur­ing In­dus­try. • Print­ing the fu­ture – me­tal 3D print­ing and high tech

man­u­fac­tur­ing. • Max­imis­ing rev­enue through prod­uct com­pli­ance

and safety. • Health and safety law re­form – du­ties on de­sign­ers,

man­u­fac­tur­ers and im­porters. The full seminar pro­gramme is on the SouthMACH web­site. “There are a vast num­ber of sup­plier dis­plays, deals and demon­stra­tions, plus break-out ar­eas for net­work­ing, con­ver­sa­tion and re­lax­ation, and many other at­trac­tions in­clud­ing the chance to win some great prizes and to see global in­no­va­tions,” says Aad.
