Seminars, drones, robots, a Ford Transit giveaway and more at SouthMACH 2015
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.
“There’s also a fantastic opportunity to win yourself a brand new Ford Transit (T&Cs are at www.southmach.co.nz). All you have to do to be in to win is register as a genuine trade visitor at SouthMACH, visit the Ford Motor Company on stand 81,
