What’s go­ing on in En­gi­neer­ing and Man­u­fac­tur­ing? EMEX 2018 has the answers!

DEMM Engineering & Manufacturing - - NEWS -

EMEX 2018 is not only gear­ing up to be the largest event in its al­most 40 year his­tory, show­cas­ing the lat­est tech­nolo­gies and prod­ucts, it will also tackle the most press­ing is­sues in­dus­try is fac­ing.

How do NZ com­pa­nies ad­dress the grow­ing lack of skilled labour and suc­ces­sion prob­lems? What are we do­ing in ar­eas as work safety and what prac­ti­cal steps are we mak­ing to im­prove our not so great record? What does all this talk about In­dus­try 4.0 ac­tu­ally mean for you? In­no­va­tion is a fancy and very pop­u­lar word but what qual­i­fies as an in­no­va­tive prod­uct? Who can help your busi­ness to be­come more in­no­va­tive?

Talk to the ex­perts and visit the In­no­va­tion Quar­ter in the newly added Hall 1, where ad­vi­sors from Cal­laghan In­no­va­tion are happy to dis­cuss op­por­tu­ni­ties on how to tap into the Govern­ment R & D funds. Cal­iber De­sign and Lo­cus Re­search will show­case some amaz­ing in­no­va­tive prod­ucts, all de­signed and man­u­fac­tured in close col­lab­o­ra­tion with New Zealand Man­u­fac­tur­ers. The In­no­va­tion Quar­ter will show­case a myr­iad of amaz­ing tech­nol­ogy that is revolutionising the in­dus­try.

EMEX 2018 is also proud to host the Em­ploy­ment & Train­ing Hub where you can dis­cuss your needs with the ‘Man­u­fac­tur­ers Net­work’ and the Main­te­nance En­gi­neers So­ci­ety of New Zealand, who both are en­thu­si­as­tic sup­port­ers of Com­pe­tenz and M.I.T. who will run ‘speed meets’, where em­ploy­ers are cou­pled to young up­com­ing tal­ent, aim­ing for a ca­reer in En­gi­neer­ing and/or Man­u­fac­tur­ing. In­vest­ing in train­ing staff through a com­bined work­ing and learn­ing pro­gramme, has proven to be highly suc­cess­ful.

Amongst all the CNC ma­chine tool com­pa­nies in Halls 3 & 4, Kiwi-made plasma cutting sys­tems from Plaz­max, a proud New Zealand com­pany push­ing the bound­aries with their de­sign and man­u­fac­ture of ma­chines, will be a high­light. Go and see the fre­quent demon­stra­tions of their cutting- edge equip­ment!

If you’re in­ter­ested in pro­mot­ing your prod­ucts to the mar­ket place and join as an ex­hibitor, now would be the time to come on board! It pro­vides you with enough time to pre­pare and be ready for the es­ti­mated 5,000+ in­dus­try pro­fes­sion­als vis­it­ing EMEX 2018.

EMEX 2018 is to be held at the ASB Show­grounds in Auck­land from May 1-3, 2018.
