Following the  success of the previous Emerging Technologies business conferences, the latest event will be at Delcam’s facilities in Birmingham on Wednesday 19th September 2012.

Organised by the GTMA, this will provide an opportunity for visitors to learn about the latest technologies within the whole manufacturing process.

“The presentations for this year’s Emerging Technologies will step visitors through each key stage of the manufacturing process. Starting with software and design, presentations will then cover component considerations, workholding and advanced materials, before focusing on measurement and analysis. By bringing all this leading edge technology together the GTMA is providing an ideal environment for a technology transfer from the scientific and academic arena to the practical industrial landscape, where its practical application can be used to gain a competitive business advantage,” explains the association’s chief executive, Julia Moore.

Mike Smith, chief executive officer of Bromford Industries, will provide the keynote speech: ‘How an SME can be successful at pitching for a multi-million $US contract’.

Presentations will include:

Gary Thompson, C2M (Concept to Manufacture) will present ‘Developing next generation materials from recycled waste using classic tooling techniques’.

Dr Moataz Attallah, a lecturer in advanced materials processing at the School of Metallurgy and Materials, University of Birmingham, will present ‘Resource-efficient high value net-shape manufacturing using powders’.

Managing director of Machine Vision Technology, Brian Castelino, will present ‘Machine Vision in The Production Environment’.

Roemheld managing director, Bill Neal, is presenting ‘Innovation meets Application’, which will cover a number of new products, some of which were launched at the recent MACH 2012 exhibition – including the new E Tecs range of innovative electro-mechanical clamping systems; Rotor Locks for the wind turbine energy market; low pressure clamping for hydraulic fixtures, etc.
