Micro | Nano | Mems 2013 – the definitive showcase for micro, precision, mems and nano manufacturing technologies – will take place on the 25th and 26th September 2013 at the NEC, Birmingham.

Now in its sixth year, the event will feature a wide range of exhibitors covering micro, precision, mems and nano manufacturing solutions including: precision diamond machining; micro milling; grinding machines; micro injection moulding; laser micro machining; photo etching; metrology and test equipment; micro-fluidics fabrication and assembly and testing equipment.

Exhibitors include Accumold, Alicona UK, Etch Tech, Laser Micromachining, Laser Lines, Lasea SA, iX-Factory, CDA, Keyence, TDC Corporation, and Beckett MIM.

Not only will this year’s event featuring live machine demonstrations, but there will be an extensive conference and seminar programme, which will explore the impact, developments and applications in a range of micro manufacturing technologies. Confirmed speakers include Professor Yi Qin of Strathclyde University who will discuss micro-forming technology; Dr Russell Torah of the University of Southampton who will speak about micro fabrication production technology for mems on new, emerging smart textiles; and Nadeem Rizvi from Laser Micromachining, who plans to share his expertise on the practicalities of micromachining with lasers.

The 2013 event will be co-located with Sensors & Instrumentation 2013 and The Machine Building Show 2013; with TCT Live and Mediplas taking place at the same time.

Kathy Ambrose, publishing director at Datateam Business Media, commented: “This is a hugely exciting event for the micro manufacturing sector. With the continuing trend in several fields for the miniaturisation of components, micro and nano manufacturing technologies are providing a competitive edge in manufacturing. Offering not only a wealth of knowledgeable exhibitors, but an unrivalled, focused conference and seminar programme, Micro | Nano | Mems 2013 offers a genuine one-stop-shop for all micro, nano and ultra-precision manufacturing solutions.”

Pre-registration will be available for free online from early June.
