Rapid News Publications plc announces the launch of a brand new show - MM Live 2008 - exclusively designed for the micro manufacturing industry.
The show - to be held held at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry, 21/22 October 2008 - will provide design engineers and micro manufacturers from all industry sectors with an invaluable source of information to help advance the use of existing and emerging technologies.
Micro manufacturing is the production of small components and products, which have not been possible until the recent introduction of groundbreaking technologies and techniques in traditional manufacturing processes. These innovative techniques enable the manufacture of smaller and smaller components with incredible tolerances and accuracy.
MM Live 2008 will focus on the mass manufacture of ever decreasing sizes of components whilst maintaining quality and precision throughout production. The announcement of this new show has already attracted great interest from companies supplying micro milling, micro injection moulding machines and micro laser cutting solutions.
Mark Blezard, Sales Director of MM Live, commented, "We are delighted with the positive reaction from the industry and are particularly pleased to announce that Deckel Grinders Ltd, the UK sole agent for Kern micro milling machines and Rainford Precision Machines supplier for Union Tool endmills and drills have already committed to being headline sponsors for the show." He continued, "Designers and manufacturers are now able to break through previously impenetrable barriers in terms of size and accuracy parameters. This is a key driver behind innovation for most manufacturing sectors but particularly for automotive, aerospace, electronics and medical. Whilst jewellery and watch makers have long worked on a micro scale, these technologies afford them unprecedented savings in time whilst enabling greater production quantities."
MM Live 2008 will run alongside the industry-leading TCT 2008 Exhibition and Conference, which attracts over 2000 key manufacturing professionals seeking out innovative technologies and techniques in the area of rapid manufacturing. MM Live 2008 will provide the first and only forum in the UK for micro manufacturing technology and service providers to showcase their products.
