02 Oct Northern Manufacturing & Electronics Show 2015
Yesterday we popped round the M60 (we’re located just off the M60, J22) to EventCity to visit the Northern Manufacturing and Electronics show 2015. We wanted to visit existing suppliers, customers and source a few more suppliers to help facilitate upcoming orders for 2015/16.
One of the highlights of the show was the Trumpf show-piece stand. Demonstrating a working press brake (TruBend 3100) and CNC punch machine (TruPunch 2000) which certainly got the visitors attention as most would have heard the punch before you saw the beaut in action! It’s a smaller, more compact, version of our CNC punch machines (a 3000 and 5000), and was in full swing demonstrating the range of tool options, scribing options and automatic part drop shoot (all functions on our punch machines).
Businesses from all walks of manufacturing exhibited from fastener suppliers and ERP software to machine manufacturers and LCD screen designers. A treasure trove of contacts and future suppliers that will ultimately help us facilitate your next project, whether it’s a point of display/POS unit or metal security cabinet.
It was great to see local Oldham, Manchester and North West businesses at the show alongside some industry giants from across the Globe. We look forward to attending next year again.
And of course, like any good exhibition the CAD team made off with a freebie; this little desk coaster gem was manufactured at the show on the Trumpf TruPunch 2000. No more tea cup stains on the desks for us!
