This week our Managing Director – Martin Lee, attended Advanced Engineering UK 2015 at the NEC in Birmingham.
Advanced Engineering covers all that is great about UK manufacturing. Whether it’s mechanical, automotive, aerospace or any other sector of engineering industry, the UK offers first-class services in advanced engineering. The show held numerous industry events under the one roof; Aero Engineering, Composites Engineering, Automotive Engineering, Performance Metals, AEUK and Enabling Innovation. The event is the UK’s largest annual event for the Advanced Engineering community. The thriving two day spectacular, in its seventh year brought together a broad range of original equipment manufacturers and supply chain tiers to discuss technology, innovation and supply chain capability.
Amongst all of the exhibits, Martin enjoyed the Composites Technology overview. “It was great to see the developments in composite materials; the growth will no doubt expand applications.” He was also pleased to see the advancement in Engineering technology. “Working within an industry that is constantly expanding and evolving, it was great to see various exhibits showcasing just how much technology has grown” An example of this was the Sailrocket 2, the fastest sailing boat in the world! The wind powered, high speed boat manufactured from new foil technology, broke the outright world speed sailing record three times. With a top speed of: 68.33 knots (78.63 mpw)
Overall, our MD had a fantastic day at the brilliant event.
