Southern Manufacturing gears up for 2016

01 December, 2015

Southern Manufacturing and Electronics returns to FIVE, Farnborough, from February 9 to 11 2016. Following this year’s record-breaking attendance, one of the UK’s most enduring engineering exhibitions will retain its popular three-day format.

Exhibitions can provide a very time-efficient way to research new products and meet new vendors, and this is certainly true of Southern Manufacturing, which packs-in an extensive choice of companies under one roof. With 800+ firms participating, the show is without doubt one of the UK’s key market places for engineering equipment and services.

Ideally situated close to the M3 in Hampshire and well-served by public transport, the event is easy to get to and the concentration of vendors makes it possible to cover a lot of ground in a very short time period. Technology trails assist visitors around the three main areas of the show – manufacturing, electronics and automotive/aerospace engineering – enabling them to make the best use of time at the exhibition and locate what they need rapidly.

Fluid power and related equipment

Southern is a major marketplace for big-name machinery manufacturers to give live demonstrations of their latest offerings. However, the show is also a key event for OEM products, sub-assemblies, sensors and components. The areas of motion control, fluid power, controls, sensors, HMI’s and electromechanical components are traditionally very well represented. Big-name component distributors returning for 2016 include RS Components, Finder PLC and Phoenix Contact. There are numerous vendors of OEM products, such as Trans-Tronic, Delta Line and Bernstein, featuring its selection of machine safety sensors, as well as many a huge selection of firms of special interest to individuals associated with motion, fluid power and pneumatics. A few examples include Perfect Bore Manufacturing, igus UK, Kabelschleppe Metool, Hepco Motion, Ondrives, Atlas Copco, Filtermist, KNF Neuberger UK among many more.

On display on the Bowers Group’s stand will be the new Sylvac Scan Vision System and the Baty R400 with FT2E Touch Screen Display, complementing the range of Sylvac products, including Bluetooth Data Transmission hand tools such as Calipers, Micrometers and Digital Indicators along with the Ultra Light Digital Caliper and Ultra Light Digital Universal Beam Gauge. A selection of New Bowers XT3 Bluetooth and XT Analogue Bore Gauge systems will also be on display.
