H&P takes a closer look at what visitors can expect


Smart Manufacturing & Engineering Week 2024 (https://www.mandeweek.co.uk/) will address the key issues that concern manufacturing and engineering businesses currently, irrespective of the market sector they serve. The main topics that all elements of the wide-ranging events touch upon are innovation, the supply chain, sustainability, digital transformation and people and skills.

Demonstrating the importance of the event to their members The British Fluid Power Association (BFPA) has become a Strategic Partner for Smart Manufacturing & Engineering Week 2024 where, naturally, their focus is on the Fluid Power & Systems and Air-Tech events. Chris Butcher, Managing Director said of the partnership, “The event is fantastic, for our members to have such a shop window to present their products, technologies and innovation is fantastic news for UK manufacturing.

“The fluid power industry has gone through a significant technology transition with the integration of electronics, robotics, mechatronics, and the high level of automation and control across many market sectors. We think there’s a great synergy between the different areas of the event to provide our members, and the visitors that come to see them, with a showcase that covers all aspects of their technical challenges, and the new innovations that are driving system efficiency, automation, sustainability and power density.”

The BFPA will have a stand at Fluid Power & Systems and representatives will be available to meet with both members and prospective members to discuss their education and training courses as well as giving presentations at the main theatres on key topics.

Educational content & summits

One of the standout attractions for readers of Hydraulics and Pneumatics will be the Manufacturing Automation & Robotics Summit which will see operations, automation and control and manufacturing professionals coming together to discuss the latest automation and robotics opportunities and find actionable solutions to industry challenges.

When talking about the summit Grace Gilling, Manufacturing Portfolio Director of Smart Manufacturing & Engineering Week 2024 said: “Manufacturers in the UK are experiencing a monumental shift in the way they operate. Automation and robotics are not just buzzwords; it’s a fundamental revolution that is reshaping how goods are produced, processed, and delivered to the market. While the promises of increased efficiency, reduced costs, and improved quality are enticing, the road to embracing these technologies is not without its hurdles This summit is dedicated to exploring the rapidly evolving landscape of automation and robotics in the manufacturing industry, and more importantly, addressing the challenges that manufacturers face in this transformative era.”
