NORTHERN MANUFACTURING & Electronics returns to EventCity

With close to 250 firms expected to participate,

Northern Manufacturing & Electronics is a key showcase for industrial hardware, components and engineering solutions


orthern Manufacturing & Electronics will be taking place

this October in Manchester. The show is said to follow a similar theme to the Southern Manufacturing show, while also providing a distinctly regional focus. Northern is a key showcase for industrial

hardware, components and engineering solutions, in particular in the field of components and sub-assemblies, which traditionally makes up the biggest interest area of visitors annually. This year, around 250 firms are expected

– a mix of well-known UK companies plus international ones – offering visitors an opportunity to discover a much wider range of products and expert services than they would typically anticipate finding at a regional exhibition. The ability to address several sourcing issues at one event continues to be one of the show’s strongest aspects.

KNOWLEDGE SHARING For the first time this year, the show is teaming up with several national and regional business organisations, incorporating their expertise and local insight to profile the show to the requirements of the manufacturing supply chain within the region. Furthermore, the exhibition is backed

by the two main regional aerospace and automotive business organisations: the North West Aerospace Alliance (NWAA) and the Northern Automotive Alliance (NAA). The aerospace business in the North West makes up about a quarter of the UK’s £32bn aerospace business, makes use of around 25,000 highly trained people and supports an eco-system of suppliers across the country. The North West automotive cluster employs around 16,200 people and directly produces around £9bn of sales revenue, or 12%, of the total UK automotive manufacturing output, positioning it as the second biggest region for automotive manufacture in the UK. The exhibition is also backed by many

other well-known national organisations, including Composites UK, the Society of Motor Manufacturers & Traders (SMMT), the Gear & Toolmakers Association


(GTMA), the British Gear Association (BGA) and the Confederation of British Metalforming (CBM). Each of them delivers a wealth of technical experience and knowledge to the event, delivering both a readily available business resource and knowledge-sharing opportunities via the show’s free technical seminar programme.

COMPONENTS ON SHOW Components – both electronic and mechanical – are one of the main attractions. A few of the products on show for 2019 include membrane keyboards, graphic overlays and printed electronics from Calman Technology. Crystal-Tech Electronics showcases TFT display modules suitable for applications from consumer to medical; while ESI Technology returns with its specialised range of pressure transducers and pressure transmitters, featuring Silicon- on-Sapphire sensor technology. Luso Electronics will present a range of

power supply solutions from its global portfolio of manufacturers. Highlights include the latest modular configurable units from Excelsys, including the leading edge fanless design CoolX range. Other popular products on show include the complete range of Efore and Delta Electronics industrial and medical PSU’s, a range of medical and rail-specific models from P-Duke, the 1U high-efficiency range from N2Power, and high voltage models from HVM. There’s also ruggedised connectors from Fischer Connectors, tough enclosures from Extreme Cases, as well as specialist sensors and machine vision components from Keyence UK. Bespoke component makers include Protool Plastics, Peli Products (UK), J Coker (Rubber) and Whitehorse Plastics. Engineering subcontract

Northern is a key showcase for industrial hardware, components and engineering solutions, in particular in the field of components and sub-assemblies

services are another key area, with many different engineering disciplines available – from fabrication to complete machine build. Electronics assembly, PCBs and wiring services are also well represented. Turner Electronics, European Circuits and Scotland’s LCL Electronics return for 2019, alongside Manufacturing Services, CIE Electronics, Wireco and Hallmark Electronics. New for 2019 is HTK Europe, which supplies and distributes the HTK (Honda) range of electronic connector products in Europe, as well as UK manufactured cable harnesses and assemblies such as control panels, specialist/military vehicle wiring looms and machine vision/camera link systems.

PRODUCTION ESSENTIALS Northern Manufacturing enables visitors to view the most recent hardware being demonstrated live, from 5-axis machining to 3D printing. Major national distributors returning for 2019 include XYZ Machine Tools, Haas Automation, Laser Lines, Tri-tech 3D and HPC Laser. From China, Jinan Bodor exhibits its range of laser engraving, cutting and marking machines. Other vendors include Middlesbrough- based Dynamic Machine Tools and EDM specialists Makrep EDM Solutions.
