Latest exhibitors announced for Engineering Materials Live and FAST Exhibitions

With one month to go until doors open for the co-located FAST Exhibition and Engineering Materials Live exhibitions, the event has so far seen record pre-registration levels for attendees and several new additions to its exhibitor portfolio of leading suppliers from the fastening, bonding and engineering materials sectors.

Exhibitors are continuing to sign-up for stand space at the new Engineering Materials Live and FAST exhibitions. The portfolio is being driven by record visitor pre-registration from across the UK’s varied engineering and manufacturing sectors.

Taking place at the National Motorcycle Museum, Birmingham on 11th May, Engineering Materials Live is co-located with the established Fastening & Assembly Solutions and Technology Exhibition (FAST). Running since 2005, the FAST Exhibition provides visitors with direct access to experienced application experts in fastening, bonding and assembly.

The latest industry names to sign up to exhibit their range of products and services at Engineering Materials Live include; Biesterfeld Petroplas, Corex Honeycomb, Curtiss-Wright Surface Technologies, forteq UK, Granta Design, Midas Pattern Company, Nylacast, Plastic Parts Direct, Proto Labs, Ultrapolymers, Vantage Polymers and Ward Polymers.

With a month still to go until the doors open, more than 500 design and production engineers have already pre-registered to visit the event to find solutions to their design challenges in lightweighting, materials selection and multi-materials joining. The co-location of these two complementary exhibitions, combined with an extensive seminar programme, allows visitors to achieve much more in a single visit.

Eight technical seminars will run during the day focusing on the latest technology developments in areas including UV light curing, additive manufacturing, prototyping, injection moulding, bonding, thermoplastic compounds and surface preparation.

Pre-registering for the event is easy and ensures free entry to the exhibition and seminar sessions. VIP visitors will also qualify for free access to the museum to experience the world’s largest collection of motorcycles. The exhibitor list and seminar programme can be found online.
