1 min read

The Digital Manufacturing Centre (DMC) will demonstrate its production additive manufacturing (AM) capabilities at the forthcoming MACH 2022 exhibition.

Visitors to the DMC stand will be greeted by numerous AM-produced parts from automotive, motorsport, aerospace and space. For those interested in learning about the capabilities of state-of-the-art AM technologies, the DMC’s application engineers will be on-hand to deliver complementary consultations.

The DMC will also host the event’s Inspiration Zone, through the support of partners Laser Lines and Stratasys. Created to inspire the next generation of STEM students, the Zone will showcase the latest in AM technology with six MakerBot Sketch production systems. Following the conclusion of MACH 2022, the exhibit will be relocated to the DMC and run as a full-time educational installation.

DMC CEO Kieron Salter, will be delivering a presentation as part of the event’s Additive Morning on Wednesday 6th April (10:30 -11:00am). Hosted in the Seminar theatre, Salter will address ‘Building a supply chain for additive manufacturing’, taking a look at the viability of contemporary AM in meeting production requirements and the necessity of a robust, multi-technology, sector-agnostic AM supply chain in the UK.

He said: “MACH 2022 will be a fantastic opportunity for businesses and individuals from across the manufacturing sector to link up and explore some of the exciting changes and evolutions in manufacturing technology.

"With so few industry events having taken place over the past two years, there is a real buzz of excitement as we begin to move beyond the pandemic. Certainly, the manufacturing sector is set to play a crucial role in the UK’s post-pandemic, post-Brexit recovery.

“The DMC team will be exhibiting a number of components on stand 17-541. We’re looking forward to meeting up with our technical partners, equipment suppliers and, of course, our customers from across UK industry. I encourage anyone interested in learning more about the DMC to come and visit the stand and to join us for MACH 2022 Additive Hour.”
