Plant & Asset Management Exhibition revs up for April showcase

Published:  24 March, 2022

With the countdown almost over Plant &Asset Management Exhibition 2022 (5-7 April 2022, NEC, Birmingham), the UK’s premier event for plant, asset, maintenance and works management engineers and directors, will once again open its doors and bring together key suppliers of state-ofthe-art equipment representing the multitasking culture of today’s engineering professionals.

The biennial event is part of the colocation of events that take place at the NEC, Birmingham between the 5-7 April, which includes Drives & Controls, Smart Industry Expo, Fluid Power & Systems, and Air-Tech Exhibitions. These events run alongside MACH.

Exhibitors include: SPM Instrument UK, Fixturlaser, Fluke, EA Technology, Keytracker, Pragmatic Maintenance & Reliability, Lee Spring, Maintmaster, Pruftechnik, SEAM Group, Senseye, T Cards Direct, Ultimo, plus many more.

Alongside Plant & Asset Management Exhibition 2022, the co-location also sees the return of Drives & Controls Exhibition 2022 which will once again bring together key suppliers of state-of-the-art equipment representing the multi-tasking culture of today’s design engineer, covering critical areas such as energy efficiency, machine safety, drives, motion control, robotics, and automation plus much more, all under one roof.

To complement both Plant & Asset Management and Drives & Controls Exhibitions is the now firmly established Smart Industry Expo, where visitors will have the ideal opportunity to learn about digitalisation and how to prepare and implement a strategy in this smart era as well as being able to discuss a wide range of issues from components to Predictive Maintenance 4.0, Logistics 4.0, and smart grid technologies amongst others.

Taking place alongside Plant & Asset Management Exhibition 2022, Drives & Controls Exhibition and Smart Industry Expo will also be Air-Tech 2022, which is set to highlight current key themes related to the very latest in air compressor and related technology from companies from around the globe. The event is supported by the British Compressed Air Society (BCAS) and is the UK’s only dedicated event for the compressed air and generators market.

In addition, Fluid Power & Systems 2022, also part of the co-location, will focus on a comprehensive range of hydraulic and pneumatic equipment, together with products that facilitate better electromechanic system design and application for improved process automation, control, monitoring and analytics.

Running alongside Plant & Asset Management Exhibition 2022 and the colocation of events will be Talking Industry Live and The Knowledge Hub seminar theatres.

Talking Industry Live will include CPD accredited panel discussions that will fully reflect the ongoing global transformation to the smart manufacturing era and provide fascinating panel discussions and insight into the potential plants of the future.

Of particular interest to those visiting Plant & Asset Management Exhibition 2022 will be the focus on Maintenance 4.0, which will be a key Taking Industry Live panel discussion. This important panel discussion will look at the arguments surrounding the benefits, challenges, and overall importance of implementing a Maintenance 4.0 strategy in today’s factories and plants. It will be chaired by Prof John Ahmet Erkoyuncu, Cranfield University who will be joined by by Dean Whittle, Senior Reliability Engineer, RMS Reliability, Matt Grogan, Technical Sales Engineer, SPM Instrument UK, and Daniel Phillips-Fern, IXON UK & Ireland Country Manager.

Maintenance 4.0 includes a holistic view of sources of data, ways to connect it, ways to collect it, and ways to analyse it, and is a machine-assisted digital form of all the things we have being doing for the past 40 years to ensure our assets deliver value for our organisations.

While The Knowledge Hub will have a strong emphasis on technology that will bring together all aspects of plant and asset management, hydraulics, pneumatics, robotics and automation, energy efficiency, machine safety, drives, motion control, legislation, system strategies and technological developments. Featuring representatives from across industry including government agencies, research bodies, trade associations, and manufacturers.

The Society of Operations Engineers (SOE) for example will be discussing practical ways its members can help inspect, maintain, and manage the machinery and equipment which keeps manufacturers functioning.

Other seminars and case studies will include presentations from the MTC, CSA Catapult, Made Smarter, UKRI, BFPA, BCAS, Pilz, Primary Engineer, plus many others.
