Within the 'Events' section of this newsletter you will find a link to our preview of the Machine Building & Automation show that takes place on 25/26 March at the Birmingham NEC as part of Advanced Manufacturing UK. It is worth reiterating that there are several co-located events that will also be of interest to people visiting the Machine Building & Automation show.

MTEC, the sensors, measurement and instrumentation event, will have around 90 exhibitors plus there will be presentations conveniently located within the same hall.

At VTX, the vision technology event, visitors can meet many of the leading suppliers of products and systems and hear a range of presentations.

For more information about Advanced Manufacturing UK and to see the presentation schedules, go to the website.

In closing, thank you to Bernard Dufour of ATS Automation who got in touch after last month's newsletter to say that in France both Festo and Cetim offer training relating to EN IEC 62061 and EN ISO 13849-1.
