Bolt it or bond it? Rivet it or clinch it? Drill it or self-pierce it? Assemble it for subsequent disassembly or put it together forever? When it comes to fastening and bonding in engineering or industrial applications there is only one exhibition dedicated exclusively to the subject – the FAST and IASE events being held at the National Motorcycle Museum on 18 October this year. The Fastening & Assembly Solutions and Technology exhibition focuses on ‘mechanical’ fastening and assembly, and the Industrial Adhesives and Sealants Exhibition does likewise in the field of adhesives.
Here, visitors can discover and discuss all the latest products, processes and methods to have emerged recently in the field of fastening, bonding and assembly for manufacturing applications. From electronics and electrical equipment manufacture to aerospace and automotive and everything in between, this is the event that helps the UK’s engineers and manufacturers continue to innovate, improve quality and drive down costs. Got a fastening or assembly-related problem? Bring your drawings and/or parts and discuss the variety of options with some of the UK’s most experienced application experts.
Positioned just outside the NEC, the National Motorcycle Museum will again play host to FAST and IASE with abundant free parking, and the organisers have also arranged for a free bacon roll and brew to be waiting for all pre-registered visitors on arrival, as well as a free museum pass otherwise priced at £8.95.
To be amongst the first to see, discuss and evaluate everything new (methods, products, practices and suppliers) in engineering and industrial fastening, adhesives and assembly, simply go to the exhibition websites and pre-register now. Entry to FAST and IASE exhibitions is free. One registration provides a badge valid for both events and pre-registration can be done at www.fastenerexhibition.com or www.adhesives-show.com.
