After weeks of negotiation and rumours circulating within the motion control industry, SMC is confirming its attendance at the PPMA Show this September. The announcement marks a return to the event that Milton Keynes-based SMC last attended in 2011. The Japanese-owned automation expert intends to make a real impact, with a stand that will be significantly larger than the 123m2 one used at their last tenure at the PPMA Show.

SMC’s UK Marketing Manager, Bob Hitner, comments: “We have a reputation for attending industry exhibitions with stands that get people talking: eye-catching and well-staffed to draw people in, with a carefully-selected team who can really relate to customers’ needs and concerns.

“We’ll be working hard between now and September to make sure this year’s stand builds on that reputation – so that visitors to the PPMA show know they can find us for top quality, innovative products to make them more efficient and cut costs.”

Billed as “the complete production line event for processing and packaging machinery, robots and industrial vision”, the PPMA Show runs for three days, from Tuesday 29 September to Thursday 1 October at the National Exhibition Centre near Birmingham. SMC will be on stand D70.

The company’s website and social media channels will be updated regularly with news about their attendance at the PPMA show; go to for more information.
