This month we have an exciting announcement about a new machinery safety consultancy. If the names of the individuals are not familiar to you, their previous employers almost certainly will be. Have a look at the first editorial item about Astute Machinery Consultants.

Other news this month ranges from machinery safety products and training, through power supplies, additive manufacturing and load cells, to enclosures, springs and single-board computing. Scroll down, as I’m sure there will be something that catches your eye.

And finally, we have produced an issue of this newsletter every month since April 2007 but, after 136 issues, the editorial team will be taking a short break over the summer. We hope this will not inconvenience you. The next newsletter will be published on Wednesday 5 September.
