Driving the cost out of fasteners and assembly

The roadshow format of FAST exhibitions has proven a comfortable way of creating conversations between designers and project engineers and their many potential suppliers – developing relationships that can take business forward on a basis of trust and efficiency.

Such relationships seem to be at the heart of improving quality and reducing cost in the manufacturing industries and especially with regard to items like fasteners and adhesives – and their related delivery systems.

So following a very successful event in April at the Harrogate Pavilions, we are pleased to announce that the next FAST & IASE Exhibitions will be staged at the hugely popular and centrally located National Motorcycle Museum on 18th October this year. Positioned just outside the NEC, the venue offers abundant free parking, and the organisers have again 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.

Exhibitors are expected to again focus on low cost fastening in areas including anti-vibration and vibration-proof fasteners, mechanical locking, washers, captive fastening, press joining and clinching, as well as structural adhesives. This will enable design and production engineers to compare fasteners with a view to reducing assembly costs.

Entry to the FAST & IASE exhibitions is free and one registration provides a badge valid for both events. Pre-register online now.
