Analox’s design team were sent to Coventry for the day to visit the Engineering Design Show.
Held at the Ricoh Arena, Coventry on the 18-19 October, the show had over 4200 visitors. The show was established in 2011 for design engineers in the mechanical, electromechanical and electronics sectors to discover the newest developments in the industry.
As well as exhibitors, stalls and seminars, there were workshop sessions including how to troubleshoot EMC issues and the evolution of PCB design skill sets.
There was a large emphasis mechanical design, 3D printing as well as the ‘Internet of Things’, where everyday things such as buildings, cars and other physical items can exchange data and be connected to the internet.
There were lots of freebies on offer and the team had a competition to see who could come back with the most goodies, with items including pens, screwdrivers, mugs and evaluation boards.
Lewis Gorford, Electronics Engineer said: “The Engineering Design Show was a very insightful day out, with lots of new equipment and ideas to consider. We also got the opportunity to meet some of our existing suppliers face-to-face for the very first time, which is always good in building relationships throughout the supply chain.”
