The aluminium industry is showing remarkable interest in the proposed Elumatec three-day in-house exhibition dedicated to aluminium fabricators, and, according to MD Phil Heavey, some of the biggest names in the industry have already signed up to be a part of the event seeing them taking display space within the show. “We have put together this exhibition to be held from Tuesday 18th to Thursday 20th September to provide fabricators and all those involved in the industry with a single source forum for both discussions and new product developments,” he comments. “So far we have had a wide variety of companies confirming their attendance, from profile suppliers through to software providers.”
Profile suppliers include Senior Aluminium Systems, Metal Technology, Sapa and Reynaers key suppliers of architectural façade systems in the UK and major players in the supply & manufacture of aluminium profiles and profile-based building systems. On the hardware front, Winkhaus and Adams Rite are both attending and will be exhibiting their range of door and window hardware. Business Micros and First Degree are representative of the increasing number of software companies that are entering the aluminium fenestration market, providing fabricators with software to calculate the breakdown of profiles and glass.
“This event is a massive opportunity for all those already involved in aluminium fabrication, or looking to make the transition over to it to meet and discuss key issues with the companies that drive this industry forward,” continues Mr Heavey. “The event will also include the introduction of two new products we are launching specifically for this market sector. The first is the EP 424 Vertical Four Point Crimper that simultaneously crimps all four corners. The vertical design is a unique space saving feature and we envisage great interest in the product. The second launch is the DG 342 Double Mitre Saw for steel sections. This product facilitates the cutting procedure of high or wide profiles, with the versatile two heads able to pivot.”
Entry to the Elumatec three-day exhibition is free to all visitors and Phil Heavey is confident that the industry as a whole will benefit from the wide range of facilities, services, products and advice on offer. “With such a large amount of interest already, and with companies of the calibre of those mentioned, we are proving that the industry is more than responsive and ready for an event dedicated solely to aluminium,” he concludes.
