26 May 2022

Maintec 2022, the premier event for those responsible for maintenance engineering is back from 8-9th June at Birmingham’s NEC. Part of Manufacturing & Engineering Week 2022, alongside 3 other engineering events – Manufacturing Expo, Engineering Expo & Design Expo – this is a must-attend event for those looking to source the latest maintenance technologies to secure the efficiency & reliability of their business for the future.

Maintec has been a leading event in the maintenance engineering calendar for over 40 years, showcasing the very best in innovation within the sector and sharing practical solutions to common maintenance engineering dilemmas.

Sponsored by ABB Motion, Nanoprecise and SafetyKleen, Maintec 2022 will feature a wide range of maintenance-focused products and services from over 100 exhibitors, making it the idea place to source equipment and solutions for any engineering business. A comprehensive CPD accredited conference and workshop programme will see industry leaders imparting knowledge and advice that will benefit maintenance engineers in their role. Keep your eyes open for a special challenge built around the famous 1980s Great Egg Race television show.

Conferences
Enjoy a full line-up of informative talks from some of the most respected figures in the maintenance engineering sector. Hear their perspectives on a range of current issues facing the sector and learn about real life case studies that show their solutions in action. Seminar topics include:
•    The current state of the maintenance industry after Covid-19
•    Making savings on compressed air
•    Smart asset management
•    Understanding the supply chain

In addition, there will be a live, interactive hacking session where top experts in cyber security will demonstrate some of the risks posed by hackers to maintenance engineering.

Many manufacturers are only at the beginning of their cyber-security journey and are looking to gain a better understanding of the current threats and source the products and services to increase cyber resilience,” says Jos Diamond, Event Manager for Manufacturing & Engineering Week organisers, Nineteen Group. “The live hacking session will help to highlight some of the threats posed, including potential areas of vulnerability, and will explain the best ways to counter them using the latest techniques and technologies.

Workshops
Rapid advances in maintenance technologies, and the changes wrought by the COVID-19 pandemic, are transforming the possibilities for maintenance in industrial plants. To help you keep up, and explain what’s possible, Maintec will feature a comprehensive range of workshops covering a broad range of topics aimed at helping you build a robust maintenance engineering strategy for the future. Examples of topics covered over the two days include: How to Avoid Predictive Maintenance Project Failure; Autonomous Maintenance Integrated in Ultimo EAM; Bio-Remediating Parts Washers; and Vibration Analysis 4.0.

Exhibitors
Over 100 exhibitors will be in attendance at Maintec 2022, showcasing their latest products, services and solutions to help keep workplaces running efficiently and smoothly. Exhibitors include Smaks Ltd, Nanoprecise Sci Corp, Petro-Canada Lubricants, Boccard UK and Boneham.

Digital events
If Covid-19 taught us anything, it is how useful digital technology can be for business. This year, supplementing the in-person elements of the event, Manufacturing & Engineering Week 2022 will offer a selection of online session on topics impacting the industry hosted by major players in the sector, including Juergen Maier CBE who is Chair of the Digital Catapult, co-Chair of Made Smarter and serves on the Industrial Strategy Council which advises the UK Government on Industrial Strategy. Delegates can register for access to these webinars and watch them on-demand at a time that is convenient to them.

Innovation zone
An innovation zone will bring together a range of companies offering ground-breaking solutions to help tackle some of the key issues facing UK manufacturing businesses and help them to transform their production and maintenance. Sponsored by Arrow, a global provider of technology products, services & solutions, the Innovation Zone will showcase live demonstrations of the UK’s most cutting-edge products, helping visitors discover the latest technologies that are shaping the future of British industry.  Highlights include an AI car and the world’s first VTOL bi-plane, displayed by Coventry University’s Formula Student and UAS Challenge Teams, in association with the Institution of Mechanical Engineers, plus an Aston Martin Formula 1 racing car simulator which uses cloud ERP from software vendor IFS. Have a spin in the simulator for a chance to take part in the fastest lap competition, take your spot on the Top Gear style leader board and win prizes!

Networking
With the involvement of global leaders in manufacturing and engineering, Maintec 2022 is a great place to connect with like-minded maintenance engineering professionals. Key opportunities for networking will include a drinks reception on day one of the event with all delegates invited to attend.

Shaped by experts
A key ingredient in the creation of both Maintec and Manufacturing & Engineering Week has been the involvement of an Advisory Board of UK experts, bringing together experience from across industry, trade associations, professional bodies, government and academia to help shape a programme of radically new events.

Selected from well-known experts in their field, Advisory Board members are recommended by their peers and are often senior people in their respective organisations.

Stephen Phipson CBE, Chief Executive, MAKE UK is the current chair of the Advisory Board: “There has never been a more important time for our sector to pull together and to work together, to create a shared agenda, help promote and encourage manufacturing and engineering innovation, and see our sectors grow – and Manufacturing & Engineering Week  will do exactly that.

I am delighted to be part of the M&E Week Advisory Board and that MAKE UK are a partner for this ground-breaking event.

MAKE UK champions and celebrates British manufacturing and manufacturers. Representing 20,000 UK manufacturers, MAKE UK focuses on creating a supportive environment in which they can thrive, innovate and compete.

As part of Nineteen Group’s support for diversity and promoting women in engineering, half of the Advisory board is made up of prominent women in their respective fields.

Manufacturing & Engineering Week is also supported by many other leading organisations, including: the Women’s Engineering Society – an organisation that promotes women’s education in engineering; the Institute of Export & International Trade – the professional body for importers and exporters; Napier – a B2B technology PR & marketing agency; the Institution of Mechanical Engineers; the Manufacturing Technology Centre – set up to bridge the gap between academia and industry; the Advanced Propulsion Centre – facilitates funding for low-carbon emission powertrains; High Value Manufacturing  Catapult – helps new concepts become commercial; Innovate UK – a public body that promotes innovation; Made Smarter UK – helps grow manufacturing through digital technologies; and the UK government’s Department for Business, Energy & Industrial Strategy.

Make it a date in your diary
With all this and more, including a range of on-site events such as an exciting new Great Egg Race feature, Maintec 2022 promises to be an unmissable addition to the 2022 industrial exhibition calendar.
