Add Vacuum Expo to your diary!

Why? Because Vacuum Expo which will be held at Ricoh Arena, Coventry on the 9th & 10th October 2019. Two action-packed days of learning, networking and connecting of suppliers, trade groups, technology developers and consultants with users of vacuum technologies in manufacturing, R&D and machine building – it is a must-attend.

Vacuum technology is used in a multitude of situations it is a central commodity in the technology for manufacturing a host of products which are now part of everyday living, such as the glasses we wear, TV screens, photovoltaic panels and the chips in our PCs and this leads to our slogan: Behind Everything in Life, there’s Vacuum.

An enabling technology

Vacuum is a goto technology for enabling a vast diversity of applications and processes. Leak detection is an example, at the core of a leak detector is a vacuum system. The number of components and systems which must be systematically checked for leaks is constantly rising around the world. This is because in many industries both the quality and the functionality of components and apparatus are closely connected with their tightness. Typical applications are; Pharmaceutical packaging, medical devices, automotive powertrain and fuel systems, HVAC manufacturers, aerospace and semiconductors.

Opportunity to view live demonstrations.

In the exhibition there will be live demonstrations of equipment and every step of processes from factory handling to accelerator science will be covered. Alongside there is a selection of specialist meetings as part of the co-located 10th Vacuum Symposium. Vacuum Expo offers a unique vantage point for engineers to develop their knowledge in vacuum technology handling and attend a range of expert-lead training sessions which will explore the usage, implications and challenges of such technology in the UK’s highly-demanding industry.

Speaking after the 2018 event about the Vacuum Symposium, Laurence Devereux, Event Director commented “Training places at the Vacuum Symposium were full very early in the year with the most popular training session being ‘Vacuum – the basic principles’. It just shows how important ongoing professional development is for engineers in industry and research” he added “Vacuum Expo has yet again increased its attendance and is firmly established as the No 1 meeting place for vacuum technologies.”
