MACH 2016 to feature largest ever Metalworking Village

Posted on 29 Jan 2016 by Jonny Williamson

The latest in metalforming technology will be on display at this year’s MACH 2016 exhibition after the MMMA revealed it had sold all available space in its Metalworking Village.

The Council of the Metalforming Machinery Makers Association (MMMA) is celebrating a significant response from its members, with more than 20 companies committed to exhibit…the best turnout for more than a decade.

Visitors to the Metalworking Village in Hall 4 will be able to see the latest coil processing machinery; high speed presses; press brakes; die clamping, and mechanical presses, not to mention gaining an insight into a wide spectrum of ancillary equipment and services.

There will also be a coffee lounge available for members to talk about potential customer projects and for companies looking to join the MMMA.

Chairman of the MMMA, Adrian Haller, commented:  “The Metalworking Village will be a real highlight of MACH 2016, with a diversity of technologies that are helping industries all over the UK increase production whilst introducing new products more effectively.
