On the precision side, we have a new expanded line of Lite Pressure compression springs to show. Representatives will be available to discuss custom capabilities and project specific needs also.”

Neil Mead, managing editor of the Industrial Division at Datateam Business Media comments: “This year’s seminar programme will feature expert speakers from a range of companies including Beamex, Green Hills Software and Shawcity. It has been specifically designed to help visitors address current challenges within the sector and move forward.”

Independent embedded software provider, Green Hills, will delve into the topic ‘Securing the Internet of Things’. Christopher Smith, vice president of marketing, Green Hills Software comments: “The design of internet connected devices and systems – from remote sensors, to offshore connected instrumentation, to power stations – must be fundamentally architected for security to keep the hackers out. Green Hills Software has been working with customers for over 30 years, helping them achieve the highest levels of security, safety and reliability.”

Alex Graft, product specialist manager at Shawcity will be analysing the subject of ‘Gas Detection and the Offshore Process Engineer’. Graft explains what visitors can anticipate from the talk: “The work of the Process Engineer and Industrial Hygienist is diverse and can involve dealing with a great number of risks and processes that must be managed and monitored. Our presentation aims to help simplify that process by looking at what is required across some standard projects and how those requirements can be managed and streamlined with the newest technologies specifically looking at gas detection.”
