A review of the Advanced Handling at 2016 events...
MACH; We started this year with a beautiful new stand built for us and biennial engineering-based manufacturing technologies event Mach was the debut event. The stand was set up ready for visitors to try out the equipment in real-life scenarios, such as lifting heavy reels to and from shelves, or experiencing the “weightless lifting” of a car engine using our Movomech manipulators.
Open Day; Held at our Market Deeping facility, our Open Day was a fantastic opportunity to unveil our brand new showroom and present the Sunnex Lifting Technology product range at its fullest. Over thirty leading manufacturing companies from aerospace, food and drink, engineering and transport industries enjoyed hands on product demonstrations. Also in the showroom was a Formula 1 simulator complete with leader board. Our competition winner took home winner’s champagne and tickets to the British Grand Prix!
IMHX; The International Materials Handling Exhibition is a staple of the manual handling calendar that only comes around every 3 years so everyone goes all out for this 4 day event. We chose this event to be the launch of our new Elevation static scissor table range. We had our Technical director available on the stand for one of the days, inviting visitors to challenge him with their bespoke materials handling problems with proved very popular!
This year we also have an interactive competition to show just how easy (and fun) our equipment can be to use.
Health and Safety North; At this regional event the sales team took a small selection of our Pronomic lifting trolleys for a hands on demo of their capabilities. Visitors came with some great enquiries requiring bespoke solutions. Although this was our smallest show of the season it was the source of our most interesting show lead for the year J We look forward to progressing the enquiry through to an order and will hopefully be able to tell you all about it as part of a case study example next year.
