    Hi, I am trying to contact companies specialising in handling systems for difficult products i.e. aluminium honeycomb both in block and expanded form from 200 x 80 x 1000 mm to 1200 x 300 x 2300 mm in various cell sizes. I have tried a couple of companies who in the end couldn't help so any suggestions would be gratefully received and followed up. The ultimate aim is to automate assembly processes and reduce risk of WRULD's for the operators. I would also like to attend exhibitions / seminars etc where I could learn more about materials handling so if anyone can suggest the best UK shows...

    Please share your ideas on this thought for the day - How do you communicate within your manufacturing business? Do your staff understand where you are going as a business and do they feel informed? How often to you communicate with all staff? If you operate across different plants and locations do staff ever get the chance to meet and understand what other business units do? Let us hear your thoughts on this - share best practice so other manufacturers can benefit from your insights. We look forward to hearing your replies.

    H, thanks for the advice, we use MEK on site already and I think your right in saying it may not tackify the material enough but we I will speak to our technical department to see if we have completed trials with this in the past and if not it is worth giving it a try so thanks for the suggestion. I have also printing off the PDF and will send this on to our technical department too. Thank you

    Hi, Adam Desforges I spoke to one of my colleagues out in the field and he said a company he visited last week has replaced using toluene with Mythel Ether Ketone (MEK), although he did say he was'nt sure if it harsh enough to tackify the material though. Also, I'm not sure if you've seen this leaflet (attached) before but one of my colleagues in eneviormnetal policy thought it would be good to share with you. Thanks Amy

    The world of manufacturing is a world of ideas - from concept to finished product - the whole product cycle goes through a series of ideas. Those who work in manufacturing are ideas driven people. On the EEF Manufacturing Network we encourage our members to share their ideas with others in order to help strengthen manufacturing in the UK. For example - how do you communicate changes to your workforce when implementing new technologies? Recently we did this in our brand new series called Manufacturing Focus. The series started with Siemens - making digitalisation a reality for the UK...
