The European Society for Precision Engineering and Nanotechnology (euspen) continues to cement its status as the most proactive and prominent society in the vibrant precision engineering sector in Europe, and plans are well advanced for the 18th in its series of Annual conferences and exhibitions, this year to be held in Venice, Italy 4-8 June.

The 5-day event located in the Venice Terminal Passeggeri (VTP) provides a leading forum for both industrialists, R&D professionals, and academics to review the best of world-wide industrial innovation, progressive research, and technology developments in the micro and nano manufacturing sector.

Attendees at the conference and exhibition will be able to access information relating to the latest developments in traditional precision engineering fields such as metrology, ultra precision machining, additive and replication processes, precision mechatronic systems and control, and precision cutting processes. New cutting edge topics will also be addressed covering robotics and automation, Industry 4.0 for precision manufacturing, and applications of precision engineering in biomedical sciences.

Dishi Phillips, Business Development Manager at euspen explains,There is no doubt that the area of precision engineering is extremely dynamic, and that for OEMs working on projects on the micro and nano-scale there are numerous twists and turns to navigate to ensure optimal commercial success”.

“OEMs, technology solution providers, academics, and researchers are not discrete groups in the precision engineering arena, and it is vital for all involved to tap into networks, events, and information resources in order to understand what opportunities exist. euspen sees the importance of (and nurtures) professional partnerships and business and research relationships that are the lifeblood of future commercial successes. Above all else, this is what the euspen annual event promotes.”

In addition to the 5-day international conference, workshops, and tutorials, the annual euspen event also boasts one of the largest exhibitions of key players in the provision of technology solutions for the precision engineering and nanotechnology sector in the world. The exhibition allows delegates to see and discuss existing technology solutions and imminent developments that will optimise manufacturing endeavours moving forward.

Networking is the key to the success of euspen’s events, and the conference and exhibition are designed to allow delegates, speakers, and exhibitors alike the ability to meet and discuss issues of immediate relevance to the area of micro and nano manufacturing. To stimulate such cross fertilisation of ideas and experiences, in addition to the on-site opportunities, delegates are able to attend the prestigious euspen annual networking dinner, and also tours that have been arranged to institutions close to the Venice venue.

This year delegates can choose from a visit to Consorzio RFX, a research organization that performs scientific and technological research activities in the field of controlled thermonuclear fusion; the Laboratory for Micro and Precision Manufacturing of the University of Padua, which is expert in the development, mastering and exploitation of the enabling technologies for the manufacturing of the future; or Marposs Spa, a leader in precision equipment for measurement and control in the production environment.

The flagship euspen annual Conference and Exhibition is now established as the largest and most prestigious gathering of industrial and academic professionals in the precision engineering space. The event in Venice is set to be the biggest yet, and registration is now open, and there are limited opportunities left for companies wishing to exhibit.
