MecklerMedia's Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo Announces Australian Trade Show Venture with Reed Exhibitions' National Manufacturing Week (NMW)

May 11-13, 2016 in Sydney, Australia

NEW YORK, Oct. 7, 2015 -- MecklerMedia Corporation (OTCQX: MECK) announced a partnership with Reed Exhibitions Australia to co-locate its Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo with Reed Exhibitions' flagship manufacturing event, National Manufacturing Week (NMW) on May 11-13, 2016.


Inside 3D Printing is the largest professional 3D printing and additive manufacturing event worldwide, giving the industry a first-hand look at how 3D printing is revolutionizing industries including manufacturing, medicine, architecture, aerospace, and more.

Reed Exhibitions' National Manufacturing Week is Australia's largest annual showcase of manufacturing innovation, information, and inspiration. Scheduled for May 11-13, 2016 at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park, NMW 2016 will build on outcomes of the previous events, where the large majority of visitors achieved key objectives such as updates on industry trends, sourcing innovations, and placing orders for new products and services.

Christoph Rowen, Managing Director, Asia-Pacific for MecklerMedia commented that the co-location is based on a natural fit between NMW and Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo. Rowen described NMW's Additive Manufacturing Zone - which showcases processes for building up components - as the logical 'home' for Inside 3D Printing exhibitors, while Inside 3D Printing conference delegates will see added value in the opportunity to visit NMW 2016's comprehensive exhibition.

John Gorton, Executive Director, Reed Exhibitions Australia added, "Reed Exhibitions is delighted to announce our strategic cooperation with MecklerMedia to co-locate NMW 2016 with the Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo."

"Inside 3D Printing is a world-leading event for a game-changing area of technology. As it evolves, 3D printing technology is transforming almost every major industry: especially manufacturing, where it is already beginning to disrupt existing processes and open up exciting new opportunities for industry."

"By co-locating with the Inside 3D Printing Conference & Expo, NMW 2016 will give visitors a broader, deeper access to the technologies, strategies and opportunities associated with additive manufacturing. We are confident this expanded offering will maximize the value of participation in NMW 2016 for exhibitors, sponsors, conference delegates, and trade visitors."

Universal Robots - Collaborative Robot Solutions

Universal Robots is a result of many years of intensive research in robotics. The product portfolio includes the UR5 and UR10 models that handle payloads of up to 11.3 lbs. and 22.6 lbs. respectively. The six-axis robot arms weigh as little as 40 lbs. with reach capabilities of up to 51 inches. Repeatability of +/- .004" allows quick precision handling of even microscopically small parts. After initial risk assessment, the collaborative Universal Robots can operate alongside human operators without cumbersome and expensive safety guarding. This makes it simple and easy to move the light-weight robot around the production, addressing the needs of agile manufacturing even within small- and medium sized companies regarding automation as costly and complex. If the robots come into contact with an employee, the built-in force control limits the forces at contact, adhering to the current safety requirements on force and torque limitations. Intuitively programmed by non-technical users, the robot arms go from box to operation in less than an hour, and typically pay for themselves within 195 days. Since the first UR robot entered the market in 2009, the company has seen substantial growth with the robotic arms now being sold in more than 50 countries worldwide.
