Seco — ‘cleared for take-off’Seco Tools has announced that its annual ‘Inspiration through Innovation’ advanced-manufacturing best-practice event (now in its fifth year) will take place on Wednesday 9 and Thursday 10 October at its Technology Centre in Alcester — and will be focused exclusively on the aerospace sector.

Mike Fleming — strategic marketing, products and services manager at Seco Tools (UK) Ltd — said: “We review Inspiration through Innovation every year and make changes to its content and structure to increase its appeal and relevance.

“This year, we have made the strategic decision to focus on one industry segment.

“With the economy facing a period of uncertainty, the UK will rely heavily on its most successful industries to provide growth, jobs and innovation.

“The UK has the second-largest aerospace sector in the world, with a turnover of £31 billion last year — including £27 billion in exports.

“From a manufacturing perspective, this sector is characterised by constant innovation — specifically in the use and application of new materials, the design and implementation of challenging machining and manufacturing processes, and improvements in quality and safety while reducing costs and environmental impacts.

“Aerospace is a global industry with high growth potential that relies on innovation; it is here that we and our Technical Partners have considerable experience and expertise — hence our selection of aerospace as the focus for this year’s event.”

At Inspiration through Innovation 2019, there will be 30 Technical Partners taking part in eight aerospace machining demonstrations.

Taking place on both days of the event, these will involve the machining of real components or — in the case of large components like aero-engine casings — the machining of real or typical ‘look alike’ features.

Moreover, there will be eight seminars, each one delivered by a recognised industry expert and focused on a relevant aerospace manufacturing and/or machining issue.
