SUBCON summary...

This month Plunkett Associates attended our first show of the year, exhibiting at The Engineer Design & Innovation Show within SUBCON.

Plunkett Associates standAs always it was a great opportunity to meet new and existing clients and have the opportunity to catch up with old friends. Thank you to everyone who came to see us.

But of course what we were really there for, was to be able to showcase the huge variety of processes and options that Plunkett Associates can provide clients.

As always our strapline, ‘We Get Things Made’  both mystified and amazed, as we explained the breath and depth of what we actually can do to get parts made.

With low volume production parts being our speciality, and specialist, trusted suppliers across the globe, visitors started to see the benefits of not having an allegiance to any particular process, allowing us to provide an unbiased solution to each and every project. To get an idea of the scope of processes and materials we work with, take a look at our Examples page.

We sent our new recruit, Cheuk, along to see what it was all about. He gave us his thoughts as a first timer to the Show:Loopwheels

“It was the first time I’ve represented a company at a big event such as Subcon, so it was really exciting! 

The piece that caught the most attention on our stand as always, was the wheelchair and it’s peculiar suspension design – you can read more about the Loopwheel design and the aluminium die cast part in our showcase article further on.Clear part

In addition, the clear polished exhibition piece on our front desk dazzled quite a few passers-by, they were quite surprised to find out it was highly polished CNC’d acrylic!  

We also had an aluminium tool on show, highlighting the possibilities for low volume plastic injection moulding.Aluminium Tool

It was a fantastic opportunity for me to be able to look around the exhibition, seeing what other companies were showcasing - A 5-axis CNC machine and a live 3D scanning system at work; 3D printers creating bespoke parts before your eyes… and I wonder what metal balloons could be used for?"

All we can say is, roll on the next one!

We will be exhibiting next at TCT on 26 -28th September. Stand E56 at Birmingham's NEC.
