Welcome to Birmingham and MACH Exhibition 2018, the UK's premier manufacturing technologies event put on by Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA). All stands showing machines, tools and parts to help craft and build the end product that may be sold on or other people on the floor will build into there pipeline. Moving the part to the next stage of the greater cycle. Making one part or tool to fold back into a smaller part of the next process. Refining and growing through generations of process. A cog as a end product for one, staring in the production of the next, who's end product was a tool in the next.
