Win an iPad with SMC Pneumatics

30 April 2012

SMC Pneumatics will be holding a draw for the New iPad at Appetite for Engineering at the Hinckley Island Hotel. All pre-registration delegates will have the opportunity to win.

SMC has become one of several top names in the manufacturing industry that will participate in Appetite for Engineering.

Said Steve Bangs, MD of SMC Pneumatics (UK): "It was a real honour for SMC to be included in Forbes' magazine's list of the world's top 100 most innovative companies recently - so what better place to showcase how we can help other forward-thinking manufacturers than at the 'Appetite for Engineering' event. Because it's a forum for sharing new ideas, the companies attending will be there because like us, they have an interest in innovation.

"SMC has a team which partners a range of industries to help us understand their needs, and that includes a specific focus on the food and drink sector. So at 'Appetite for Engineering' we'll be showing some of our most innovative products that we know can help companies in this sector improve their manufacturing efficiency, output and profitability. ''
