Drives & Controls Show

Since it was first held, more than two decades ago, the Drives & Controls Show has established itself as the leading UK event for motion engineering, power transmission and automation – the only exhibition dedicated to this vital sector of engineering and manufacturing. Every two years, over 350 of the leading suppliers of technologies such as variable speed drives, motors, robotics, sensors, machine vision, programmable controllers, pneumatics, mechanical power transmission equipment (including gearboxes, chains, belts, bearings, brakes, clutches and couplings) and test & measurement products, gather in Birmingham at the cluster of events that includes Drives & Controls to exhibit and demonstrate their latest developments. The show also attracts companies offering services such as machine safety engineering, training, repairs and maintenance. In 2018 a new show will be launched alongside Drives & Controls called Smart Industry Expo and featuring Industry 4.0. 2016 saw the launch of the Live Robotic Demo Area, which proved highly successful and is set to double in size for 2018. The number of exhibitors grew substantially in 2016 and a further increase in exhibitors and visitors is expected in 2018.
