Subcon visitors discover the new reality of manufacturing – video highlights

At today’s The Engineer Conference at Subcon, Microsoft opened our eyes to augmented and virtual reality, while Roy Gandy, founder of British turntable manufacturer REGA Research, offered an infectious presentation that made us want to rush home and play our old vinyl.

Subcon is the UK’s only event dedicated to outsourced manufacturing. It serves all sectors and all processes – from machining, sheet metalworking, casting and forging, to plastic moulding, composites and electronics.

The Advanced Manufacturing Show covers every aspect of production technology. including machine tools, workholding and accessories, software, additive manufacturing and metrology.

The Engineer Design and Innovation Show offers everything a design engineer needs to create innovative new products – from CAD and simulation software to prototyping and components.

The Engineer Conference is always a great opportunity to find out about the disruptive technologies, exciting projects and inspiring companies at the heart of the UK’s engineering landscape and this year’s event is no exception.

Watch it all – and more – in our day two highlights video above.
