As you may have noticed there’s a slightly new look to Automation magazine this month. As I mentioned in my previous column we have been in the process of redesigning the look and feel of all the magazines in the Connecting Industry portfolio, and it’s with great excitement that we are rolling-out the new-look style in the March issues.

Although we’ve been busy working on the new designs, the content of our March issue is just as insightful as always – containing all the usual engaging features, case studies and latest product news.

A key date for your diary over the next month or so is 8th-10th April, when the Drives & Controls show will be taking place at the NEC. The show is co-located with Plant & Asset Management and Air-Tech, together with the Fluid Power & Systems Exhibition, and the newly launched European Offshore & Energy Exhibition, as well as MACH, so the three days are set to be a busy and vibrant occasion.

We take a closer look at MACH in this issue (page 27-33) as well as featuring a dedicated supplement on what you’ll be able to see and do at Drives & Controls (centre pages).
