The recent Drives & Controls exhibition which took place at the Birmingham NEC from the 8th-10th April, proved to be a bustling event that covered the latest in mechanical power transmission, motion control and automation.

Being co-located with complementary shows Plant & Asset Management and Air-Tech, together with the Fluid Power & Systems Exhibition, the European Offshore & Energy Exhibition, as well as MACH, a high number of visitors came through the doors over the course of the show.

As for this month’s issue, regulations and legislation have made machine safety an even more vital element of plant operations  than ever before. With this in mind our latest supplement this month focuses on the latest from this vital industry sector.
