Engineering Materials Live exhibitor introduces new, ‘green’ graphene

Engineering Materials Live exhibitor Goodfellow has introduced an ultra-pure “green” graphene material, which is guaranteed metal-free and therefore uniquely suitable for use in metal-sensitive processes and applications. The graphene is produced by means of a highly scalable process that involves breaking methane gas (CH4), into hydrogen and elemental carbon atoms in a plasma reactor. The carbon atoms are then recombined into graphene sheets in the hydrogen atmosphere. Elapsed time from the methane gas entering the plasma reactor to the point when graphene is formed is quick - typically less than a second. The speed and cost effectiveness of this ‘green’ mass production method promises to make graphene readily available to a wide range of industries with a minimal impact on the environment.   Read More


Superior plastics ring a bell at Engineering Materials Live event

See this unique E-type at Engineering Materials Live

The Jaguar E-type was introduced in March 1961 and promised a top speed of 150mph. John Coombs was a successful racing driver in the 1940s and ’50s and his family business included a thriving Jaguar dealership. He also managed a race team, and many famous drivers competed for him, including a certain Graham Hill. Coombs’ regular customers were able to buy Jaguar road cars that had engines and suspension specially tuned by him, and this particular car is thought to be the only surviving E-type which Coombs had prepared.   Read More

Engineering Materials Live exhibitor gets the measure of assembly

Electronics assembly requires high accuracy for parts with miniature dimensions. Yet concurrently, the production of electronic sub-assemblies and components also requires high speed, with processes that must deliver the highest quality: so, it is perhaps unsurprising that many production steps in the electronics assembly arena have become highly automated.   Read More

Advances in e-motor technology to headline at Engineering Materials Live exhibition, March 2020

Located adjacent to the world famous JLR plant at Gaydon in Warwickshire, the British Motor Museum plays host to an interesting exhibition on March 12th 2020, when the Engineering Solutions Live event takes place. Engineering Solutions Live is now the umbrella name for Engineering Materials Live, FAST Live, PCB Design and Manufacture Live and Making Measurement Matter. One of the key exhibitors at the event is using the opportunity to showcase many of its materials which have been specifically designed for use in electric motors, including the types of motor found in the latest generation of electric cars.  Read More


See it at FAST Live March 12th 2020: the Austin Allegro sectioned car

The Austin Allegro, perhaps unfairly known by some during its day as the “All Aggro”, was introduced in 1973 to replace the best-selling Austin/Morris 1100/1300 model range, a good number of which may still be seen on our roads, or beside them as the case may be…..  Read More
