Small one day event at Coventry's Ricoh Stadium with diverse stands
Great to see Peter O'Hara and Simon Kampa CEO of SENSEYE with pole position stand just inside the door
This show location is local to Uptime Consultant so we can be there or back home within 10 minutes so I always attend if I'm not busy with a client.
First stand through the door was Senseye with these two chaps who I have collaborated with in the past and plan to do some more in the near future.
If you are interested in what the future of Condition Monitoring will look like I thoroughly recommend you go take a look at what these guys are doing, it not only works, it is in service now saving companies time and money.
This particular Food & Drink show has been around for a couple of years but it's quite strange with a broad range of speakers in eight small presenting locations covering everything from Process to Engineering and everything in-between, over a hundred presentations of 15 mins long is maybe a little too much?
There's an area that I would say is Utilities including Water, Power, HVAC and all that important stuff.
Some equipment suppliers, one lubrication stand from Kluber who are a main player in F&B, pumps, auto lubrication.
Had a good chat to Steve Worth of Kluber to help me out with a special process application, and that's the beauty of shows that I get to put a face to a name and start to connect.. you can't do that on a phone or on-line.
Another excellent company who helped me when I started Uptime Consultant is EMS Cognito who always have a Jenga game going on, I passed on this challenge but this guy did well.. look at the whole thing balancing on one block down at the bottom!
He did it as well, got that block out and placed it on the top, no problem.
Richard Kelly the MD is the dapper chap on the far left.
Interesting product launch from Bijur Delimon UK that can be seen here in the centre of the shot, the CLP Auto Lube. CLP stands for Cartridge Lubrication Pump I believe.
It's advertised as a plug and play auto lubricating device that takes any standard cartridge instead of the larger volume vessels that can be a problem in my experience with replenishing and the carrier splitting from the lube.
Stuart the application on the right in the white shirt was telling me how versatile and affordable this unit is, below £1,000 for an installation was quoted.
Not much more to say really, it works for me as I was able to catch up, make new connections and it got me out of the office for a morning.
