Visitors will be also able to gain valuable ideas and insights from the complimentary Focused on Industry seminars.  Topics range from “How to protect inventions and trademarks” to “Maintaining factory floors and driveways” to “The factory of the future: direct digital manufacture.”

One SouthMACH exhibitor, Anzor Fasteners on stand 42, specialises in stainless fasteners.  They have recently implemented a quality testing programme using some highly sophisticated X-Ray spectrometer equipment.
Design Energy on stand 30A not only develops great products but goes one step further by assisting with the “productionisation” of the final product. 
Forklift hire company, Forklifts NZ on stand 87, is establishing a stronger presence in the Christchurch and wider South Island markets. In April, the Southland-owned and operated company acquired Christchurch-based Loadlift Equipment and rebranded it under the Forklifts NZ umbrella. Manager Klaus Sulz says this is the company’s first serious foray into the Christchurch market, apart from a small company called Canterbury Forklifts that it already owns.












Roadrunner Manufacturing on stand 44 will have a fully operational Maxiem Abrasive Waterjet Machine on display. 
The team of Camfil Farr NZ and Viking Ironcraft on stand 41 at SouthMACH will show you the best solutions for your dust collection needs. 
Visitors must register to attend the show. SouthMACH and associated onsite events are free to attend. For further information, exhibiting enquiries, visitor registration and a list of current exhibitors, go to
