National Manufacturing Week 2016 has begun with a buzz at Sydney Showground, with a standout  Welding Technology Product Zone showcasing innovations from welding's leading names. Kemppi, Fein, Innovative Welding, Ensitech, Klingspor, Metal Science Technologies, Weldbrush and more are participating in NMW to showcase the latest welding products, accessories and systems.

Ensitech, the inventor and manufacturer of the TIG Brush system is showcasing - for the first time - a unique fluid delivery system that puts an end to 'dipping' processes for stainless steel weld cleaning and passivation. Ensitech's Esther Sokoya comments, "This new system is clean, efficient and effective: and judging by the feedback we've received so far, it's a very welcome development."

Also exhibiting in NMW's Welding Technology zone is Fein & Tyrolit, providing rolling demonstrations of the company's advances in metal polishing equipment and techniques, alongside Kemppi who is demonstrating its latest technologies and solutions.

Kemppi's Regional Sales Manager, David Coleman comments, "We've been on our feet all day, showing customers our entire range, especially our Pulse FastMig and our new automation products. Kemppi has brought a wide range of products to NMW, from basic machines to the latest technologies and solutions. It's your best opportunity this year to see the latest technology in action!"

NMW is also 'home' to organisations  delivering real, practical assistance for business innovation. The NSW Dept of Industry has a team of advisors on Stand 2620 outlining assistance programs, including - in addition to grants and incentives - helping direct you to potential industry partners. KPMG is also participating in the event, with its consultants sharing ideas for business growth.

Robby Clark, Exhibition Director for NMW comments that  National Manufacturing Week is clearly providing a meeting ground for businesses seeking to innovate.

"All around NMW, visitors and exhibitors alike are looking for and talking about new ideas, business processes and other opportunities to grow.  We're really proud that NMW is helping to spark these conversations through the product showcase, demonstrations and the very topical NMW Seminar Theatre program," Clark says.

Thursday's session schedule features three separate speakers - including from The Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre, Western Sydney University and AusIndustry - sharing strategies for growth by engaging Australia's research capabilities. Friday, the final day of NMW, will see sessions focusing on business management tools, as well as new insights into industrial marketing trends and strategies for marketing your business' brand.

NMW's practical demonstrations program will continue: with Kemppi and Fein & Tyrolit's ongoing demonstrations augmented by special demonstrations from Innovative Welding (at 1.30pm Thursday 12 May) and Ensitech (10.45am on Friday 13 May).

NMW - held in Sydney just once every two years - ends at 4pm tomorrow, Friday 13 May. Don't miss out! - and join your peers in industry this week at the Sydney Showground, Sydney Olympic Park.
