Southern Manufacturing & Electronics makes a welcome return to Farnborough from 8-10 February 2022.
The show’s eagerly-awaited revival comes as engineering firms across the country are getting back to business and keen to reinvigorate their order books.
Happily, many of the show’s regular participants seem to have weathered the turbulent conditions of the last 20 months and are now eager to pitch their wares at the UK’s longest-running and largest annual engineering show.
As in previous years, the show features an incredible array of high-tech automation, mechanical and electronics components, tooling, industrial hardware, business and subcontract services from all over the UK, continental Europe and beyond.
Automation and process efficiency has taken on a new sense of urgency as manufacturers strive to find ways to do more with less. Design & Automation Solutions will be demonstrating one solution on its stand at Southern 2022, using a MELFA ‘Assista’ Collaborative Robot, supplied by Mitsubishi Electric Automation Systems UK.
Energy saving solutions and a turnkey installation service of renewable energy and low carbon technologies will be showcased by Noble Green Energy. The company delivers a range of key low carbon technologies nationwide for high energy usage clients across a variety of sectors, including manufacturing, automotive, chemical, food/drink, printing and agriculture.
As processes become more connected, so too do their vulnerability to attack. Secure embedded memory products will be showcased by Nexus Industrial Memory. Its Flexxon’s X-PHY solid state drives (SSD) was selected by Lenovo for what are expected to be the world’s first ‘all-in-one’ AI cybersecurity laptops. There will be demonstrations to simulate cyber-attacks on the X-PHY as well as a range of Flexxon’s memory ICs, cards and modules.
OEM and component manufacturers exhibiting are many and varied. International distributors include the multi-national Transfer Multisort Elektrik, Telegartner and Turkey’s Ozdisan Elektronik. Interconnect specialists include Yamaichi, Coax Connectors and Selwyn Electronics.

TDK-Lambda UK will display two of its most recent power supply ranges; the UK-designed CUS400M and the latest additions to its popular Genesys+ programmable power supplies. ESI Technology will showcase its GS4400 pressure transmitter with RS-485 interface. New releases on display on the Midas Displays’ stand will include smart TFT displays with CAN bus interface, and RGB LCDs.
Subcontract expertise is also much in evidence, with everything from design and CEMS to precision engineering, fabrication, PCB production and inspection.
Expertise, too, is freely available via the show’s excellent and ever popular free seminar programme, which returns in a socially-distanced format for 2022. Topics tackled include reducing energy consumption, implementing effective SOPs, and lessons in efficiency and strategy from some of the world’s best-in-class businesses. A full list and pre-registration form can be found on the show’s website.
Comprehensive anti-infection measures will be in place throughout the event. Its modern design and filtered fresh air ventilation system helps makes Farnborough International Exhibition a comparatively low-risk setting. There is free car parking for 3,500 vehicles and the venue features a high standard of services such as free WiFi in the foyer area and on-site catering. A dedicated free shuttle bus service operates from both of Farnborough’s mainline railway stations directly to the event. Admission to the exhibition is free of charge.
