Precision Ceramics On Show An Extended Exhibition Programme For 2014 …
Despite the demise of many industry-based exhibitions in the United Kingdom and further afield, Precision Ceramics continues to attend at least two major events each year, generally one in Europe and the other in the USA.
For the first time this year we will be extending our programme with a presence at two major exhibitions and one international symposium.
Precision Ceramics On Show begins in March at the 2014 FlAVS/FSM Joint Symposium at the University of Central Florida in Orlando.
The Symposium is jointly sponsored by the Florida Chapter of the American Vacuum Society (FIAVS) and the Florida Society for Microscopy (FSM) and consists of a plenary lecture, technical sessions with invited and contributed presentations, a poster session including a student poster competition and an equipment exhibition for companies to display surface analytical, vacuum, microscopy, thin film and microelectronic equipment.
As well as attending the symposium, key members of the PC USA Florida-based team will manage a small exhibition of technical ceramic components for vacuum applications.
In April, we will be returning to Hannover for the annual trade and industry fair now aptly named ‘Hannover Messe’. Precision Ceramics first exhibited in Hannover back in 2005 and we have returned five times since.
With its clear focus on core technologies and services that enable industrial production, innovation and efficiency, the annual exhibition is valued by companies and organisations around the globe as the world’s premier industrial technology showcase.
From 7th to 11th April, Precision Ceramics will again exhibit as part of the Birmingham Chamber of Commerce Group, sponsored by UK Trade & Investment.
Our stand will have a prime corner position in Hall 4 where the very latest developments in technical ceramic engineering will be on show as well as an extensive array of Alumina, Boron Nitride, Macor Machinable Glass Ceramic, Silicon Carbide, Silicon Nitride, Shapal Hi-M Soft and Zirconia components for a wide range of applications.

The opening day of last year’s event also witnessed the signing of a unique trade agreement between the German and British Governments, completed on the bonnet of a Union-Jack- bedecked Mini Cooper. Before returning to Berlin, Simon McDonald CMG, the British Ambassador to Germany, made an impromptu tour of all the UK Exhibitors in Hall 4 including Precision Ceramics.
Our final presence of the year will be at the annual AVS 61st International Symposium and Exhibition, this year from 9th to 14th November in Baltimore, USA.
The AVS International Symposium and Exhibition has been developed to address cutting-edge issues associated with vacuum science and technology in both the research and manufacturing communities. The Symposium is a week-long forum for science and technology exchange featuring papers from technical divisions and technology groups and topical conferences on emerging technologies.

The equipment exhibition is one of the largest in the world and provides an excellent opportunity to view the latest products and services offered by over 200 participating companies. More than 3,000 scientists and engineers gather from around the world to attend.
In addition, consultants, engineers, biologists, chemists, physicists, purchasing professionals, scientists, students, technicians, and exhibitor staff working or studying in the fields of applied surface science, biomaterial interfaces, electronic materials and processing, magnetic interfaces, manufacturing science, MEMS/NEMS, nanoscience, thin film, plasma science, surface science, or vacuum technology will be in attendance.
Commenting on Precision Ceramics On Show in 2014, Sales Director, Geoff Randle, comments…
“This year’s exhibition programme provides us with the perfect opportunity to share our extensive knowledge of technical ceramics with both European and US audiences.
Our presence at international trade shows is a further opportunity to highlight the in-house expertise we have established and led to a wider global understanding of our ability to solve technical problems and provide a total ceramics solution.”
If you’re in Orlando, Hannover or Baltimore in March, April or November, why not call in and say hello?
