Finding the best solution to new tooling requirements can be a daunting challenge, as can diagnosing current tooling problems. The advantage of the MACH exhibition has always been that a complete range of solutions is available to view all under one roof. But this year, exhibition organiser, the MTA has gone a stage further and is creating a special Tooling Clinic, which will attempt to resolve any tooling issues visitors to the exhibition may have.

The Tooling Clinic, being run by the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), will enable visitors to identify the solutions right for them through open discussion of the manufacturing challenges within their tooling applications, cutting strategies, parameter optimisation, virtual machining and other high value manufacturing methodologies and technologies.

Visitors can make an appointment to the clinic in advance, highlighting their specific challenges or identifying options from the list of discussion topics. Appointments can be booked at
