Automatic Fire Suppression Systems - Firetrace - News

The Firetrace team are excited to be attending MACH 2018 exhibition from 9th-13th April at the NEC in Birmingham.

Fire remains the most significant risk factor for engineering companies and with manufacturing growth at 30-year high never has it been more important to protect business critical machines.

Fire protection of CNC, EDM and CAM machines is crucial as there are many ways in which unwanted heat can be created during operation. Heavily used CNC and CAM machinery that are left unattended are particularly vulnerable as flammable lubricants and coolants increase the risk of fire. Not only is there a risk to these very expensive assets but also to premises and personnel. This is particularly prevalent with autonomous overnight operations.

Firetrace have the solution and will be showcasing it at the forthcoming MACH 2018 exhibition at the NEC. Not only will you be able to see the product demonstrated at their stand H20-17 but also on working machines at the STAR Micronics GB stand 520.

The Firetrace system has a simple, patented design and does not rely on electronics or power supplies. The system uses pneumatics and operates independently to the protected machine. The systems require minimal maintenance and have a 10 Year life. They can be installed on new machines or easily retrofitted to existing equipment. The Firetrace solution is accepted by most major insurance companies.                     

MACH is the outstanding showcase for advances in the manufacturing industry brought to you by the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA), a UK based trade association dealing specifically with engineering based manufacturing. It is a biennial exhibition which brings together all the best innovations and latest developments to come from the manufacturing technologies sectors under one roof.

Company director Tim Melton explains why attending the show is so important for Firetrace, “MACH 2018 is the ideal event to demonstrate how effectively and efficiently our unique Firetrace system can be used in manufacturing to reduce the risk of extensive fire damage caused by machinery setting on fire”

In 2016 over 600 companies exhibited attracting over 25,000 visitors from diverse sectors across the whole of the UK Manufacturing industry.
