Southern Manufacturing and Electronics 2023 Exhibition


Captec & Cove to Exhibit at 2023’s Southern Manufacturing and Electronics Exhibition.

We are pleased to announce that Captec will be exhibiting with our associated group company Cove, at the Southern Manufacturing and Electronics 2023 Exhibition. The event will be held at Farnborough International Exhibition Centre from the 7th to the 9th of February, and you will find us at stand number N150.

Southern Manufacturing and Electronics is the UK’s largest and longest-running annual engineering exhibition. Situated at the birthplace and epicentre of the UK’s massive £20bn+ aerospace and defence industry, Hall 1 is set to become one of the most important showcases for UK manufacturing expertise and the diverse supply chain that supports it. The show hosts a significant variety of exhibiting companies, covering the entire spectrum of engineering enterprises from production hardware to components and fabrication to high-tech electronics.

We will update this page weekly with various products and capabilities we will showcase at the event, so please look out for our posts.

Fabrication & Integration – Sub-Systems

As mentioned, we will be exhibiting at this event with our associated group company, Cove. For those unfamiliar, Cove’s capabilities complement Captec’s and play a key role in our group’s end-to-end proposition. It has a long-established pedigree spanning almost six decades in precision metalwork fabrication and finishing. This is supplemented with electromechanical sub-system integration for a complete build-to-print service to any exacting industry or certification standard for demanding sectors such as defence, aerospace and medical equipment. Cove also engineers cabinets and enclosures for challenging industrial environments, with in-house design teams to assist with mechanical design and electrical schematics. Along with providing production engineering expertise to take your design through from prototype to full production build standard. At the exhibition, a cross-section of samples will be showcased on our stand N150.

Cove is based locally in Farnborough, only 5 mins from the exhibition, so we are inviting factory drop-ins for those interested to explore further and combine the show with a visit. Please contact Sharda Hayes on 01489 866 032 or to book a visit. There will be sandwiches and refreshments available, so please do join us.

Smart Edge & IoT – Electronics Hardware & Embedded Firmware

While at the event, we will illustrate some of our electronic hardware and embedded firmware offerings for IoT and Smart Edge applications.

Captec has considerable experience within the Smart Edge and IoT segment, offering services throughout the product development cycle, including custom electronics and firmware design, testing and certification, especially for low-power and wireless communication. In addition, we have a deep knowledge of specialised electronics for sensor signal processing and real-time low-power embedded systems, backed by field-proven reference projects involving 1000s of installed IoT remote monitoring devices and billions of measurements.

We have also developed a core stack of hardware designs and firmware to enable rapid development of IoT applications using pre-existing modules from our library, meaning development typically requiring months can be reduced to days. Visit us at the show to discuss your application and learn more about how we can expedite the development cycle.

This exhibition is a key event for any OEM or System Integrator looking for established supply chain partners. It is well worth attending, and we look forward to seeing you there. In the meantime, if you would like more information about the event, visit or click here to register.
