EDF Energy Touring Exhibition At Party Political Conferences

The modular, highly transportable EDF Energy Touring Exhibition, featuring a number of engaging interactives and streamlined versions of our larger displays, will be present at three upcoming Party Political Conferences. The exhibition has been present at trade shows, conventions, conferences and events since earlier this year.   The EDF Energy Touring Exhibition is a portable recreation of the displays and interactives we have made for the various EDF Energy visitor's centres around the country. While the Touring Exhibition has been sent along the length and breadth of the country, our seven permanent exhibitions have been experienced by thousands of members of the public. Nearly every member of staff contributed to these impressive pieces which involved our skills as metalworkers, electricians and engineers, involving CNC machining and traditional hand skills, as well as a keen understanding of human interaction and exhibition design.   The EDF Energy visitor's centres and touring exhibition have been regular fixtures…

Amalgam’s Models at DSEI show

Amalgam’s Models At DSEI Show

The DSEI 2013 defence and security exhibition begins on the 10th of September, and will continue until the 13th. The exhibition features over 1500 exhibitors from more than 50 countries, to some of whom we have recently provided our marine modelmaking services. More details on the models will be announced soon.   Amalgam Models have provided many models to the defence and security industries, largely as exhibition and marketing applications at global events such as DSEI. One such success is the BMT Mastiff, which includes cast rubber tyres and extremely high levels of detail. Other exhibition and 'event' models we have made for conferences and trade shows include the Seagen Tidal Turbine and the Asry-Centrax Powerbarge, both of which had to be built to withstand regular international touring.

PlanLoCaL Scale Model Gets An Update

Some years back, Amalgam created a four-baseboard modular scale model of a generic British urban area for the Centre for Sustainable Energy. The model has been back through our doors for touch ups and some fresh paint, but we've added a 1,044 Megawatt Solar Farm, an Anaerobic Digestion Plant, and some 1/1000 scale cows to provide the plant with, erm, fuel. Ultimately the model is designed to show a community the various renewable energy options available to them. It also allows them to consider whether a certain process is appropriate for their local economy, or what the visual impact would be on the surrounding countryside.  Amalgam have provided a range of models to the Centre for Sustainable Energy over the years, including our Wall Insulation models (of which we made 13 sets) , and the Energy Home, which shows how a modern family home can be made more energy efficient. Head to Our…
