    Wanted . . . new devices for handling mechanical handling equipment!
    Next May, the organizers of the 1960 MECHANICAL HANDLING EXHIBITION will be confronted with a greater problem than ever in bringing hundreds of exhibits into London's Earls Court and manipulating them into position in the 500,000 square feet of space which they will occupy during the ten-day run of the show.

    Size and weight of many mechanical handling devices have increased in proportion to their greater versatility and wider application. New labour-saving machines are appearing daily in factories, warehouses, docks - everywhere in the world where materials and goods have to be moved in the processes of manufacture, storage and despatch.

    Space for the 1960 Exhibition, to be held from 3 to 13 May, is rapidly being taken up by manufacturers of all types of mechanical handling devices and attendant apparatus.

    Exhibits range from small hydraulic valves and low-cost hand trucks - to massive wagon tipplers, electronic control equipment, and giant mobile cranes whose jibs barely clear the 120 ft. high ceiling of Earls Court.

    Full details about the Mechanical Handling Exhibition can be obtained from the Organizer, "Mechanical Handling", Dorset House, Stamford Street, S.E.1.
