Why Accu Has Partnered With Labman To Deliver FightFest

Over the years we have had a keen focus on supporting the talents of students and young engineers who are on their path to drive innovation forward.

From the recent announcement of our 'Building Tomorrow’ Scholarship to the continued support we offer to many university Formula teams, Accu is committed to investing in the engineers of the future.

Just like other student-focused competitions, such as Formula Student, FightFest creates an exciting and competitive environment that encourages the next generation of engineers to put their skills to the test. 

As the event welcomes both student and non-student teams, FightFest also presents a unique opportunity for aspiring engineers to immerse themselves in a dynamic learning environment where they can take invaluable insights from professional combat robotics teams.

By supporting FightFest, we aim to drive excitement and enthusiasm for engineering and robotics, inspiring more students to explore these fields and become the leaders of future advancement in the industry. 

As a long time customer of Accu, we are delighted to partner with Labman Automation in what continues to be a truly thrilling event.

Just like many of their robotics and custom automation applications, the bulletproof FightFest arena is purpose-built by Labman using Accu’s precision fasteners. 

In this partnership, Accu will not only provide financial support through sponsorship, but also help to grow the competition and build awareness, enabling FightFest to become bigger and better each year. 

With the hopes of being fully immersed in the thrill of this extraordinary event, this year our involvement extends beyond mere sponsorship! 

As a testament to our passion for engineering, we are delighted to share that Accu will once again be competing with our very own combat robot, meticulously designed by Patrick, Rob and Nick, our very own innovation engineers.

What’s New With FightFest?

This year, the field of competitors for FightFest is larger than ever before, with 16 student teams and 18 non-student teams competing for the epic title of FightFest Champion.

Ed Hodges, Project Leader at Labman reflected on their plans for the upcoming event, “For FightFest 2023 we are really focused on the in-person experience and trying to maximise the fun and engaging atmosphere at the event, whilst also building upon the awesome competition we’ve seen in previous years.”

With the aim of bringing the event closer to students, FightFest has now become integrated with university engineering courses, including those at the University of Sheffield and the University of Bolton. 

Encouraging their young engineers to take on the challenge, these universities have incorporated FightFest into their robotics modules which have students design and build an entry to compete in the event.  

In keeping with the in-person experience, FightFest 2023 will now offer camping throughout the weekend for competitors, volunteers and professionals alike. 

To further enhance the camaraderie and networking opportunities, Labman is also hosting a social event encouraging all those in attendance to enjoy handmade pizza and drinks from a local brewery.
