Description

The SMI has organised a tour of the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) in Coventry on 20 September 2018. All SMI members are invited; This visit will be especially informative for your R&D, manufacturing and operations teams.

The MTC was established in 2010 with the objective of bridging the gap between academia and industry. This is often referred to as ‘the valley of death’. They provide manufacturing solutions for customers large and small, across sectors as diverse as automotive, aerospace, rail, marine, food & drink, electronics, oil & gas and defence. They help companies manufacture faster, at a consistently higher quality and lower cost. 3D printing is a speciality of the MTC.

The UK has 1 of these centres – Germany has 60 – all UK manufacturers should know about it.
