Friday Brief

Good morning and welcome to this week’s Friday Brief.

With Brexit the biggest political issue on the horizon, the future of the UK’s relationship with the EU is a priority for the MTA. With this in mind the Association has helped form the EURIS task force, a group of Trade Associations acting as a representative body providing industry views – particularly in respect of Standards and Regulation - to the UK government on the potential impacts of Brexit. Accordingly we would like to ask you complete a short survey that will help to build an industry position on Brexit to feedback to UK government.

The link to the online survey is here: https://www.surveymonkey.co.uk/r/EURISaug17.

MTA Head of Events, James Fudge, visited Innoprom in Yekaterinburg, Russia this week alongside our Russian Representative Dr Igor Bazhenov. In conjunction with the Department for International Trade the MTA held a UK briefing for members of the Russian Office and facilitated a network session afterwards. If you would like more information about the Russian market, please contact the James at jfudge@mta.org.uk.

The MTA are supporting an event at the MTC on 30th & 31st October on digital manufacturing. The question to be addressed will be: “Is your business ready to take full advantage and be at the forefront of this exciting new era?” Find out how you can attend this event and take advantage of the MTA member’s discount.

MTA members Engineering Technology Group (ETG) are tackling the skills gap head on after making a £6m commitment to developing a network of Technical Academies. The project also features other MTA member companies who are supporting ETG’s Technical Academies. There are many MTA members involved in partnering this project including Blum, Bott, Filtermist, Guhring, Hyfore, LNS, Nikken and WNT.

We have some new members of the MTA this week and we would like to say a big welcome to Cambridge Numerical Control, Datron Technology Ltd and Thread Rolling Technology Ltd. You can find out more about these new members below.

The University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) is the latest organisation to become a regional partner of digital industries organisation Sheffield Digital. The partnership will enable the AMRC to work with Sheffield Digital on activities that will help to bring the region’s advanced manufacturing and digital businesses closer together.

This has been a light week for Economic News around our industry, but we have some data from CECIMO which is available for MTA members.

That’s all for this week we’ll be back next Friday with more industry news, until then have a great weekend from everyone at the MTA.

ECONOMIC DATA THIS WEEK

ECONOMIC DATA THIS WEEK

CECIMO, the European Federation for machine tool manufacturers associations has published a new edition of its Statistical Toolbox;  this includes the usual round-up of general economic data around our industry, as well as updates on orders, production and trade data for machine tools in Europe.

The latter came from the bi-annual CECIMO General Assembly and we also have available the data file from that meeting in excel format for ease of reference.
