Friday Brief

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

It has been a busy week for the Association and our members who have been exhibiting at EMO 2017 in Hannover. There will be a full report of the exhibition next week, as we’re are still in Germany until the show closes tomorrow.

But to give you a little flavour of what’s been going on, the MTA team held a press conference for European journalists at the show to encourage more international visitors to MACH 2018. MTA CEO James Selka and Statistician Geoff Noon delivered a talk to The International General Managers at EMO discussing BREXIT and the UK market. The talk was well attended and well received by the Associations in attendance.

If you are experiencing Industry 4.0 Fatigue, are fed up with attending events that "worship the problem" and want to just get on and boost your productivity and innovation, then join the Future of British Manufacturing Initiative. The Future of British Manufacturing Initiative- Free Assessment Tool for MTA Members, see below for more details.

The Design and Technology Association is looking for high profile candidates to join the board of this prestigious organisation and contribute to its work shaping design, engineering and technology education in the UK and helping to inspire more young people to develop industry-critical skills.

Star GB’s 2017 Open House will give engineers an insight into the latest equipment and software solutions in sliding head machining. Visitors will have the opportunity to witness live demonstrations on a comprehensive range of Star models including their flagship ST-38 machine. Find out how to attend in the story below.

Following the success of the Export Control Symposium in London earlier this year, the Export Control Joint Unit in the Department for International Trade has arranged a further one-day symposium focusing on requirements for export controls and guidance on when licences are required.

CECIMO latest data shows that the European production of machine tools is expected to reach 25.2 billion euro in 2017, registering an annual growth rate of 4%. For the full story see the feature within the Brief.

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.

Star GB’s 2017 Open House will give engineers an insight into the latest equipment and software solutions in sliding head machining.

Throughout the 3 days visitors will have the opportunity to witness live demonstrations on a comprehensive range of Star models including our flagship ST-38 machine. In addition we will be demonstrating our High Frequency Turning software (HFT) on several machines. This technology offers a solution when machining challenging materials and greatly improves swarf management thus increasing machine efficiency.

CECIMO EXPECTS TO REACH MORE THAN 25 BILLION EURO OF MACHINE TOOLS PRODUCTION AND CONTRIBUTE TO THE NEW EU INDUSTRIAL POLICY STRATEGY

CECIMO EXPECTS TO REACH MORE THAN 25 BILLION EURO OF MACHINE TOOLS PRODUCTION AND CONTRIBUTE TO THE NEW EU INDUSTRIAL POLICY STRATEGY

CECIMO latest data shows that the European production of machine tools is expected to reach 25.2 billion euro in 2017, registering an annual growth rate of 4%. While 2016 saw a notable decline of global machine tool production from 68.9 billion euro to 64.2 billion euro (-7.9%), CECIMO members were not affected by this downturn and kept its volume at 24.4 billion euro, therefore growing their global market shares. CECIMO believes that the EU should do more to deliver its promises for a stronger and more competitive industry.
