Good morning and welcome to this week’s Friday Brief.
With MACH 2018 getting closer, preparations are taking an increasingly concrete form. One way to make sure you’re prepared to get the best out of the exhibition is to attend the MACH 2018 Exhibitor Day on Friday the 3rd November at the NEC. You can find full details of what should be a brilliant event here http://www.machexhibition.com/why-exhibit/mach-exhibitor-day
Is there a little project sitting at the side of your desk that you’d really value getting done, but just don’t have the resource to get round to? The Institute for Manufacturing at Cambridge University are offering the services of some of their postgraduates to fill just such gaps; you can find out more below.
Elsewhere in academia, there’s news of a major event on 30th November in the Additive Manufacturing space being hosted by Imperial College, to which MTA members have kindly been invited. This week saw the opening of a new £35m Aerospace research centre at Cranfield, covering everything from air traffic management to intelligent automation.
There’s another event looking at Additive Manufacturing, on the 16th of January at Huddersfield University, organised by the Manufacturing Measurement Network.
Year 11 students will be able to learn about engineering, and particularly robotics, at a STEM day at the Manchester Museum of Science and Industry on Monday 13th November. The MTA is supporting the day which will engage students in an exciting computing, technology, engineering and maths challenge.
Fronius UK are hosting a warehouse efficiency event at their technology centre in Milton Keynes on the 21st of November. Read more below if you want to maximise energy savings in your operation.
Finally, we have mention of a book, Tragedy & Challenge, which may well chime with many of those who lived through the changes British manufacturing experienced in the 70’s and 80’s.
Have a good weekend.
