Good morning and welcome to this week’s Friday Brief.
Last week the MTA’s Technical team attended the EUROPM 2019 congress and exhibition in Maastricht. We have a full report on what was on show below.
One EMO might have just finished but plans for the next edition in Milan are well underway. We have details on how you can exhibit and how you can get an early bird rate on booking within the Brief. EMO Milan takes place from October 4th to 9th 2021.
Smart Factory Expo takes place on 14th – 15th November at the Exhibition Centre in Liverpool, if you are interested in attending, we have details on how you can secure your free pass to the event.
Quick-fire validation testing by engineers at the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) helped put the UK’s largest manufacturer of magnetic material on the right path in finding a robot for automating some production processes.
On Tuesday 10th December 2019, at Factory 2050, Sheffield the University of Sheffield, Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre and Faculty of Engineering will host a Digital Twin Research Workshop. If this is something that interests you we have full details on how to attend the event below.
Do you need to get an idea of where in the country your customers are located? The ONS analysis of their business register that shows the numbers of companies by activity, size and location might be of use to you. There is more detail in the article below. Also, this week, members can access the latest notification about recipients of regional grants in Scotland (the only part of the UK to have a proper scheme at the moment) via the link to this in the article below.
Also, don’t forget that the documents and presentations from our Forecast Seminar are available for all MTA members to download from our web-site at https://www.mta.org.uk/members-area/mta-forecast-documents; as this is a valued member service, you will need your username and password to access these files.
Thanks for reading, we’ll be back next Friday with more industry news and views, until then have a great weekend, from everyone at the MTA.
