Learning and Development Zone

As well as showcasing new technologies and the latest products, MACH 2016 also plays host to the next generation of engineering talent. Our dedicated Learning and Development Zone is the base for student visitors as well as some key exhibits and a showcase of Manufacturing Technologies Association Members' (MTA) apprentices and graduates at work. We are delighted that Sandvik Coromant are once again sponsoring the zone and showing their support for bringing young people into the industry.

Kim Olander, Marketing Manager, commented "Sandvik Coromant are once again delighted to be sponsoring the Learning and Development Zone. We believe that young people and talent within the industry is just as key as showcasing innovative products and services. We believe the Zone is an important opportunity to display the work of our industry at such a high profile event".

As well as Sandvik Coromant the Learning and Development Zone also features The University of Sheffield’s Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with MANTRA, their specially customised ‘MANufacturing TRAnsporter’.

The 14m HGV is designed to give aspiring young engineers hands-on experience with the AMRC’s cutting-edge technologies. With apprentices and staff from the AMRC and MTC on-hand to answer questions, showing the student visitors just what they could achieve with a career in engineering.

The Zone is situated in Hall 4 and features other key exhibits from the Bloodhound Supersonic Car and The Ministry of Defence. So what are you waiting for go and find out how rewarding a career in engineering can be.
