MTA Press Releases
The MTA is forecasting an uncertain environment for the UK machine tool sector over the next year. At the MTA’s annual Forecast Seminar, held at the University of Warwick’s International Digital Laboratory, it was anticipated that 2012 will be a stronger year than 2011, but that the outlook for 2013 was uncertain.
The MACH Exhibition has come a long way since its origins as the International Engineering & Machinery Exhibition, held at Olympia in 1912. Over the past 100 years the event, organised by the MTA and its forerunners, has been an outstanding showcase for advances in manufacturing technology and so it is fitting that the centenary of the first show should be celebrated.
Natalie Seymour from Coundon School in Coventry and Uddhav Vaghela from Yarm School in Stockton-on-Tees , were announced as the winners of the Manufacturing Technology Association’s (MTA) Technology, Design and Innovation (TDI) Challenge 2012 at the judging ceremony that took place on Wednesday July 11.
