Sandvik Coromant Supports the E&D Zone for the Fourth Time

As well as being the UK’s premier manufacturing technologies showcase, MACH 2018 plays host to an Education & Development (E&D) Zone specifically designed for students aged 11-19. The E&D Zone will bring together some the leading advanced engineering companies and educational institutions from across the UK, with the aim to shine a light on the vocational education and training that is imperative to closing the skills gap around the world.

MACH 2018 is excited to announce that world leading aircraft landing and braking systems company Safran Landing Systems (ex-Messier-Bugatti-Dowty) will be at next year’s exhibition.

After, successful exhibits at MACH 2014 and 2016, Safran Landing Systems will once again provide an Original Equipment Manufacturer (OEM) exhibit, at the UK’s premier manufacturing technologies showcase.

The final of this year’s national Technology, Design and Innovation (TDI) Challenge took place on Wednesday 5th July at Yamakazi Mazak’s headquarters in Worcester.

The finalists for this year’s Technology, Design and Innovation (TDI) Challenge have been announced.

The prestigious competition enables talented young people to showcase their work and helps them to understand the sophistication and dynamism of advanced manufacturing.

Manufacturing Technologies Association CEO James Selka used his speech at the Stuttgart Moulding Expo to deliver an upbeat message to European counterparts on Brexit and doing business in the UK.

Mr Selka emphasised that “the UK are open for business” and explain the background as to why the UK made this historic decision last June.

The speech was delivered at the European Tooling Platform seminar, which was located at the ISTMA Lounge at the Moulding Expo on 31st May 2017.

MTA CEO James Selka used his key note speech at the National Manufacturing Debate (NMB) hosted by Cranfield University to highlight the importance of Industry collaboration in tackling the skills gap.

The NMB is an annual event hosted by Cranfield University and took place on 24th May. The event brings together manufacturing professionals from a range of sectors to discuss and debate current challenges in the industry as well as encourage networking and collaboration across manufacturing to enable continued and long-term growth.

Sales for MACH 2018 are being described as “a very encouraging sign for the industry’” by MTA CEO James Selka. Over 75% of the exhibition’s space has already been sold, with just under a year to go before the show opens.

Engineering and manufacturing companies are being urged exploit the untapped value in their intellectual property to avoid losing money on lost designs, systems and patents, and create new revenues, says the Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA).

Each year millions of pounds in IPR – intellectual property rights – are being neglected by the UK’s engineering sector, because companies do not understand these rights and the IP wrapped up in their designs and processes, the leading manufacturing technology business group says.

The Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) has announced that Lloyds Bank Commercial Banking is to be, once again, the headline sponsor of the largest event of its kind in the UK – MACH 2018 – which brings together all the best innovation and technology for a wide range of manufacturing sectors under one roof.

This is the fourth time Lloyds Bank has sponsored MACH, further strengthening a long term relationship between the bank and the MTA, the organisers of the event. MACH takes place every two years and in 2016 attracted over 25,000 visitors.
