We currently have a couple of surveys running in the field at the moment. The MTA Business Survey for September was launched yesterday and we would encourage all members to participate in this so we get a clear picture of the recovery (or not as the case may be). There is an on-line form available at www.mta.org.uk/mta-business-survey-sep20 or if you would prefer a word version, please contact Geoff Noon at MTA (e-mail: firstname.lastname@example.org).
We also recently launched a new bi-annual survey of the Additive Manufacturing (AM) sector in Europe. This is being coordinated by CECIMO (the European Association of the Machine Tool Industries and related Manufacturing Technologies) with MTA, working with AM-UK, responsible for the UK data collection. If you have any involvement in AM activity, be it through supplying machines or material, as a user or in some other capacity (including research or consultancy), then please take a look at the survey which is available at www.mta.org.uk/additive-manufacturing-trend-survey - again a word document version is available from Geoff Noon if you prefer that format.
