MWP Summit 2009 logoEngineering technologies company Renishaw will again be the main sponsor for the MWP Summit, ‘Sustainable Manufacturing in the 21st Century’, which will be held at the Advanced Manufacturing Park Technology Centre, Sheffield, UK, on Thursday 5th November 2009. The company will use the event to focus on products that help manufacturers to get the most from their machine tools and co-ordinate measuring machines, including touch probes, calibration systems and its new CMM retrofit service.

Best practice advice for manufacturing technology

The one-day conference and networking event is designed to appeal to directors, managers, technologists and production engineers working for SMEs in the manufacturing sector who should be aware of the critical issues affecting the future of their businesses, and the actions that can be taken now to deal with current difficult market conditions. Topics will include the opportunities and threats posed by new technology, practical advice on becoming a supplier within the aerospace sector, developing business strength during challenging economic times, designing for a low carbon world, plus best practice in applying and managing manufacturing technology.

Mike Excell, Editor of Metalworking Production magazineThe programme has been created by the Advanced Manufacturing Park (AMP) and the respected engineering journal ‘Metalworking Production’ whose editor Mike Excell (right) said, “Progressive UK manufacturing companies are succeeding in global markets by adopting high technology processes and modern, knowledge-based management philosophies. For companies who need to sustain their hard-won competitive advantages the MWP Summit, with its focus on sustainability in every sense, is established as a critical diary date on the advanced manufacturing technology calendar.”

The event will feature top level speakers from organisations such as Boeing, Gardner Aerospace, AESSEAL and the AMRC, plus senior managers from successful SMEs. There will also be demonstrations of ongoing projects at the AMP, plus an opportunity to visit the AMRC’s award-winning MANTRA technology demonstrator which incorporates a VR suite, and experience a ‘Skeleton’ class bobsleigh simulator.
