Sustainability is an important issue in manufacturing and all its sectors, including automotive. While this industry is not renowned for being the most sustainable, there are many current and upcoming measures that the UK – as well as the rest of the world – are taking to reduce its carbon footprint.
Industry 4.0 offers incredible potential for improving operations and driving business growth in the manufacturing industry. As a new phase in the Industrial Revolution, Industry 4.0 focuses on automation, interconnectivity and real-time data.
Springs are everywhere. They are used in a variety of industries, from engineering and automotive to aerospace and retail, and the different types of springs that can be manufactured are almost as diverse as their uses – the same is true of the materials that springs are made of.
The subject of digital transformation has become increasingly more important in the past few years. The UK manufacturing industry can benefit greatly from advanced technology, as it can lead to a boost in productivity and to a reduction in time to market, for instance.
It’s no secret that the skills gap in manufacturing has been an ever-increasing issue over the past few years. It has been said that more must be done to address this skills gap, with older and more skilled workers coming up to the age of retirement and just a small pool of younger workers ready… Continue Reading …
The manufacturing industry is always changing and is characterised by rapid technological advancements. These constant changes and technological possibilities drive the sector forward. Even with the uncertainty of Brexit, the current budget is designed to strengthen the country’s commitment to scientific R&D.
