Tackling Future Challenges: How businesses can work together towards a better future

Silverstone Technology Cluster

28th July 2022

The Silverstone Technology Cluster (STC) held their Tackling Future Challenges, Digital & Advanced Manufacturing Special Interest Group Event on Thursday 28th July and teamed up with their friends at the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC). This exclusive joint event brought together leading OEMs and SMEs in a bid to start an exciting conversation about the future of manufacturing and technology.

The event prompted insightful group discussions around some of the most pertinent challenges faced by the industry today, including Net Zero Transport, Net Zero Manufacturing, and Improving Systems Resilience.

As part of the event, Siemens, Omron, Hexagon and BAE Systems led in-depth discussions with existing STC members around skills gaps and future skills, productivity improvements, new digital technologies, emerging manufacturing processes and industrial automation, amongst other topics. The bespoke sessions enabled new connections between OEMs and smaller businesses who could offer innovative solutions and ideas towards a more sustainable and successful future.

The event also included a special tour of the MTC workshop, where guests were able to see some of the newest technology available across all sectors, including construction, robotics and autonomous systems, additive and digital manufacturing, and modelling and simulation.

Our thanks go to our hosts, the Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) who helped us deliver this event, bringing leading OEMs and STC members together to share knowledge, best practice, expertise and of course the opportunity to collaborate.

We also value and appreciate the support our expert panellists:

·    Alan Norbury – Siemens

·    Shaun Cross – Omron

·    David Brown and Tim Gears – Hexagon
