News: Leading manufacturers to visit Rotherham


Representatives from Airbus and AREVA visit Rotherham this month to discuss their plans for the future.

The Advanced Manufacturing Forum (AMF) meets in Rotherham this week to look at how aerospace manufacturers can satisfy customer and regulatory demands for ever-higher performance.

The AMF is the technology network for manufacturing businesses and run by the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing.

The regular AMF events cover a range of topics of relevance to manufacturing businesses, offering insight into current and emerging technologies and supply chain issues.

Held at the Knowledge Transfer Centre on the Advanced Manufacturing Park on July 5, the forum will see leading aircraft manufacturer, Airbus lead a morning of exclusive insight into the future technology demands of the global aerospace industry.

The success of Airbus' A320 NEO (New Engine Option) and Boeing' s 737 MAX has set extremely high new standards for commercial aircraft performance.

The event will examine how manufacturers and suppliers can make sure that they can consistently meet and exceed these demands.

On July 12, the focus switches from aerospace to wind power when representatives from multinational energy specialist, AREVA will discuss their offshore wind activities.

Since 2000, AREVA has been developing, planning and producing the M5000, the first 5 MW wind energy converter designed exclusively for large-scale offshore wind parks.

With a strong presence in the UK, AREVA is looking to capitalise upon the fast growing UK offshore wind sector.

The NAMTEC Manufacturing Forum is hosting a meet the buyer event with AREVA at the Knowledge Transfer Centre to ensure that local suppliers can get involved.

Organised by the National Metals Technology Centre (NAMTEC) in Rotherham, the Manufacturing Forum provides an unrivalled opportunity for members to explore new market and technology development opportunities in high growth sectors including Oil & Gas, Aerospace & Defence and Energy Generation.
