About this event

The presentation will include a description of the HVM Catapult and an overview of the 7 centres that make up the HVM Catapult. There will be a detailed discussion on MTC and achievements to date, including case studies of Reclaim, Sandwell and the Medical Implant – followed by a tour of the MTC facility.

The High Value Manufacturing Catapult was created in 2011 by the UK government to provide a stimulus for British manufacturing through a consortium of seven manufacturing technology centres which provide cross sector manufacturing and process technology support to SMEs and large multi-national industrial partners

The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) was established in 2010  with the objective of bridging the gap between academia and industry. Based in Ansty Park in Coventry, our purpose built facility opened in 2011. Our focus is to prove innovative manufacturing processes and technologies in an agile environment in partnership with industry, academia and other institutions. Our facility provides an unparalleled environment for the development and demonstration of new technologies on an industrial scale offering flexibility to our growing membership and our research partners.
