People got a glimpse of the future of high-tech manufacturing at a special event put together by the Coventry-based Manufacturing Technology Centre and the Satellite Applications Catapult.
The Oxfordshire Future Manufacturing Roadshow on the Science and Innovation Campus at Harwell demonstrated cutting edge manufacturing technologies in the space, energy, healthtec and general manufacturing sectors.
Visitors to the event saw demonstrations of some of the most cutting-edge technologies available to manufacturers, introducing technologies developed by the MTC, the Satellite Applications Catapult and their partners.
The event aimed to give businesses an understanding of how technology could be rolled out to increase competitiveness, upscale production, and improve productivity.
Chris Dunkley also said the event offered technological insights to many of the challenges facing the UK manufacturing industry.
Demonstrators showed off the latest in artificial intelligence, automation and robotics, including advanced robotic handling for hazardous materials, decision-making robotics, advanced lasers, data handling and zero carbon manufacturing using sustainable power.
The event was held in the Satellite Applications Catapult building at Harwell, near Didcot. As well as the live event it was possible to access the event virtually via a streaming platform.
