The Next Generation of Digital Technology at the Manufacturing Technology Centre

This event will give you an understanding of what augmented reality and mixed reality is, and where it can and should be applied.

Join us to explore how ‘augmented reality’ and ‘mixed reality’ can be involved in assembly, design engineering and service applications. Enjoy a tour of the world class Manufacturing Technology Centre and their digital projects, a demonstration of Microsoft HoloLens and a debate of how ‘AR’ and ‘MR’ will affect the UK workforce, productivity and its role in the Industrial Strategy.

The digital agenda is fast moving and UK manufacturers need to get involved, keep informed and invest in the right technology. Not all technology is right for all applications, this event will allow delegates the opportunity to be inspired of the application of such technology, understand the benefits of such investments and debate the topic with peers.
