Beckhoff Automation Ltd. has become a member of the Manufacturing Technology Centre, an organisation created to prove and showcase innovative manufacturing processes and technologies in partnership with industry, academia and other institutions.

Nominated for membership by the MTC's Intelligent Automation group, Beckhoff is recognised as having innovative automation technology that other automation companies simply cannot match. Continuous development of innovative products and solutions - using PC-based control technology - has been the basis for continued success at Beckhoff. Indeed, its automation solutions have transformed the industrial environment, with fast, compact, accurate and secure control technology.

MTC sees automation as bringing huge benefits in production efficiency and quality without necessarily reducing the number of people employed. Indeed, it sees automation as being a method to maintain employment in UK manufacturing both through increased productivity and higher skills levels. To do this, the MTC looks at new and innovative automation technologies that allow companies to manufacture high-value goods using the skills of existing workforce.

"We anticipate that our membership will provide mutually beneficial exposure to key UK manufacturers," explains Lucie Thaxter, UK Sales Manager at Beckhoff Automation Ltd. "In addition we also have access to the MTC's very impressive facilities based in Antsy, near Coventry, so our engineers will be making extensive use of the site."

Housed in a 12,000 square metre purpose-built facility at Ansty Park, Coventry, the MTC represents one of the largest public sector investments in manufacturing for many years. Founded by the University of Birmingham, Loughborough University, the University of Nottingham and TWI Ltd., the centre was opened in 2011. Its current industrial members include some of the UK's major global manufacturers.
