State-of-the-art Technologies

How you can gain competitive advantage with 3D Printing, 3D Scanning, Virtual and Augmented Reality, Robotics, IoT and Industry 4.0 

State-of-the-art Technologies:

How Designers, Engineers and SME Manufacturers can add some serious wow-factor, win business and radically improve product development and production processes. 

For small manufacturing businesses, design consultancies or even contractors, an awareness of the range of state-of-the-art technologies listed here, enables you to set yourself apart from your competition, offer more value to clients and earn more. Larger technical businesses and manufacturers are increasingly looking for smaller, more agile firms or contractors in the supply chain to inject innovation and so cut lead times, costs and defects.

No longer the preserve of the primes and OEMs, many of these state-of-the-art technologies are being adopted by small manufacturing businesses and smart design engineers to accelerate the product development process and get products to market more quickly. Likewise, it’s important engineers prepare for the future of manufacturing, specifically digital manufacturing. In-so-doing, they can ensure they have the skills to guarantee their future employability. The world of engineering design and manufacturing are changing and accelerating rapidly (just think how it’s changed since you first emerged!). Make sure you and your small technical business have the knowledge, skills and expertise to grow and thrive.

You’ll find plenty of highly informative information below (text, demo’s, slide shows and short vids), on the following start-of the art-technologies…
