Thanks to Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence’s sponsorship, apprentices will be able to learn an array of metrology skills and put them into practice on a wide variety of projects designed to develop innovative production processes.

The equipment in the new metrology room not only includes a GLOBAL Performance co- ordinate measuring machine equipped with Tesa probe, but also a ROMER portable measuring arm and some Swift-Fix modular fixturing systems.

More than 1,000 trainees including apprentices will be trained at the centre over the next ten years with the aim of providing business-ready technicians and engineers for the UK manufacturing sector.

“As a long-standing Tier One member, we’re delighted to support the MTC and play a part in helping to address the skills shortage in the engineering industry,” commented Brett Green, sales and marketing director at Hexagon Manufacturing Intelligence UK.
