Cheshire & Warrington Manufacturing Masterclass arrives in Alderley Park

Now in its second year, the Cheshire and Warrington 4.0 (CW4.0) Manufacturing Masterclass roadshow arrives at MedTech hub Alderley Park this November.

On the 23rd of November, the CW4.0 Manufacturing Masterclass will hear from multiple industry leaders, experts and local businesses on how they are utilising emerging and deep technology to help overcome typical and bespoke company barriers, support innovation and improve efficiencies and productivity.

CW4.0 supports manufacturing SMEs, across a broad spectrum of sectors including MedTech, in learning more about these technologies whilst offering them the opportunity to speak to its friendly team of experts. Attendees will be able to explore a range of state-of-the-art innovations in person to show the impact and value it can deliver.

CW4.0 will visually illustrate the benefits that deep technology can bring. The Manufacturing Masterclass will include a number of demonstrations from lead partner, the Virtual Engineering Centre (VEC), including Machine Learning, Condition Monitoring, Virtual Reality, a Robotic Arm, metahumans, amongst many others. This will showcase the growing need and accessibility of the latest technological innovations as well as the impact and value it can deliver to enable more efficient and productive workflows.

The day itself will feature presentations from Director of Business Innovation at Cheshire and Warrington Growth Hub Andy Devaney and Craig Beck of the VEC, as well as a host of SMEs including Karen Green (Klarity 4.0 HR), David Lowe (Autac Products Ltd) and Stuart Millward (Coinbite Limited).

Craig Beck, CW4.0 Engagement Lead at the Virtual Engineering Centre, said: “Emerging and deep technologies have the capabilities to unlock the potential of our region, and the SMEs within it. Harnessing the power of Machine Learning, Augmented Reality, and Metahumans, to name a few, is what will elevate the North West’s manufacturing presence on to the world’s stage.

“CW4.0 is all about facilitating events, partnerships, collaborations, research and development to make these technologies accessible for manufacturing SMEs. We are excited to welcome prospective partners to Alderley Park on the 23rd of November, as we look forward to a day of exploring the potential of today’s advanced technology.”

CW4.0 is being delivered by a consortium of North West organisations with decades of experience in helping businesses through their digital transformation. It is led by the University of Liverpool’s Virtual Engineering Centre (VEC), in partnership with the Science and Technology Facilities Council, Liverpool John Moore’s University, and the Northern Automotive Alliance. The initiative is part-funded by the European Regional Development Fund (ERDF).
