Germany — The German division of Lantek is celebrating its 25th anniversary. The company is one of the pioneers in digitisation of sheet metal production. It was already thinking about networking when most of the plants didn't even have a PC.
Spain – Lantek now has a collaborative agreement with the Basque Center for Applied Mathematics (BCAM) to develop new models of applied mathematics and, algorithms that will enable metal forming industries to reach high levels of efficiency in their calculations.
The Advanced Forming Research Centre (AFRC) is a collaborative venture between the University of Strathclyde, Scottish Enterprise, the UK Government and leading multinational engineering firms. The centre’s objectives are to work proactively to disseminate skills and technology that will offer a different perspective to manufacturing methods by the use of forming techniques.
Vert Rotors, Edinburgh-based micro screw compressor manufacturer, has recently won the Innovator of the Year title at the Made in Scotland Awards for its innovative, patented conical screw compressors.
