We are delighted to welcome 2013 attendees to our new Hall 5 NEC location, accommodating five interlinked show streams at the heart of the UK’s high value engineering and technology sector, and combining to create a hugely exciting ‘integrated’ UK technology transfer and business development environment. The event reflects UK government’s continued prioritisation of these advanced engineering and technology sectors, right in the vanguard for delivering its ambitions to rebalance the economy, and actions being undertaken by combined industry, government and academic groups to provide the most coherent landscape and supporting infrastructure to maintain and further encourage the UK’s strength and leadership in these vital sectors. Increasing in size by 25% over last year’s event, the 2013 show floor plays host to 600+ specialist exhibitors of engineering technology, equipment, components and specialist services in one giant hall, together with five show-floor based open conference auditoriums, comprising some 200+ expert technical and strategic presentations over the two days. An exciting and expanded cross section of show floor feature exhibits, showcasing advanced engineering and technology in action, adds further to the experience for 2013 visitors. Individual show streams integrated under the ‘Advanced Engineering UK 2013’ canopy include Aero Engineering Show 2013, Composites Engineering Show 2013, Automotive Engineering Show 2013, Auto Electronics 2013 and Printable Electronics for Industry. The Aero Engineering Show represents the UK’s dedicated show and supporting open conference for the aerostructures, powerplant and aero systems engineering communities, providing a uniquely tailored annual ‘exhibition showcase’ of technology and engineering capability suppliers supporting the UK’s critically important Aero Engineering supply chain. Reflecting UK industry’s increasing demand across a diverse range of sectors for harnessing the benefits of composites materials, the Composites Engineering Show provides a crucial UK annual showcase of the very latest in composites materials, moulding and processing

equipment, trade processors and fabricators, design, simulation, test and automation partners and more. Supporting the rapidly expanding UK automotive design and manufacturing sector, the Automotive Engineering Show provides an important ‘showcase’ of specialist UK and international engineering, innovation and supply chain partners supporting the UK’s automotive vehicle body, chassis, powertrain engineering industries, including the hugely important low and ultra-low carbon vehicle sector. The introduction this year of the ‘Auto Electronics’ stream, alongside the Automotive Engineering Show, reflects the tough competition between vehicle manufacturers that is driving vehicle electronics technologies to support new levels of power management, functionality, safety, efficiency, infotainment and telematics. Finally, the Printable Electronics for Industry provides an important two day programme of presentations, and supporting features and industry partners, showcasing to wider attending design and engineering groups across multiple industries, the ‘potential’ for the game-changing technology of printable electronics.

Bigger than the sum of its parts Each individual show stream, through its exhibits, hosted presentations and special features, provides a ‘tailored’ value chain event, however at the same time visitors cannot escape the benefits of accessing such ‘high synergy’ components together, providing an ever richer and serendipitous landscape of sourcing opportunities, and transfer of ideas and technologies between like-minded high value engineering and technology groups and communities. These industry streams continually overlap and are inseparable from one another, as part of the greater ‘advanced engineering’ community.

The Voice of UK Manufacturing Advanced Engineering 2011 Show Guide interviews Terry Scuoler, CEO of our major partner, EEF – the organisation for UK manufacturing

Representing industry We talk with Terry Scuoler, Chief Executive at EEF about UK manufacturing today and in the future John Hancock

Rebalancing the economy The UK government has made it a central policy to rebalance the UK economy to be less dependent on services and public sector activities and more able to punch its weight in the value creating activities, specifically playing on and developing those strengths that have always been present in the UK, engineering and manufacturing.

A strong voice for industry Of course, these days, both activities are quite a lot different from the past with many heavy industries having moved to lower cost centres while the UK has been building a valuable position in high value and high quality engineering and manufacturing. Sectors such as aerospace have always been globally successful while the automotive industry has enjoyed the greatest resurgence story for many years and the UK’s leadership in composites engineering has added to the reasons why people want to do business here. In all of this, one body has been a pivotal force in encouraging manufacturing growth and excellence; EEF is, to use its own words, ‘manufacturing’s biggest supporter’. It is also a big supporter of Advanced Engineering UK 2013 group of events; so it is apt that we would want to learn EEF’s views through meeting the organisation’s Chief Executive, Terry Scuoler. As

in previous years, Terry answers to our questions were complete and very informative.

EEF is a membership

Advanced Engineering UK 2013: Why has EEF decided to work with Advanced Engineering UK 2013? Terry Scuoler: EEF is a membership community of businesses, thought-leaders, experts and influential authorities. Together we share best practice and innovative thinking and keep business networks open so that opportunity and new learning can flow. We are therefore delighted to be a key partner and supporter once again of this year’s Advanced Engineering UK event because it also provides the opportunity for knowledge and technology transfer, networking and business development across these high growth sectors. Importantly, it helps to illustrate the UK’s potential as a global engineering and technology hub to overseas customers, investors and partners.

invest in the infrastructure to enable the efficient movement of goods and people; it must have a competitive tax system that encourages long term investment and it must prioritise spending on areas that will support more companies bringing more products and services to market.

AEUK 2013: Please tell us a little about EEF’s work on green climate issues, sustainability and securing UK engineering’s place in tomorrow’s global economy? TS: The EEF Climate, Energy and Environmental Policy team work actively with manufacturers, government and environmental bodies to encourage the development of lowcarbon manufacturing processes and to reinforce the UK’s position as one of the world’s most environmentally-responsible manufacturing nations. EEF believes that growth must be at the heart of all government policy and environment and climate change is no different. We believe the two are not mutually incompatible and that transition to a low carbon economy, for the UK, can be AEUK 2013: How should government an opportunity for our manufacturing sector. support evolve to both support the advanced Cost-effectiveness and innovation must be at engineering sector today and prepare for the heart of any low carbon vision for longer term challenges and opportunities? manufacturing.

We contacts across all levels of government; it must argue that an effective EU will support UK efforts AEUK 2013: What will be the greatest opportunities that the advanced engineering sector could leverage over the next year to five years? TS: Whilst they will provide a challenge, the growth of emerging markets will also provide substantial opportunities for UK manufacturers. The growth in exports to the BRIC [Brazil, Russia, India and China] economies will continue and other markets such as the Middle East are also now assuming vital importance. In addition, we will continue to see the growth in opportunities provided by the low carbon economy and investment in green technology. Climate change is an issue that will be addressed by advanced engineering solutions.

to build a stronger, better balanced economy which delivers better trading conditions, more employment and raises living standards. What needs to happen now is that we focus on making the EU work better for growth. AEUK 2013: Please tell us a little about EEF’s work on skills and apprenticeship development in engineering? TS: Engineering and manufacturing’s competitiveness hinges on a skilled workforce. Recruiting and developing the right skills, at the right level equips manufacturers with the capability to deliver and grow. Better skilled employees are more productive, ensuring companies become more flexible and competitive. At EEF, skills and apprenticeship development are integral to our work and we actively deliver in three key areas: our research and influencing activity; through the delivery of our own national skills and apprentice service; and our training and development programmes which span shop-floor to top-floor. On the delivery side, EEF is committed to ensuring that businesses in our industry are able to find and train the next generation of engineering and manufacturing talent at all levels across the business. That’s why we also deliver a range of skills and development programmes which span apprentices through to senior manufacturing executives.

The government, in turn, with an improved understanding of the root causes of those challenges will frame appropriate policies to enable Welsh businesses to prosper

Industry Wales Finding paths to success, building on strength; technology and manufacturing in Wales are positioning for growth John Hancock

Playing to strengths Wales has always been innovative and productive; the country is vibrant with a significant proportion of the UK’s industrial heartbeat. But, like many other former industrial powerhouses, the slow decline in heavy manufacturing that followed the Second World War had an impact. However, like their Rugby team, the Welsh are not given to selfpity: just as when the team concedes a try at the Millennium Stadium, they step back, regroup and re-enter the fray with renewed heart, so the country has considered what it is good at and, playing to those strengths, has forged a significant place in the new industrial landscape that is the UK in Europe today.

Two-way benefits with Industry Wales To further strengthen its position, Industry Wales has been established by Welsh Assembly Government Minister for Energy, Science and Transport, Edwina Hart MBE CStJ AM. The new organisation has a clear mandate radically to enhance the partnership between the private sector and government in the key areas of: R&D

and innovation; skills and capability; investment, and supply chain. To do this Robert Kathro, CEO of Industry Wales, explains that the relationship with the private sector is a two-way thing. “The first step is to understand and jointly address the challenges that technology and manufacturing businesses face so that, together, they can better communicate their needs to the government. And the government, in turn, with an improved understanding of the root causes of those challenges will frame appropriate policies to enable Welsh businesses to prosper. “In the other direction, Industry Wales seeks to increase engagement with industry and improve industry’s awareness of the support available to assist with their success. While there is a focus on the middle ranks of medium sized companies (£20m-£300m turnover) in aerospace, automotive and electronics, software and technology, other sectors and companies of all sizes are included where there is a mutual benefit. Any business, any size and from any sector, can approach us to discuss where we might be able to add value for them and we’re always looking for the next cohort of companies to join those ranks.”

Forums and Networks Industry Wales comprises three key industry forums and networks: Aerospace Wales, The Welsh Automotive Forum and the ESTnet (electronics software, technology network). These three bodies have approaching 400 companies as members and have been in existence for many years delivering excellent results within their sectors. Industry Wales is building on this work and extending it to address common technology and manufacturing challenges.

Wales… open for Business Wales believes it is the right place for advanced, high value manufacturing and technology activities in Aerospace, Automotive and Electronics/ Software/Technology (EST) because Industry Wales is, with its specialist aerospace, automotive and electronics, software and technology forums, helping to grow Welsh technology and manufacturing businesses globally. The forums provide a range of services to support companies already established within Wales and to attract and support companies that are seeking a world class location for their business.

Just as Wales is an integrated economy, so Industry Wales is engaged with companies from the private sector and a wide range of existing organisations that focus on specific areas including Finance Wales, the Technology Strategy Board (TSB), academia, the EEF, various skills bodies and of course relevant government departments; acting as interface between these drivers of finance, development and sources of innovation; encouraging and facilitating collaborations in which each group can draw on the others’ strengths to deliver a better outcome for all. Looking at specific sectors; with one of Europe’s largest aerospace facilities at Broughton in North Wales, the country already has strength in depth in the sector. It is also a key player in the UK-wide National Aerospace Technology Exploitation Programme (NATEP) and is an active participant in the Aerospace Growth Partnership (AGP). Automotive is another area where Wales is already strong but, with the growth and success of UK auto engineering and manufacturing, the Welsh Automotive Forum within Industry Wales sees great opportunity for Welsh companies to deliver into the supply chain for those high value vehicles and others at the heart of a resurgent UK motor industry. Operating in the area of software, hardware and associated technologies, ESTnet is a broad church encompassing a huge array of technology products and services This is a dynamic sector which not only forges its own rapid progress, but is all pervasive as it both enables and is increasingly built into almost every element of high value engineering, manufacturing and services.

A supportive government Two among the many Welsh Government initiatives are focused on supply chain and FDI (foreign direct investment).Industry Wales is working to support these by building intelligence about supply chain opportunities in which Welsh businesses can deliver value, and promoting opportunities for companies looking for a place to invest. Wales provides a unique blend of skills and capability, leading academic and research capacity plus a range of support services to ease the process, and an established, highly competent supplier base. Wales has a long term outlook and understands that businesses need to know that they will continue to prosper under a supportive regime that puts business first as a means of driving economic growth on a global stage.

An advanced state of manufacturing Sheffield University AMRC with Boeing and Nuclear AMRC will give UK manufacturing a clear advantage with future proofing Peter Dunwell

The face and practice of manufacturing is changing. In a country that has positioned itself at the high end of the manufacturing value and quality scales, where low or zero tolerances are the norm and where quality is integral to performance, manufacturers cannot afford to adopt any but the highest standards and practices if they are to remain in their chosen sectors and supply chain(s). UK manufacturers are fortunate inasmuch as there is an organisation whose core purpose is ‘to help manufacturing businesses become more competitive through the application of new techniques, technologies and processes.’ This is the University of Sheffield Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) with Boeing and the associated Nuclear AMRC (NAMRC).

Ridgway CBE, University of Sheffield AMRC, one of those who founded the Centre, to answer our questions and help attendees and readers to better understand this excellent UK centre. Advanced Engineering UK 2013: How would you summarise AMRC and Nuclear AMRC? Professor Keith Ridgway CBE: Both centres are world-class hubs for collaborative, industry-led research into real manufacturing problems, with the aim of helping UK companies win work worldwide.

AEUK 2013: Where do AMRC and Nuclear AMRC fit into the overall plan for UK advanced manufacturing? Prof KR: The government has realised that manufacturing is still a vital part of the UK economy, and needs to be supported by closer collaboration between businesses, universities Quality and engineering excellence is also integral and government. The AMRC has pioneered the to the Advanced Engineering UK 2013 group collaborative model which is now being rolled of events, so we met with Professor Keith out by the Technology Strategy Board [TSB]

The government has realised that manufacturing is still a vital part of the UK economy, and needs to be supported by closer collaboration between businesses, universities and government

and within government – the value of that approach is now something that is recognised by all parties. Herman Hauser and James Dyson, in their reports on technology and innovation published before the last election, both identified the AMRC with Boeing as a model of best practice, and the new Catapult programme is now putting that into action across the economy. AEUK 2013: Why is there a need for organisations such as AMRC and Prof KR: We bridge the gap between the innovation that’s going on in universities and research labs, and what industry needs to see in new technologies. Companies want something that’s ready to go into their own factories, but most universities don’t have the resources to develop their ideas to that level. That gap is what is often called the Valley of Death, and that’s where we sit – we close the gap between innovation and industry. AEUK 2013: AMRC and Nuclear AMRC sit within both academia and industry: what are the advantages to both sides in bringing together these two components in the economy? Prof KR: For manufacturers, it’s about giving them access to the latest technologies and ways of working and, crucially, giving them the facilities to experiment with these innovations and apply them to their own business, without losing any of their current production capacity. Often, companies do have the machines and skills inhouse to do it themselves, but they can’t afford to take them out of production. For academic researchers, it’s about the capability to take their ideas out of the laboratory and into the real world. And for the universities, it helps create wealth in their communities, create rewarding careers for

their graduates, and bring in industrial levels of research funding. AEUK 2013: What are the five key projects to which AMRC and Nuclear AMRC are engaged at the moment? Prof KR: We’re working on hundreds of projects, from a couple of days with an SME to help them optimise a specific machining process, to multimillion-pound collaborations with businesses and universities across Europe. So it’s not easy to identify five key projects; nevertheless, the following are of great importance. Samulet (Strategic affordable manufacturing in the UK through leading environmental technologies), backed by the Technology Strategy Board, is a national programme to create new environmentally-friendlier ways of making jet engines and structures for the aerospace industry. The AMRC with Boeing is working with Rolls-Royce and other partners, on areas such as the machinability of new super-alloys, and developing cutting tools made of supertough materials. With Reform (Resource-efficient factory of recyclable manufacturing for composite components) the AMRC Composite Centre is working with a dozen companies and research institutions across Europe, with funding from the European Commission, to develop new ways of making composites manufacturing more environmentally sustainable, such as innovative waterjet machining techniques to reduce energy use and waste. Civil nuclear Sharing in Growth is a £76m programme backed by government and industry partners including Rolls-Royce, with the aim of reinvigorating the UK supply chain for civil nuclear and helping companies win business worldwide. It’s a huge and varied

is the creation of spin out companies using the technologies we are developing. We encourage our young engineers to consider setting up their own business and creating wealth in the region. AEUK 2013: What type and/or size of business will best benefit from working with AMRC and Nuclear AMRC? Prof KR: We work with all sizes of business, from the global giants to local SMEs, making anything from steel boxes to jet fighters. Broadly, we focus on the cutting, forming and joining of speciality metals, as well as innovative materials like composites – but we are led by what industry demands. If we don’t have the capabilities you need, we can draw on the wider resources of the High Value Manufacturing Catapult, as well as the specialist expertise of our industrial partners.

programme, involving R&D to tailor welding and machining technologies for nuclear applications, as well as in-depth support and training to the most promising suppliers. Nnuman (New nuclear manufacturing) is a four year collaboration between the Nuclear AMRC, the Dalton Nuclear Institute and the National Nuclear Laboratory, to develop innovative manufacturing techniques for the future needs of the UK nuclear industry. We’re developing cutting techniques for new alloys, and investigating the use of swarms of machining robots to work on very large components. With Bloodhound SSC we’re making some of the most complex metal parts for this supersonic car, designed to be driven at 1000mph. The challenge for us is to make these very demanding components right first time. It’s a brilliant showcase for UK manufacturing, and it’s getting a new generation excited about engineering. AEUK 2013: What do you foresee might be the projects in which AMRC and Nuclear AMRC will be engaged in five years? Prof KR: We’re preparing to build a new facility called Factory 2050, which will be the world’s most flexible research factory. It will be the UK’s first fully reconfigurable assembly and component manufacturing facility for collaborative research, capable of rapidly switching production between different high-value components and one-off parts. We’ll be using that, and our other facilities, to develop the next generation of manufacturing technology, things that are now only starting to emerge from the laboratories. AEUK 2013: One of the AMRC strap lines reads ‘Factory of the Future’. How will that differ from the factory of today? Prof KR: It’s partly about having the flexibility to do more with the resources you have – doing more on one machine to improve productivity by not wasting time moving parts around, and

having the capability to make more different products while working to lean principles. It’s partly about automating more complex tasks, to maintain quality and free up your people for more interesting work. And it’s partly about losing the image of the dirty old factory as a place where you wouldn’t want to work – we’re proud of how many of our visitors comment on the cleanliness of our workshops and the enthusiasm of our staff. AEUK 2013: What is the AMRC and Nuclear AMRC achievement/programme of which you are most proud? Prof KR: Working with Messier-Dowty to help them win the undercarriage contract for the Boeing 787 was our first headline win – a first for MessierDowty, with huge benefits for the supply chain across the UK. Rolls-Royce is now building factories in the UK based on production processes we developed with them – without the productivity gains from that work, those factories wouldn’t be economically viable. We’re also very proud of our local impact, turning an old coalfield into a thriving manufacturing park, and giving fantastic opportunities to local young people. It’s fantastic to take on a 16-year-old from Sheffield as an apprentice, and see them become a highly skilled and highly employable engineer. Our new apprentice training centre will provide a mechanism where local young people can progress from apprentice right through to engineering doctorate. They will be sponsored by local companies with the ‘Earn and Learn’ programme and have no fees and no debt. This is opening up access to higher education to anyone in the community

AEUK 2013: Why are AMRC and Nuclear AMRC supporting and participating in the Advanced Engineering UK 2013 group of Events? Prof KR: It’s one of the biggest showcases for the state of the art in advanced manufacturing, aimed at the kind of forward-thinking company that we can work with. I’d encourage anyone to come and talk to us to find out more about how we can help. AEUK 2013: What can a participating business expect to experience from involvement with AMRC and NAMRC? Prof KR: Practical collaborative problem-solving, based on world-leading research excellence, innovation and experience. AEUK 2013: Is there anything else about AMRC and NAMRC on which you’d like to expand for us? Prof KR: We are excited about the range of technologies and projects we are now involved in. The recent acquisition of Castings Technology International greatly expands the portfolio of technologies available to us and I see great potential to develop new near net shape casting techniques.

AEUK 2013: Where do you feel AMRC and Nuclear AMRC could apply lessons learned Closing the interview, we look forward to learning further about developments at AMRC for future improvement? Prof KR: One area where I think we could improve and NAMRC in future years.

AEUK 2013: AMRC is described as being… ‘to help manufacturing businesses become more competitive through the application of new techniques, technologies and processes.’ Could you briefly describe one or two of each of the ‘new techniques, technologies and processes’ available today? Prof KR: It can be anything from an innovative cutting tool for a specific metal or task, through to a fully automated and integrated production line for a complex aerofoil. We can combine a huge range of basic techniques to your specific problem; from machining simulation to robotic vision and artificial intelligence.

Paul Everitt

Up-to-date information on UK Aerospace With Aero Engineering and Aerospace being such a significant component in UK Advanced Engineering, it will be one of the key sectors in Advanced Engineering UK 2013 group of events and is set to create ever greater opportunities for businesses in the UK engineering supply chain. So the current condition, future outlook and views of the sector are very important. ADS (Aerospace, Defence and Security) is the lead trade organisation for the sector and so we were very pleased to be able to catch up with that body’s Chief Executive, Paul Everitt. Paul is, as you might expect, a very busy chap but found the time to bring Advanced Engineering UK 2013 attendees some up-to-date information on those condition, outlook and views. As always, we asked the questions and, as you will see, he gave us the comprehensive answers.

Aero Engineering 2013: What are the factors that underpin the strength and world position of the UK aerospace sector? Paul Everitt: The UK’s long history and heritage in aerospace underpins our strength and world position. Over the last century Britain has been a leading contributor to some of the most significant developments in the aerospace sector; from Frank Whittle’s invention of the Turbojet, to the design of Concorde. Such a strong background has given rise to the presence of leading global companies such as Rolls Royce, GKN Aerospace and Airbus. The UK’s dominance in the Aerospace sector – a 17% global market share – is maintained today by world leading skills and expertise in R&D, engineering and manufacturing. Indeed, the wings of the Airbus A380- one of the most significant aircraft development programmes

of the 21st century- were developed and are manufactured in the UK. AE 2013: What is the significance of the Aerospace Growth Partnership (AGP), how does it operate and what is its objective? PE: The Aerospace Growth Partnership is a joint industry and Government commitment to protect, exploit, and position the UK’s Aerospace industry over the next 20 years. It aims to do this through a range of measures: a £40m fund to increase innovation and collaboration in the supply chain; funding to support 500 Masters graduate places; and through the creation of the Aerospace Technology Institute (ATI) with £2bn of matched Industry and Government funding over the next seven years. AE 2013: What has been the level of involvement of and with the government and how is that expected to develop in future? PE: The AGP has been given significant support from the Government and is co-Chaired by the Minister of State for Business and Enterprise, Michael Fallon MP. Moreover, the programme has received considerable support from the Prime Minister, the Chancellor and the Secretary of State for Business and has received £1bn of direct government funding, matched by industry, over the next seven years.

AE 2013: Tell me a little about the part that innovative manufacturing methods are contributing to the UK aerospace industry’s competitiveness? PE: Innovative manufacturing methods are hugely important to the competitiveness of the UK aerospace industry. Bombardier’s composite wing development at their Belfast facility has increased the structural performance of aircraft wings and impacted on the overall development of advanced composites technology in the aerospace industry. Similarly, Messier-Bugatti Dowty and the Government’s investment in new titanium machining processes at the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC) has enabled the increased use of weight-saving titanium in landing gear, including a titanium inner cylinder – an industry first. In order to ensure the UK maintains its global position, one of the key focal points of the AGP is innovation throughout supply chains.

Manufacturing Catapult Centres – many of which are Aerospace led – has helped to act as a catalyst for manufacturing technology transfer between sectors.

AE 2013: Why is it important that technological innovation in aerospace remains a strong component in the UK’s sector; what are the areas where it matters most and how can the government best support that effort? PE: Aerospace is the cornerstone of UK high value manufacturing; it is home to a highly skilled, well remunerated workforce and delivers significant technological spill-over benefits to the economy. However, aircraft manufacturers want better environmental performance to satisfy legislative and public demand. To be leaner and greener new generations of aircraft will need to incorporate radically different technologies, and the UK cannot take its market leading status for granted. As such, the AGP has identified the UK’s current AE 2013: In what areas does Aerospace strengths in aerospace design, engineering and work with other engineering and materials manufacturing, and has focused on four key disciplines and sectors? areas for UK based technological innovation; PE: The Aerospace sector works with many aerodynamics (wing design), propulsion (rotor other engineering and materials disciplines blades, engine assembly), aero structures and sectors; indeed one only has to look at (fuselage and wing assembly) and advanced the automotive and Formula 1 industries to see systems (avionics, undercarriage). The Government can best support these efforts aerospace technologies utilised in a range of contexts. Moreover, the creation of High Value by continuing to fund and support R&D through

the AGP and its initiatives such as NATEP (National Aerospace Technology Exploitation Programme) which seeks to foster supply chain innovation and industry collaboration. AE 2013: What will be the key aerospace programmes that will involve UK resources in the next 10 years? PE: There are many key aerospace programmes that will involve UK resources in the next 10 years. For example, new platforms such as the Airbus A350XWB, whose composite wings will be designed and manufactured in the UK, will help to maintain a significant presence in UK Aerospace, as well as Bombardier’s C series whose wings are developed at the company’s Belfast Composite wing facility. Moreover, the UK Aerospace industry, both through the prime contractors and the supply chain, is well placed to benefit from key Airbus programmes such as the A320 (neo), A330 and A380 and has a significant stake in many large Boeing programmes such as the 737 and 787.

Working for the future On this reckoning, and who could know better, it seems that UK Aero Engineering continues to be a sector in rude health but without any trace of complacency. Today, the industry is at the top of its game but it is good to know that everybody, from the highest levels of government down, with programmes such as AGP and NATEP (see above), and SC21 (see box), is committed to actively maintaining that position through programmes of development, innovation and supply chain excellence.

Supply Chains for the 21st Century (SC21) is an improvement programme designed to increase the performance of suppliers and ultimately their supply chains within the UK aerospace, security, space and defence industries. The programme is a collaborative effort with ADS leading the programme at a national level, working with signatory companies, primes, regional trade associations (RTAs), strategic partners and accredited training providers. An interesting facet of the SC21 programme is that it also delivers a number of active work streams; groups of industry representatives that support the development of special areas of interest .

SC21: Where it all started? In 2006 the Society of British Aerospace Companies (SBAC) and its members agreed on a single programme to improve performance across the UK aerospace industry. SBAC subsequently launched SC21 at the Farnborough International Airshow with Government support. Nineteen founding companies (sixteen of the country’s largest primes and three key small and medium sized enterprises – SMEs) also signed up to the programme at the Airshow. Now the programme continues to grow, averaging four new signatories every week, giving industry a bright future and strong support from within its own community. In October 2009, SBAC merged with the Defence Manufacturers Association (DMA) and the Association of Police and Public Security Suppliers (APPSS) to become ADS.

52 | MIDLANDS AEROSPACE ALLIANCE

Stronger and more capable together The Midlands Aerospace Alliance is more than a club; it’s a portal between the region and the global aerospace industry John Hancock

Connected communities No-one would doubt the quality and capability of UK engineering firms, large or small; however, to succeed in a global market, it’s useful to establish a place in a recognised supply chain, which requires more than quality and capability. Supply chains are connected providers and firms wishing to participate stand more chance if they’re part of a connected community. Midlands Aerospace Alliance (MAA) is one such connected community for the cluster of Midlands engineering firms supplying to or seeking to supply to the very demanding aerospace industry, whether in the UK or globally. Andrew Mair, Chief Executive of MAA describes it as; “We’re here to help that cluster of companies to work together more efficiently so they can bring manufacturing for global aircraft programmes to our region.”

Globalisation There are many ways in which MAA assists members establishing and maintaining a place in the ever changing aerospace supply chain. Andrew explained that internationalisation of the industry creates various challenges for companies at different levels in the supply chain. Whereas large companies (often tier 1 companies and OEMs) can more easily internationalise their operations and might already view the world as their oyster, smaller companies need to combine their internal strengths and the advantages of

being located in a dynamic regional cluster. Even large companies have to learn to think global on the world stage but, wherever they establish an operation, like local businesses they also seek to draw on the local cluster.

National context As a regional cluster, MAA also contributes to larger clusters within the UK’s aerospace effort and participates in a number of working groups within the UK industry. The organisation represents Midlands companies at a high level on, for instance, the AGP (Aerospace Growth Partnership) which, in turn, has the potential to support British companies throughout the global marketplace. And, while NATEP (National Aerospace Technology Programme) is now an English national programme also being adopted in the Devolved Administrations, its origins were in a similar Midlands programme, considered a successful model for developing technology within a supply chain. MAA contributes actively to rolling out NATEP which, as well as offering funding, also works as a mentoring network for companies developing businesses and processes for the demanding aerospace supply chain. Alongside being an integral part of different aerospace related initiatives, Andrew Mair also explains that, “It is a great strength of the Midlands [aerospace] cluster that the organisation and members participate in broader engineering clusters where they can tap into

www.midlandsaerospace.org.uk 2013 | SHOWGUIDE

skills and expertise to be found in other industries as well as diverse business opportunities. A number of companies in the aerospace supply chain also participate in other engineering sectors and MAA is often happy to collaborate such as when we recently organised a joint event with the Rail Alliance.”

Government policy Given that the Government has made it a central pillar of their industrial policy to support and encourage the UK’s manufacturing sector in an effort to rebalance to economy, how well does MAA feel that policy is being implemented? Up until 2005, there was a long period when governments believed that all they needed to do was create background conditions conducive to manufacturing; however, now, as Andrew confirmed, the Government is, “actively supporting manufacturing industry by not only creating a stable environment but also ensuring that sufficient research and technology funding is available for a sector such as aerospace: really getting behind the industry… trying to understand the best ways in which they can help to make manufacturing more successful.” To discover more about the Midlands Aerospace Alliance, visit them on stand B13 at Aero Engineering 2013 in the Advanced Engineering UK 2013 group of events.


54 | GKN DOWTY

GKN Aerospace lifts A350 And lifts awards for Airbus’s next generation A350XWB key wing spar

A month of awards This has been a good year for GKN Aerospace with not one but two prestigious awards in the month of October for the quality of their composites engineering. First was the 2013 Horners Award for Plastics Innovation and Design to GKN Aerospace for its ‘highly innovative’ Airbus A350 XWB carbon fibre rear wing spar. The award recognises the success of an intensive development and production programme that has seen GKN Aerospace engineers, working closely with the Airbus team, achieve demanding goals for the A350 XWB wing spar that will help increase the aircraft’s performance and reduce its weight, fuel consumption and emissions.

New and innovative processes Each wing’s 27m long rear spar is manufactured in three sections and forms the structural heart of the wing fixed trailing edge (FTE). The spar attaches vital parts including the main landing gear, to the wing. Its complex integral contours are achievable only as a result of manufacturing innovations introduced by GKN Aerospace and these contours provide the specific strength and flexibility required with minimal weight. Once the spar is manufactured, GKN Aerospace is responsible for assembling the complete wing FTE and delivering this assembly to Airbus in

Broughton ready for integration onto the wing. To produce this complex spar structure and assemble the WTE, the company has created a totally new, advanced, automated manufacturing and assembly facility near Bristol, England, with innovations across product design manufacture and assembly, including material deposition, tooling and forming, finishing, assembly and testing. Here, among many process innovations, advanced automated fibre placement (AFP) machines use robotic heads to lay down carbon fibre reinforced plastic (CFRP) material at more than eight times the maximum hand lay-up speed, and with a consistency and accuracy that is impossible to achieve manually. Using this new facility, the company can produce lightweight CFRP components with complex, bespoke geometries, and integrate complete assemblies swiftly, cost effectively and consistently.

Further recognition The second award, also for the A350 XWB rear wing spar design, was the UK Composites Industry award for ‘Innovation in Composites Design,’ one of eight awards made by Composite UK, the trade body for the UK composites industry. This award is sponsored by the National Composites Centre (NCC) and recognises the significant manufacturing and materials progress achieved in developing this all-composite structure.

The 787 landing gears include a number of technological innovations, specifically in the area of new materials that have the effect of: • Reducing landing gear weight;

at more than eight times the maximum hand lay-up speed

• Reducing corrosion and providing higher resistance to fatigue versus steel parts. A number of components are made from titanium including the main gear inner cylinder, which is an industry first.

And now for the 787-9 Having recently completed a further development programme, Messier-BugattiDowty also began production in the first quarter of 2013 for the reinforced variant of the main and nose landing gears needed for the 787-9 to support its increased maximum take-off weight.

BINDT – testing, but not to breaking point Non-destructive testing (NDT) is not just a test but is also key to a planned and economic inspection regime John Hancock

that the part or structure will need to undergo and likely defects in the material and as a result of the manufacturing process and the tolerable level of risk will allow an inspection regime to be established for the expected life of the part or structure. If risk tolerance is high (say, for a fence post) it probably won’t be necessary to inspect ever; where risk tolerance is low (say, for the wing of an airliner) it will be necessary to instigate a regular and high level of inspection.

Business logic

Tony Dunhill

NDT is not just a technical process either; it has powerful business logic. “Good high value manufacturing,” explains, Tony Dunhill, “is a marriage of the design, duty cycle, materials and inspection… from a business point of view, if you get the inspection correct and can set a service interval, it is possible to re-inspect [at the end of that interval] to predict a safe life extension.” For some very high cost sectors such as offshore oil and gas production, life extension of structures in the infrastructure can be the decider whether reserves are economically exploitable. Non-destructive testing: to the layman or woman In fact, aging infrastructure is a significant it might sound like a contradiction in terms but contributor to the growth in NDT: that and the it only takes a moment’s thought to realise how fact that new infrastructure is expected to have sensible the idea is. While samples of components a longer life than might once have been the or even some structures might well need to be case. Although some flaws are acceptable in tested to destruction as final confirmation of many structures, the smaller the flaws that can their integrity and durability, once you’ve tested be detected at new, the more accurately can something to destruction it obviously will not be of inspection regimes be constructed – a further use any more. So non-destructive testing (NDT), business case. with X-rays, ultrasound, dye penetrant, magnetic particle inspection and an array of methods has a Understanding risk very important role to play in many circumstances. Another value of NDT is the generation of data from which IT modelling can be developed to accurately predict the performance of a part Setting a baseline In the first place, NDT can be used with a new or structure. Where, say, materials are being component or structure to establish a baseline developed, the test piece will invariably be X-rayed from which life expectation, rate of wear and or tested to understand them so that if it fails regularity of maintenance can be planned. As in a mechanical test there is a start point from Tony Dunhill, President of BINDT (The British which the failure can be reliably quantified; also, Institute of Non-Destructive Testing) puts it; “If it is important to understand and to be able to you design something for a particular use and quantify how flaws perform (along with the other expected lifetime, there can be a level of flaw that data, see above) to know whether they are likely will be acceptable in service but if it is flawed from to be harmful or not. the outset, that can be a problem [unless you understand the flaw and can predict how it will A career opportunity behave/change in service].

COMPOSITES UK | 59 Source: Cytec

Joined-up actions Composites UK is not just a talking shop and its actions do speak louder than words for the UK Composites sector Peter Dunwell

Composites UK is a body established to develop and strengthen the UK composites industry, to promote composites to the wider community and to serve its more than 170 members. There are a number of key initiatives within Composites UK which will of particular interest to attendees at the Composites Engineering Show 2013.

AMSCI and CiC – addressing challenges The first is AMSCI (Advanced Manufacturing Supply Chain Initiative) and associated CiC (Composites Innovation Cluster). Dr Sue Halliwell, Operations Manager at Composites UK explains that… “The Advanced Manufacturing Supply Chain Initiative has been set up by UK Government to help existing UK supply chains grow and achieve world class standards while encouraging major new suppliers to come and manufacture in England. “£23M of joint funding from AMSCI and Industry was awarded to the Composites Innovation Cluster [CiC] programme at the end of 2012 to support the creation of 200 jobs, safeguard 1,000 indirect roles and create £190million of growth by addressing market failures which challenge the wider adoption of composites in UK markets. The CiC will deliver 13 integrated capability projects across 25 partners [over a three year period] from Q1 2013 and aims to deliver a holistic supply

chain model which can extend throughout the composites community. “The market failures [that have been identified] are the availability of composites skills, training and experience in the UK suppliers and primes (people); the development of new materials and formats for recyclables, high performance, rapid processing and handling in the manufacturing cycle (materials); and the automated, high-volume, rapid manufacturing and joining methods of composite structures in volume (technology). The CiC programme brings these challenges together in a collaboration of industrial and academic partners from England with the support of UK primes to build an intelligent, sustainable, competitive and highly networked UK composites supply base which will enable the design and manufacture of lightweight vehicles, structures and devices (knowledge).”

Composites Leadership Forum Composites is one of the industrial capabilities that has been identified as a particular opportunity for UK businesses supported by research facilities and government. So it is no surprise that there is a UK Composites Strategy that sets out how the UK can build further success onto what is already a world-leading sector with considerable potential to contribute to economic growth. Since the strategy was published in 2009, a great deal

has already been achieved in terms of building the knowledge and programme infrastructure to support a successful sector. The opening of the National Composites Centre in Bristol in 2011, to provide world class R&D and manufacturing capability to all UK composites companies has been a significant development. The Composites Leadership Forum will work with key stakeholders, supported by the Government, to map and define UK composites capability and future growth potential. It will provide strategic direction and assist UK industry to meet expanding demand from a wide range of sectors. Representatives from automotive, aerospace, construction, motorsport, education and skills sectors were involved from the outset, with others, including rail, renewables and marine expected to join; SMEs are represented by Composites UK. The Composites Leadership Forum will identify key opportunities and challenges for the greater use of composites and will produce a joint action plan to address current and future needs in technology, skills, supply chain development and infrastructure to ensure the UK remains competitive. Looking from the wider market, Composites UK is doing a splendid job creating the conditions for what politicians like to call ‘joined-up’ thinking and, more importantly, joined-up actions with several identifiable and useful purposes.

NetComposites at Composites Engineering Showing what composites can do, where they can do it and how they can be used… plus answering your questions Peter Dunwell

A number of elements, from clean propulsion systems to weight saving methodologies, make up the ‘green’ industrial revolution currently underway. However, weight saving has often led to a conundrum… how to maintain strength and safety. That might have been largely addressed with the arrival of composites, materials with potentially great strength yet little weight: however, the new conundrum is how best to apply those composites in sectors where their attributes will be useful. Which is where NetComposites comes in; as their website explains, ‘NetComposites is a global research, consultancy… creating and using innovative technologies to advance the composites industry... We undertake consultancy and major development projects to create innovative composites products and processes for our partner companies, using our own development facilities…’

Composites forums So it seems natural that NetComposites would be hosting a number of forum sessions within the Composites Engineering Show 2013. The content of these sessions will fall into five broad areas, selected because, as Dr Joe Carruthers, Operations Director at NetComposites explains; “We’ve tried to select topics that would be interesting to attendees [at the Show] based around… emerging technologies, with a chance to learn more about biocomposites and nanocomposites; aspects, such as recycling and NDT [non-destructive testing], that have proved challenging and where the industry is looking for new ways of working; and thermoplastics and how they can be applied in volume production operations.”

To briefly summarise: biocomposites are composite materials derived from natural, renewable sources and better able to meet environmental and sustainability targets. Nanocomposites include small quantities of microscopic particles to modify the behaviour of the material and improve its mechanical, electrical or thermal properties: the challenges are getting the idea to a usable level and there are some health and safety issues to be resolved around handling. Also, whereas traditional thermosets often had long cycle times making them unsuitable for volume production applications, thermoplastics offer shorter cycle times making them more applicable in volume manufacturing environments such as the automotive industry. On the process side, dealing with composite waste is likely to be a growing challenge as legislation increasingly prescribes end-of-life expectations which, in turn, will require the industry

Ask the Experts about composites, what they do and how to use them Attendees at this year’s events will again be able to take advantage of the on-the-showfloor ‘Ask the Expert’ free advice service, hosted by headline partner NetComposites. Utilising a panel of experts built around NetComposites’ significant contributions to this year’s Composites open conference programme, and further supplemented with a number of additional experts on hand, the service provides a valuable initial service for attendees to discuss their specific needs and be independently advised of technical options and possible partners or solutions to seek out across the show floor.

to develop viable end-of-life solutions. Also, given the nature of many composites and how they are used, testing components and structures can be a challenge. Non-destructive testing (NDT) is therefore a growing area of expertise particularly suited to testing composites components without the test itself risking a compromise to structural integrity. There will also be focus on manufacturing in composites and composites in construction, for each of which there is a dedicated organisation

The Centre for Innovative Manufacturing in Composites (CIMComp) CIMComp was formed with funding from the EPSRC (Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council) to underpin the research needed to support UK Composites Strategy. Research partners include the universities of Nottingham, Cranfield, Manchester and Bristol all leading projects under the CIMComp hub.

Hosted from the NetComposites stand (#D130) in the centre of the Composites Engineering show floor, members of the NetComposites team will be present throughout the show. These experts will be available covering different topics at the following times:

64 | JAGUAR LAND ROVER

Jaguar Land Rover leading the way With two landmark developments, the British luxury and sports car manufacturer has seized the initiative on next generation manufacturing John Hancock

Jaguar Land Rover brings together two iconic brands from the British automotive Hall of Fame. Jaguar has, for most of its life, been a byword for affordable, performance luxury motoring while Land Rover’s reputation as the definitive rugged off-road 4x4 vehicle has often been emulated but rarely surpassed. However, we are lucky that both brands remain extant, based and made in the UK. During the dark days when it seemed that British auto engineering might wholly vanish, both brands suffered a series of disastrous ownerships, poor management and suicidal labour relations. That has all changed under the current management team and owner, Tata, whose faith in the brands, willingness to invest in new models and determination to realise the full potential that was always there in UK capabilities has propelled Jaguar Land Rover and its two brands back onto the global stage with a vengeance.

New models are, of course, a large part of the story that has seen the latest offerings from the English Midlands based car makers become ‘must have’ purchases in the USA, India and China, to name but three places where the Jaguar and Land Rover names are again synonymous with quality. But quality isn’t only about models, it is about how those models are developed and built and, in that respect, Jaguar land Rover isn’t just up to the minute, it is actually setting the agenda with far-sighted investments in innovative and future facign ideas generation and implementation. In just two recent Midlands developments, we can illustrate how this is working.

NAIC will enable the company to bring its research and advanced engineering operations under one roof in an innovative and creative environment for academic and industry experts to work together developing the products of the future. According to Jenny Waddington in the 29th October 2013 Coventry Telegraph, the NAIC, which will be largest research facility of its kind outside of Germany, is expected to open in National Automotive 2016. It will also be a shining example of the Innovation Campus (NAIC) In a ground-breaking step to the future of growing phenomenon of academia and industry automotive manufacture, Jaguar Land Rover has bringing their respective strengths to a venture signed a £100million deal to build an automotive that will almost certainly prove larger than the

sum of its parts in its impact on the advance of auto engineering. Speaking to the press, Dr Ralf Speth, CEO of Jaguar Land Rover, said: “I am delighted that we have finalised the NAIC agreement and continuing our collaborative partnership with WMG and the University of Warwick.” Lord Bhattacharyya, WMG chairman, said: “Our vision is to… link people, research and world-leading infrastructure to create and develop novel technologies. NAIC will be an engine for economic growth, with wide economic benefit, and sustained growth from the creation of world-leading technologies.”

i54 plant to revolutionise production i54 is a development site in South Staffordshire where Staffordshire Council wishes to encourage a resurgence of local industrial growth. It was, therefore, greeted with considerable satisfaction when Jaguar Land Rover announced that they would be siting their new engine plant there. Since

first deciding in 2011 to open this state-of-the-art facility at i54 with a £355m investment to create 750 jobs, Jaguar Land Rover has expanded its commitment to create what will be a landmark manufacturing facility employing 1,400 directly. JLR Executive director Mike Wright said i54 was a major part of the company’s long term plans. “Since the original announcement was made in 2011 we’ve been able to look at our plans, look at potential for our products around the world and as a result of that analysis we’ve decided to put even more capacity into the engine manufacturing centre, invest more money and create more jobs,” Not only will the plant itself conform to the latest digital manufacturing standards but the whole concept has been designed with efficiency and optimum use of the site in mind. Workers’ shift patterns at the new facility will amount ot virtual round the clock operations while traffic to and from the factory will use the specially constructed M54 slip road.

With global sales rising, Jaguar Land Rover is set to take UK manufacturing to new levels of efficiency and low environmental impact. Staffordshire County Council leader Philip Atkins said: “This is a fantastic spur for regional growth and job creation. A major business like JLR attracts further investment which we’re ready for in Staffordshire and the wider region. The benefits of the i54 South Staffordshire site are numerous, not least because of its central location, communication links and skilled workforce on its doorstep. It’s close to the home of Jaguar and means we’re at the heart of the automotive industry.” These two examples show how UK manufacturing with Jaguar Land Rover in the Vanguard is stepping up to plate in meeting the UK government’s challenge to rebalance the country’s economy towards more sustainable manufacturing growth.

Digital manufacturing Juergen Maier of Siemens answers some of the big questions about this fast growing technology Francis Slade

Readers of a certain age will remember in the 1980s a well-known car manufacturer with, shall we say, a ‘less than perfect’ quality image introducing robots to its advertisements. It was a brave attempt to suggest that the simple presence of robots on an otherwise unreconstructed production line would make a poor process perfect… but it didn’t. To be fair, it couldn’t; the most it could do without a thorough going reengineering of the business and process was to… well, look good for the advertising.

As Chris Aylett, CEO of the Motorsport Industry Association (MIA), put it when we met him, “The efficient use of energy has been at the heart of motorsport success since the first race. Now, this capability is of real value [across a range of industries].” It led us to wonder what technology and process transfers motorsport can bring to other advanced engineering and manufacturing programmes? “Motorsport,” explained Chris, “is really good at integrating a range of technologies, and packaging them into a confined space, a capability increasingly sought after [in the drive to minimise size and weight].”

even come close is speed of response. When a race car needs a modification developed, it cannot wait until next year: it has to be developed, tested, built, delivered and on the car for the next race in one or two weeks. Motorsport cannot tolerate time loss or failure to deliver and firms in the supply chain understand those rules. “Deadlines,” as Chris confirmed, “are absolute and you cannot be in the supply chain if you can’t live with this.” As a result, the motorsport supply chain is well ordered, absolutely reliable and increasingly valued by other engineering functions such as aerospace and defence. That’s not to say that the rigour of motorsport engineering hasn’t brought difficulties when introduced into conventional supply chains. For one thing, the workforce needs to agree to working when and for as long as required… not by the clock.

to their prototypes, it’s unheard of, outside of motorsport, to put a prototype in front of millions of critics in the most demanding environment to mostly fail by the standards of the sport. So motorsport engineers are different inasmuch as they embrace and learn from their very public failures. As much as the engineering, it’s the quality of process that makes motorsport so responsive. Engineers, whether in OEMs or in the supply chain, have long learned to cut to the chase, quickly define the problem and get on with the solution.

Aggressive R&D

They’re also different in the critical area of research and development. Motorsport re-invests 30% of sales in R&D (twice that of the pharmaceutical sector) which means very high levels of investment but with no government support: the money all comes from investors so that, again, Demanding environment Motorsport doesn’t manufacture much in volume decisions can be implemented very rapidly in an because every vehicle is a prototype, engineered aggressive process that will take any technology, Speed of response But the thing at which motorsport excels to a for the challenge of the next race circuit. But, if it’s even new and untried, and move it quickly to the degree that makes you wonder why others cannot unusual for most engineers to allow any access testing stage.

Materials and design That’s certainly true of materials engineering where, as Chris Aylett explained, “The only materials we use are lightweight and even they’ll be too heavy tomorrow.” And with advanced materials engineering comes leading edge structural design. Chris again: “The most forceful result of good design has been the fall in the death rate among drivers.” Motorsport engineers are really good at designing structures that can absorb and dissipate high quantities of energy in very little time. Racing cars are endlessly becoming more energy efficient with no loss of performance. We already know that cars lining up on the grid for the first race of the 2014-15 season will have a new engine specification; smaller, more powerful and more efficient. That kind of engineering is bound to be in demand in many areas: as is the ability to harvest kinetic energy from braking. Race cars have been hybrids for some years now using Kinetic Energy Recovery Systems (KERS) to harvest energy lost when braking and re-use in designated areas as a power boost. Motorsport companies are already supplying this technology to the manufacturers of trains, buses and trams as more and more engineering and manufacturing sectors realise the value to be gained from working with engineers used to creating machines of the highest quality and reliability for the most demanding application in the full glare of the public gaze and with often only days to develop changes.

70 | BRIGGS BAC

Single seat; multiple motoring qualities The BAC Mono does not compromise on anything; design, engineering or performance Peter Dunwell

The ultimate car Looking around the market today, sometimes it’s easy to lose sight of the fact that cars can be enjoyable. That said, nobody is going to accuse the people who make the BAC Mono of ignoring the pleasure of a great driving experience. Everybody at Briggs Automotive Company (BAC) Ltd seems focused on delivering the ultimate driver’s car and it seems they have succeeded. The Mono is a road car but with its single central seat layout, and body design that draws on classic Formula racing cars and the F-22 Raptor jet fighter, it is just as much at home on the track. Most importantly, it is the product of British Engineering and is built in Liverpool.

Well designed and engineered While this is no car for motoring wimps, it is a car in which safety has been engineered into the steel safety shell, FIA Formula One levels of rollover protection (ROPS), drive train and control engineering to the highest standard and a build that makes it wholly legal for road use. Even the nose serves as both crash protection and a storage compartment; though don’t expect to fit your weekly supermarket shop in here.

The electronics and instrumentation puts all controls that the driver needs on the steering wheel to compliment the Mono’s handling, balance and outstanding grip. Every aspect of the car has been carefully thought through so that everything on the car has a purpose in a functional driver’s package.

car but with its single central seat layout,

Building in Liverpool Having won a string of accolades including the Top Gear ‘Stig’s Car of the Year’ award, the Mono is set fair for success and will now be built in Liverpool. As well as creating almost 60 high end manufacturing jobs and apprenticeships by 2014 (ready to produce more than 100 cars a year from 2015) BAC will also be seeking to source as much as possible from local suppliers.

Driver involvement Perhaps the last word should go to the Mono’s designer, Ian Briggs: “I wanted [the Mono] to be high tech and totally fresh in its approach, a car for people who want to feel a connection with their car and be really involved in the character of how it drives.”

Daring to be different The Niche Vehicle Network supports innovative, agile vehicle builders not afraid to think outside of the normal bounds Francis Slade

methods, they are better able to use different techniques, materials and structures, and from that has grown the specialist supply chain.

Coming into their own Vehicle builders in this niche space have really come into their own with the drive to develop low carbon vehicles. NVN has a programme of low carbon development to build on the particular skills and expertise in niche vehicle builders for using new and ‘exotic’ materials and technologies to make vehicles lighter. Also, the sector has a lot of experience working with electric propulsion and is well versed in the increasingly important technologies of battery development and energy storage. And, because the sector is less risk averse (a lot of what they do is expected to be experimental) firms are able to develop technology testers faster and without the attendant risk of market speculation that would worry large volume producers.

Using a strong provenance for today’s needs There have always been niche vehicles, that is to say, vehicles built in limited and often small numbers to meet specific needs. However with regulation and homologation driving users to opt for adaptations of standard vehicles, niche vehicle makers have had to look to their strengths in order to secure a place in the world. In the drive for low carbon, lightweight, low or zero emission vehicles, niche builders have found a significant role in a sector that, as far as volume vehicle manufacturers are concerned, is not always good at trying a range of options and developing unconventional solutions. Niche vehicle builders are good at bespoke development.

Niche Vehicle Network In the Niche Vehicle Network (NVN), specialist vehicle builders have come together for strength of numbers and, as Viv Stephens, Programme Director at the network explains, “For collaboration across the sector. Trade bodies tend to focus on big companies whereas niche vehicle makers are largely small to medium enterprises and we have developed a community where members share knowledge and expertise. It’s not just for vehicle builders but also for the specialist supply chain and technologies supporting the sector.”

Similarly, none of the companies are large enough to be able to support large R&D facilities such as wind tunnels so, Viv Stephens explains, “The Niche Vehicle Network will hire [for instance] wind tunnel facilities at MIRA for a day to be shared between several niche vehicle builders.”

Supply chain excellence

Specialist and bespoke

So, what does Viv Stephens think is the key to the sector’s continued long-term success? “Niche vehicle builders need to stay different;” he explains, “develop their technical diversity, exclusivity and individuality and remember to value profit over turnover. They should stay small and keep out of the ownership of large volume manufacturers [who, whatever they say, will impose restricting practices] and must ensure that they get their fair share of UK Government funding as a sector that is particularly good for the British economy.”

Niche vehicle makers all serve markets for individual and bespoke vehicle and cars, catering to the needs of people and firms who want something different or need a vehicle for a very specific purpose. None of the businesses in the network have large sums available for development or even for manufacturing plant so they are often less mechanised and more labour intensive than volume producers. They simply do not have the production runs to justify some of the tooling. However, because of their more flexible

www.nichevehiclenetwork.co.uk 2013 | SHOWGUIDE

The sector always used a high proportion of UK content and so already has a strong supply chain which is growing to meet demand; and where there is no capability, NVN is working to develop it in a continual improvement process.

Where are we going in Auto Electronics? Freescale’s view of what of significance has happened, what is coming and what will matter tomorrow John Hancock

Environmental concerns have driven attention to fuel efficiency and harmful engine emissions leading to significant innovation, e.g. direct injection combustion engines

two areas – the environment and safety. Environmental concerns have driven attention to fuel efficiency and harmful engine emissions leading to significant innovation, e.g. direct injection combustion engines. In addition to increasing efficiency and reducing emissions it also provides a substantial performance boost especially for diesel engines. While direct injection has been revolutionising the engine, DCT (Dual Clutch Transmission) has been doing something similar to the transmission. DCT provides the convenience of an automatic transmission while providing better efficiency than a manual transmission… with only a small cost increase. Environment and safety “[Looking at safety] According to WHO We started out by asking Andy what have been the most significant developments in auto-electronics [the World Health Organisation], more than 1.2 million people died in 2010 worldwide, in the past five years? His response was that “Developments in projected to increase to 1.9 million in 2020 due the last five years have been focused on to traffic-related incidents. Advanced Driver Sometimes, if you want some information about a sector, it’s best to ask someone who knows that sector well from being a major participant over many years. That would certainly be true for Auto Electronics where developments are arriving with almost bewildering frequency. It was in that frame of mind that we met Andy Birnie, Systems Engineering Manager for the Automotive Microcontrollers Division at Freescale Semiconductor which has been providing ‘embedded processing solutions for the automotive, consumer, industrial and networking markets’ since 2004.

www.ukautoelectronics.com 2013 | SHOWGUIDE

Assistance Systems (ADAS), using radar and vision based object detection systems for low speed collision avoidance, have the potential to reduce traffic accidents by 70% [according to the] German Highways Agency.”

The next big thing With that response noted, we talked about what will be the next big thing in auto-electronics for driver support, use of vehicle, engine/power train management and in-car information and entertainment and what have been the drivers of that development? Andy was very clear in explaining that “There isn’t one big thing, there will be many big things! “In terms of safety – driver distraction is becoming a focus. To ensure the driver focuses on the highly visual task of driving, the radar/ vision ADAS features spoken of earlier will become cost effective for every car; with multiple

instantiations in the vehicle to protect against risks from every angle. Predictions from Frost & Sullivan suggest that 40% of vehicles will have some ADAS feature by 2018. “For engine efficiency – building on the success of direct injection and DCT will be new technologies to achieve even better efficiency and lower emissions to meet ever increasing regulatory requirements around the world. Complex electrical control of the valves will replace the current simple mechanical valve control. Hybrid technology will migrate down to smaller and lower cost systems with mini (as low as 5hp) and micro-hybrid systems matching the complementary optimum operating points of the electric motor and the internal combustion engine. “When it comes to in-car infotainment and displays, the driving force will be the continuation of the consumer driven graphics rich experience, with higher resolution larger displays, as well as the introduction of augmented reality for navigation systems and gesture control for media systems. “There are many enablers for these big things to happen, but they include a security solution for the connected car, that makes users feel confident, and an open source development environment that allows development of apps to run on the vehicle platform.”

Looking to the horizon This is clearly exciting stuff and so we wondered, looking further into the future, what is the single most exciting development on your horizon? “For sure the most exciting development ahead is the autonomous (or even driverless) vehicle – taking it from the R&D laboratory into a production road vehicle. [This will entail] extending the range and resolution of the radar and vision sensors, combining the results with these sensors and the information available from the real-time V2X network to build up a complete picture of the vehicles current and projected environment. [This will extend] the driving context [to] where it can be in autonomous mode from its initial restrictions, so that it becomes a part of our life, and hence significantly reduces accident rates and even modifies our commuting patterns.” What a great introduction to this burgeoning and increasingly important aspect of auto design and production from, as we said, someone who clearly knows the subject.

Printable Electronics… changing the game No longer will designers be constrained by the shapes of physical equipment when the equipment can be part of the shape Francis Slade

Game changing technology The term ‘game changer’ is often used but less often is it appropriate. In the case of printable electronics it would be hard to think of a better superlative; ‘game changer’ is an apposite term for a technology that will not only change the way electronic systems are created but also the purposes for which they can be applied. We caught up briefly with Steven Bagshaw Marketing Executive and Jon Helliwell, Director of printable Electronics at the Centre for Process Innovation to get the up-to-date information on this exciting technology. There wasn’t long so we kept our questions brief but their responses were complete, as you’ll see.

Printable Electronics for Industry 2013: What will make Printable Electronics a game changer in the Advanced Engineering sectors? Steven Bagshaw & Jon Helliwell: People’s experience with consumer products is changing as we seek the responsiveness of touch screen technology in everyday items. Car interiors now have touch screens inserted into the consoles. With printable electronics we can give designers the freedom to create thin, curved panels, containing switches, illumination and displays and integrate these into the console design. The game changer is in the ability to create bespoke designs and open new supply chain opportunities for the UK manufacturing base.

www.ukplasticelectronics.com 2013 | SHOWGUIDE

Printable electronics have the potential to be thinner, lighter and more rugged, leading to the creation of a whole new range of products such as flexible displays, large-area energy efficient lighting, printed logic and memory, sensors, batteries, low cost solar cells, and entirely new form factors for functional electronic devices. PEI 2013: Would you say that Printable Electronics is a disruptive technology and, if so, in what ways will it change the ways things are done? SB & JH: Printable electronics has the potential to change the way components are made – replacing wiring with printed circuitry and components embedded into the moulded part. As technology

develops, cost will continue to fall enabling greater use of low cost sensing. With low cost embedded sensing, parts can communicate with other components and stock control processes in the ‘internet of things’. Another key feature will be the ability of embedded sensing to enable high value, high risk components to self monitor. PEI 2013: What are the latest developments on the Printable Electronics horizon? SB & JH: There are now a wide range of printed electronic components, displays and lighting, flexible solar panels, printed batteries, printed thin film logic and memory. The next challenge is the development of high speed integration processes to enable the manufacture of high volume products at an acceptable price. This more established technology will continue adapt to new technology changes and the advent of NFC enabled smartphones will create new opportunities in providing power for highly interactive labels, for example. Whilst this is under development, printed electronics will continue to find new applications where new form factors and lightweight are advantageous in wearable sensing for health care applications, for example. PEI 2013: Anything else you’d like to mention? SB & JH: CPI is the UK’s National Centre for printable electronics focusing on design, development and prototyping for the emerging printable electronics industry. Their mission is to work with clients to bring new printable electronics products and processes to market quickly and efficiently, by offering facilities and expertise that help reduce the level of R&D risk and capital investment, while speeding up time to market. CPI is leading a consortium of major companies to create a UK supply chain to enable the widespread adoption of low cost, near field communication (NFC) devices using printable electronics. The project will build manufacturing capacity, develop manufacturing skills and demonstrate application deployment, bringing together the UK’s world-class strength in print, electronics and design in a collaborative consortium to open-up a globally competitive UK supply-chain in printed NFC components.

Printed Electronics in the UK and PELG

(Plastic Electronics Leadership Group) Many of the current activities in organic semiconductors around the world have developed from the research and inventions that took place in the 1980s at the Cavendish Laboratory in Cambridge. Their 1989 patent underpinned the 1992 founding of Cambridge Display Technology and, together with a pivotal 1990 Nature paper, launched the field of plastic electronics. Through the rest of the ‘90s early research was mainly academic with a few spin-out companies such as CDT Ltd and Plastic Logic Ltd being examples of the growing trend of academic teams looking to commercially exploit their own intellectual property. The UK’s former Department of Trade and Industry recognised the potential in this field and, from the late 90’s onwards, supported the area with collaborative research funding. As various early UK developments showed clear promise to deliver world-leading materials, processes and device opportunities this early stage funding developed into a wider range of programmes in the first decade of the 21st century. The UK’s current Technology Strategy Board continues to fund programmes in the wider area of printed electronics and, as a result, the UK now has a superb infrastructure to offer support to companies wishing to enter this space for the first time. No commercial exploitation of a new technology can be firmly established without first ensuring a solid supply chain for all necessary materials, equipment, metrology and enduser device assemblies. The focus on building the supply chain has been a key priority in the UK for the last few years, and the success of these efforts is now coming to the fore. The network of organisations belonging to the UK’s printed electronics community is burgeoning. The Plastic Electronics Leadership Group, chaired by Dr Adrian Geisow of Hewlett-Packard, co-ordinates the network between the various companies involved across the UK’s PE community and, by ensuring joined up thinking, seeks to ensure that the UK remains at the forefront of global research and development activity across the multiple application areas of printed electronics, both for domestic exploitation in the UK, for export sales of UK-manufactured materials, equipment and PE devised and for overseas licensing of the UK’s intellectual property. For further information on the UK Printed Electronics community and its capability please see The UK Plastics Electronics Capability Guide available on the website http://ukplasticelectronics.com

Well, our introduction did say it was a game changer.

Matching needs and capabilities techUK may have been rebranded but it continues to perform a valuable role for members and the businesses that need their skills Peter Dunwell

An active participant techUK (Intellect UK) is a technology trade association of 850 members created some eleven years ago from the merger of two earlier bodies, the FEI and CSSA. The association has a broad remit on behalf of members as Director Ian Osborne explains: “techUK deals with government on issues such as regulation, markets and opportunities and has become engaged in ESCO (Electronics Systems Community) launched in June 2013.” ESCO (re-named from UK Electronics Alliance – UKEA), according to its website, comprises ‘the leading trade associations and other representative bodies providing a forum for the electronic systems community to share experience, best practice and resource to address common issues and a two way communication channel with Government departments and agencies to enable them to better support our community where appropriate.’ Ian Osborne serves with government ministers and others on the ESCO council charged with “looking at how to grow electronics over the next seven or so years.” Also, techUK has a long record of productive engagement with UKTI (the UK Government’s trade and investment body) as a key partner helping identify companies to participate in trade missions as well as helping company’s setting up UK operations to source the capabilities that they need in their supply chain.

Benefits in several sectors Aerospace would be a typical area where techUK can assist members. The association has an Aerospace and Defence group to represent some of the smaller players in the supply chain in building relations with the large systems integrators and OEMs such as BAE Systems and RollsRoyce. The benefit works both ways helping integrators and OEMs to source the capabilities that they need in the UK and helping members to find outlets for their capabilities. The association works in a similar manner in

Auto Engineering with high end manufacturers and specialists such as motorsport businesses always looking out for innovations to give them a competitive edge. techUK will help them find those businesses and will ensure that they get the security and convenience of local supply chains. In other areas, such as the emergent Printable Electronics sector, techUK is not only able to help members identify where the markets for their ideas can be found but also to highlight some of the opportunities for applications. One area in which this has been the case has been with intelligent packaging but, in truth, printable electronics are set to revolutionise the ways in which so many things are done and to create new ways of doing things that might previously have been quite a challenge – smart clothing with healthcare and health monitoring capabilities would be a good example of this.

Supporting the Internet of things A term used by techUK to describe its area of operation is ‘ubiquitous connectivity and the internet of things’. This refers to an aspect of communications developments in the past ten years with mobile and wireless capabilities (including 5G), sensor networks such as that installed on the London Underground system, RFID (radio frequency identifiers), NFC (near field communications), and a host of other developments. These have enabled increasing numbers of things to interrogate and/or inform other things and systems in real time to make situational awareness and planning better informed than ever before. Again, the association helps members identify opportunities in this relatively new technology space as well as introducing large systems builder to smaller businesses whose capabilities will enhance their systems. Having rebranded itself just before the Advanced Engineering UK 2013 group of events, techUK will be adding further capabilities and extending its reach to a significantly larger audience in a major development to be announced before the end of November. A space to watch!

We use pattern recognition and sub-pixel interpolation to measure the exact displacements of selected points in an image. Targets are tracked in real time, outputting measurements frameby-frame. This technology allows for non-contact multi-point measurements of strain, rotation and displacement. A resolution better than 1/200,000 of the visible area is achievable, giving strain resolution of 5 microstrain. The system is so straightforward that after a halfday training any user can obtain accurate modulus measurements of carbon composites or displacement resolutions of 0.1mm on a bridge load test.

CONTACT: Peter Bond, Managing Director STE will be exhibiting a range of high performance Oil Mist/Oil Smoke separation systems from 3Nine AB. This unique patented technology separates oil particles from mist or coolant using a special centrifugal process. This is able to remove 99.9% of all particles down to 1 micron in size and return the liquid to the machine tool or process. Any smaller particles are processed through a HEPA H13 filter which ensures that pure air can be returned directly into the working environment 99.995% particle free. The unique benefits of the technology are that it separates instead of collecting so maintenance is minimal making life cycle operating costs substantially lower than other technologies.
