The Manufacturing Technology Centre is pleased to announce an exciting new partnership with digital engineering specialist PTC, who join as a Tier 2 Member.
PTC and the MTC share a common interest in the delivery of smart factory innovation to UK manufacturers, and the MTC is embracing PTC’s software and expertise in this area.
PTC enables global manufacturers to digitally transform their business with software solutions that enable them to accelerate product and service innovation, improve operational efficiency, and increase workforce productivity.
In combination with an extensive partner network, PTC provides customers with flexible options to deploy technology and drive digital transformation – either on premises, in the cloud, or via its pure SaaS platform. PTC UK is headquartered in Farnborough, Hampshire and has over 200 UK based employees.
Speaking about the new partnership, Paul Haimes, VP of Pre-Sales at PTC said:
PTC decided to become an MTC member after the organisations collaborated on smart factory projects. These include VIVAR, a project for MTC members that developed augmented manufacturing operations, and DigiProp, which created an Industry 4.0 development environment for an aerospace consortium.
The organisations are now planning to collaborate in the area of model-based definition via the MTC’s Core Research Programme, and to open up access to Industry 4.0 technologies to UK manufacturers via the Smart Factory Innovation Hub initiative.
