GTMA AT MACH 2014

FEATURED SUPPLIERS

GTMA will be showcasing what it terms

"a unique turnkey solution for procurement" at this year's MACH exhibition.

It will be part of the GTMA Pavilion (Hall 4,

Stand 4454) which will host 10 supplier

companies and a special area dedicated to

the UK Tooling Alliance (UKTA) procurement

initiative.

As well as the GTMA suppliers in the Pavilion

another 40 from the association are taking

individual stands - making it one of the

biggest and most impressive turnouts for

many years. Many are launching new or

enhanced products and services at the show.

CEO Julia Moore says: "As a UK-based

trade association representing leading

companies in precision engineering, rapid

product development, toolmaking, tooling

technologies, metrology and other critical

manufacturing related products and services, MACH provides

us with the ideal

opportunity to highlight the projects the

association has developed and to showcase

the skills of the members."

There are two key projects being highlighted

by the GTMA at the event at the NEC,

Birmingham (April 7-11). As well as the

recently launched UKTA, the association will

also be promoting the further developments

and commercialisation of the Incremental

Sheetmetal Forming (ISF) technology project.

UKTA aims to offer customers a unique

turnkey solution for procurement. CEO Julia

Moore points out that the new alliance will

provide a well-resourced and versatile capability to customers, supporting the growing

trend

for OEMs to use local suppliers and services.

It comprises of a number of toolmakers with

a variety of capacity and technical capabilities to present

a unified credible supplier

front with far more to offer than any single

company. Supporting the toolmakers, which

have a wide range of expertise and the ability to handle tools ranging from

micro to 10

tonnes capacity, it will secure projects and

engage them in Early Supplier Involvement

(ESI) and introduce what is termed a 'total

care package' at the design development

stage.

"The aim of the UKTA is to achieve a 'right
