MESA Aims:

The aim of the MESA UK SIG is to give UK manufacturing companies, information technology hardware and software suppliers, system integrators, consulting service providers, analysts, editors, academics and students  the opportunity to learn and share MOM best practise, as we head into these 'interesting times' with Smart Manufacturing, Industrial internet of Things and Industry 4.0

MESA International is a 'not for profit' community striving to help industry improve business results using information technology and management best practices.

WMG Tour Contents:

International Manufacturing Centre

3xD Drive-in, Driver-in-the-loop, multi-axis driving simulator for autonomous, smart and connected vehicles
Remote laser welding
Automotive composites centre
Material characterisation
Robotics and automation
Machining
Centre for Imaging, Metrology and Additive Technologies (CiMAT) (Full vehicle CMM, CT scanning and ALM machines)

Energy Innovation Centre

Battery scale-up line and dry room
Cell test and characterisation facility
Climatic chamber for emachine and vehicle pack testing
Twin dynamometer vehicle energy facility
High-frequency (shaker) testing
Aggressive testing centre

Session Format:

These events are intended to be interactive, two way information exchanges amongst experts (and those wishing to become experts) in the field.  For future events we would particularly like to hear from Manufacturers who wish to share their experiences and opinions on best practises, or directions in which industry desperately needs to move.

Until we have established a strong SIG in the UK, we will invite non-MESA members to attend too. We hope that you will attend meetings and share/learn with like-minded senior professionals in the MOM field.
