Sheffield showcases world-class manufacturing technology offering at TRAM 2015

13 October 2015

Leading manufacturing technology experts converge in South Yorkshire next month, when Sheffield City Region hosts the global metalworking industry’s premier aerospace conference, TRAM 2015 at the Magna Science Adventure Centre.

TRAM is an international aerospace conference and table top exhibition focused on transferring advanced manufacturing technologies to the business leaders, managers and engineers who lead or play a key role in a facility that serves the aerospace sector.

Launched in 2009 by Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre (AMRC), part of University of Sheffield, TRAM has for the last two years, been co-located with the International Manufacturing Technology Show (IMTS) in Chicago.

Places at the conference and the associated exhibition have been filling up fast, but there are still some opportunities for delegates and exhibitors to register by visiting

Speakers include top executives and technologists from leading global aerospace companies Boeing and Airbus, machine and cutting tool manufacturers, materials and metrology companies as well as leading academics and engineers involved in the cutting edge of research and development.

TRAM is being organised by the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre, the Association for Manufacturing Technology, Gardner Business Media and the Royal Aeronautical Society.

The conference programme is a collaboration between industry, academia and the media, spotlighting the latest trends in aerospace manufacturing.


AMRC commercial director, Adrian Allen, said: “TRAM will not only give companies in the aerospace supply chain a vital insight into developing technologies, it also gives this region a chance to showcase the skills and capabilities that make it a world leader for advanced manufacturing.”
