C-TEC celebrates engineering
14 February 2017
C-TEC HAS teamed up with the Institution of Engineering and Technology (IET) in a bid to stimulate interest in engineering.
A joint C-TEC/IET celebration of engineering day attracted a host of delegates keen to know more about UK manufacturing. Held at C-TEC’s Challenge Way Headquarters in Wigan, the CPD-certified event gave guests a unique insight into the 35-year history of the life-safety equipment manufacturer and an overview of the IET’s mission to inspire, inform and influence the global engineering community.
Presentations included virtual 3D design backed up by physical testing and tooling, a timeline of the design, development and certification of a visual alarm device and a brief history of fire alarms.
Delegates were invited to watch demonstrations of state-of-the-art JUKI surface mount machines placing components at an astonishing rate of 60,000 an hour and visit the training facilities where C-TEC trains over 1000 engineers a year. For more information, visit www.c-tec.com
