We supported manufacturers to adopt digitalisation to drive future success, this allowed our partners to realise true productivity and create strong customer relationships. Whether it was streamlining production processes, reducing waste or delivering better quality products faster – ultimately we enabled improvements with technology that will gave manufacturers the competitive edge.

West Midlands 5G (WM5G) partnered with AE Aerospace Birmingham Limited and The Manufacturing Technology Centre (MTC) to test out 5G and some of its key use cases within the manufacturing sector. AE Aerospace Birmingham was the first UK SME to deploy a 5G private network. They undertook three 5G-enabled use cases that have the potential to transform manufacturing productivity.

The MTC launched its first 5G-enabled demonstrator system to trial the technology, featuring 5G-connected robotics, computer vision and edge computing. The trial showcased how an automated inspection process, connected via 5G, can prove how intelligent automation and advanced connectivity will enable manufacturers to maximise productivity and utilise inspection technology, whilst reducing footprint and product waste.
