The Manufacturing Technologies Association (MTA) is a not-for-profit organisation representing the UK’s engineering-based manufacturing technology suppliers (both manufacturers and importers). Sectors include machine tools, specialist software, metrology, additive manufacturing, surface engineering, robotics and many others. 

Its members are key to the competitiveness and sustainability of UK manufacturing. The Association is also responsible for the national manufacturing exhibition, MACH, which every two years, brings together more than 35,000 people representing the elite of the UK manufacturing community. The next MACH exhibition takes place at the NEC in Birmingham between 4-8th April 2022.


Third Wave Systems is the premier Computer-Aided Engineering (CAE) provider for the companies that machine. Our modeling products and services are used by progressive companies to dramatically reduce costs of machined components, accelerate design cycles, improve part quality, and get to market faster.

Our experimentally validated material modeling technology, coupled with advanced Explicit-Dynamic Finite Element Analysis (FEA), gives engineers and other users vastly more information than trial-and-error testing alone. This enables them to make better decisions. Our talented team of engineers is passionate about materials, machining, modeling, and helping support Bold Innovation. This gives leadership at our customers the peace of mind that their people have the technology and support to help drive their top and bottom lines.
