By 4Manufacturing(R) 07/07/2020

KTP between Beverston Engineering and Liverpool John Moores University (team led by former KTP Associates) already yielding positive impacts at half way stage.

Beverston Engineering Ltd is working with the Departments of the Built Environment and Electronics and Electrical Engineering at Liverpool John Moores University on a three-year Knowledge Transfer Partnership to transform the business by embedding Industry 4.0 technologies into their manufacturing capability. The project is currently at the halfway stage and already having a positive impact on all partners involved.

At the forefront of the precision component manufacturing industry (aerospace, pharmaceuticals, oil & gas) for almost 47 years, Beverston Engineering has experienced the dramatic changes driven by the emergence of new technologies from the advent of the internet to the widespread adoption of CNC (Computer Numerical Control) machinery & CAD (Computer Aided Design). 

The company joined forces with Liverpool John Moores University through LCR 4.0, a scheme to transform manufacturing business in the Liverpool City Region through digital innovation, helping SMEs to increase productivity by supporting the development of smarter processes, products and supply chains. 

LJMU has a long-term commitment to KTP, having run around 140 projects since the scheme began in 1975, and is seeking to advance the UK’s global leadership in the Internet of Things technologies.
