MANTRA (The Manufacturing Technology Transporter) is a specially modified HGV packed with the latest machinery and simulators. The truck will take to the road with a dedicated team to demonstrate the manufacturing and assembly line technology of the future and help to inspire young people to take up careers in engineering. The project also aims to introduce companies to the latest production engineering technology and techniques in order to facilitate innovation and new product design, and keep UK manufacturing competitive.
