Factory tour details

The Autodesk Technology Centre in Birmingham, UK, specializes in demonstrating new additive, subtractive, and fabrication processes that are transforming the way things are made.

Working with customers from a variety of industries, ranging from automotive and aerospace to consumer products and industrial devices, the centre provides a space to explore advanced manufacturing techniques and computer-aided manufacturing solutions, often through production work commissioned by customers.

Here, teams examine how automation–enabled by new manufacturing processes–is unlocking a new era of design freedom where it’s possible to manufacture increasingly complex designs. This centre is part of Autodesk’s global network of facilities that helps bring to life solutions aimed towards solving some of the world’s most complex manufacturing and fabrication challenges, empowering our customers to make anything.
