MANTRA – the Manufacturing Technology Transporter

If you’ve ever dreamed of interacting with a fully-automated robot or dismantling a jet engine then the National Festival of Making has something special in store for you!

The 34-ton Manufacturing Technology Transporter (or ‘MANTRA’) arrives at the festival with a world-beating array of technology from the Advanced Manufacturing Research Centre of Sheffield University. Supported by BAE, the height of innovation is arriving in style and is a festival highlight not to be missed!
