Engineering students visit AJT Equipment

A group of engineering students from the City University London recently visited AJT Equipment Ltd site at Brierley Hill to film a Chain Breaking in slow motion. The students were also given a tour of the site where they were able to see at first hand a range of high-profile manufacturing activities.

Trope is a creative collaboration made between artists Carol MacGillivray and Bruno Mathez based in London. They are involved in an art exhibition at the Kirkaldy Testing Museum called 'Chain Reaction'. 

This visit was the focus and inspiration for their exhibition. Their feedback was that everyone had a great time being involved in two processes that they have never experiences before: a chain breaking motion and filming with 'lights, cameras, action'.

By the words of Bruno Mathez "the welcoming and help from AJT Equipment team was extremely appreciated by everyone"
