Will advanced automation technologies deliver Australia’s manufacturing renaissance?
Improving the efficiency of existing manufacturers and businesses in Australia and taking opportunities afforded by the defence procurement process will lead to a renaissance in Australian manufacturing, according to Kristian Wolf, Executive Director at the German Australian Chamber of Industry and Commerce.
Of particular interest to Kristian is collaboration between Australian and German businesses and governments to improve the efficiency of manufacturers via Advanced Manufacturing systems like Industry 4.0 and the Industrial Internet of Things, which Germany has embraced as a smarter way of working.
The German Australian Chamber of Industry and Commerce is one of the leading partners in the Automation Innovation Summit, to be held on 25 May 2016 at the Australian Technology Park in Eveleigh, Sydney. The summit will be preceded by the Profibus and Profinet Global Forum in the morning, which is free for industry attendees.
