The future of advanced manufacturing was on display on March 30th in the successful 2022 Advanced Manufacturing Showcase. Jointly presented by Deakin University, MEMKO and Dassault Systèmes, the event saw over 120 experts, manufacturers, engineers and key industry players gather at Deakin University in Waurn Ponds, Geelong.
The event’s key theme was supporting businesses by accelerating their ideas into innovative manufacturing solutions, while creating future manufacturing jobs through a sustainable, value-added economy focus that is commercially successful and positively impacts communities in regional Victoria.
A key highlight of the event was the technology ‘playground’, featuring high-tech manufacturing displays from 7 different companies and displaying industry leading solutions for the workforce of the future.
Mark Curnow, Deakin’s ManuFutures Director, launched two new 2022 initiatives. ManuFutures Ignite, an advanced manufacturing program to support entrepreneurs and start-ups to grow concepts into production, and ManuFutures Engage, a program that includes cutting edge gap analysis using the highly-regarded futuremap tool to deliver a roadmap for emerging technologies and new business models. Both programs offer a doorway to Deakin’s advanced capabilities and equipment as well as multidisciplinary experts and the multimillion-dollar ManuFutures facility.
Miro Miletic and Brenton Dodd from MEMKO shared on the role of digital platforms in advanced manufacturing, and Nirajit Syamal, Dassault Systèmes, illustrated a day in the life of advanced virtual manufacturers.
