Industry 4.0 & advanced manufacturing

Industry 4.0 promises to transform manufacturing by combining automation with emerging capabilities in artificial intelligence and Internet of Things (IoT). Through the application of machine learning, new manufacturing processes can be created and existing processes optimised. Tech Lab works closely with the UTS Centre for Advanced Manufacturing and colleagues in Germany to develop new I4.0 technologies tailored to Australia’s unique industrial environment. Manufacturing is coming back!​
