A report by the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre shows that top-performing manufacturers have an automation rate on average 1.3 times more than that of less successful companies. Adding automation and robots to a production system has the potential to drive a step change in Australia's manufacturing competitiveness and productivity.
The Automation & Robotic Zone helps discover cutting edge new technologies and find solutions to manufacturers' automation challenges. The conference program will help understand and gain knowledge in manufacturing automation, expansion of robotics, and current challenges and opportunities of this field.
