Australia’s premier advanced precision manufacturing and machine tool exhibition, Austech 2012 is now open for bookings.
Companies are invited to secure their stand for the 2012 show, which will once again be aligned with National Manufacturing Week (NMW) at the Sydney Showground from 8 to 11 May 2012.
Presented by AMTIL , Austech is a leading trade show for the sector, offering an opportunity to various industries to display products and services throughout all production areas in Australia, from machine tools to precision tools, automation components to customised systems and additive manufacturing techniques.
While the machine tool industry remains cautious when it comes to capacity upsizing, AMTIL CEO and exhibition Director Shane Infanti expects demand to increase and to be further boosted by Austech 2012. However, he also encourages Government to implement measures to create incentives for investment in new technology.
As Austech plays its part in showcasing the latest technology and provides a stimulus for investment, he believes a Government program based on accelerated depreciation or any other incentive to invest in capital could provide the final key.
While Australia continues to be globally competitive in the design and manufacture of products, Mr Infanti says that the country is slowly falling below par in their investment in technology.
While the Government has an important role to play in reversing this trend, AMTIL runs several initiatives and projects aiming to improve the performance and output of Australia’s advanced manufacturing industry by helping companies to fully integrate new technology or processes into their business operations.
Austech forms a central part of these initiatives and is a ‘must-attend’ event for every manufacturer looking for efficient technology to be competitive on the global market.
