The Australian Manufacturing Week, the country’s premier manufacturing solutions event, is returning to Melbourne from 9 to 12 May 2023 to feature the latest manufacturing technologies, processes, and support services and cover major topics within the industry.

Organised and run by the Australian Manufacturing Technology Institute Limited (AMTIL), AMW2023 will take the floor of the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) with over 330 organisations taking stands.

The primary focus on the first day of the show will be digital and additive manufacturing, with Richard Elving from Markforged revealing how Australian businesses are embracing 3D printing to bring manufacturing back home. 

Later in the day, CSIRO’s Cherry Chen will discuss research into functional materials for space, biomedical, and hydrogen storage applications.

The second day at AMW is particularly focused on vital resources with Women in Manufacturing as the highlight.

Wednesday’s panel of specialists will discuss professional paths and chances available for women to advance in the sector right now as part of the Future Solutions Speaker Program. 

The William Buck team will also discuss maximising the potential of the workplace, and a panel from the South East Melbourne Manufacturers Alliance (SEMMA) will next demonstrate how women are currently driving Australian manufacturing.

The AMW Future Solutions Speaker Program will switch gears on 11 May to celebrate Australian Manufacturing with an emphasis on new technology with speakers from the Victorian government, Autodesk, Bosch, ANCA, and Adobe.

The final day of AMW2023, on Friday, will honors industrial innovation and research as the Geelong Manufacturing Council’s Jennifer Conley will present some creative case studies from rural Victoria. 

Additionally, Oded VanHam will give attendees a tour of the Australian National Fabrication Facility and discuss the research being done on new materials.
