The Australian manufacturing sector is navigating increasingly rapid changes in industry dynamics as more technological advancements are adopted worldwide.
In the precision-demanding realm of micromoulding, the selection of appropriate materials is not merely a step in the manufacturing process, it’s the cornerstone upon which the performance and reliability of the final product rest.
Across the continually evolving manufacturing landscape, the integration of automation solutions continues to move quickly. For metal Additive Manufacturing (AM) processes the same is true. However, the post processing of metal parts, which is critical for successful outcomes, has been largely overlooked causing serious bottlenecks in the process chain — until now.
The manufacturing sector outlook for 2024 remains cautious amidst several challenges. Fiscal tightening, inflation, and geopolitical instability could undermine growth in 2024, and if favourable economic trends start to unwind, the risk of a downturn looms large.
It is undeniable that 2023 has been a transformative year for the Australian manufacturing sector as it navigates through numerous challenges throughout the year.
