How manufacturing businesses can successfully partner with universities to adopt advanced manufacturing technologies

As part of the NSW Advanced Manufacturing Industry Development Strategy, the NSW Government is partnering with the NSW Smart Sensing Network and the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre Ltd to deliver the ‘Successfully Adopting Smart Sensing Technologies’ series.

Yesterday we hosted the first of the series at Western Sydney Launch Pad – discussing how manufacturing businesses can successfully partner with universities to adopt advanced manufacturing technologies that enhance their competitiveness and resilience.

Check out two of the case studies below:

Launch Pad Case Study: The impact of Academic Partnerships for LA Services

David believes that engineering excellence is the foundation of the long term prosperity of Australia. Without this standard of engineering across all disciplines, we cannot design and manufacture the equipment and tools that will deliver jobs and a continuation of our standard of living for our children.

LA Services has for the last 40 years added to Australia’s productive capacity. We have consistently provided bespoke equipment that delivers operational productivity and efficiency to our customers that enables them to compete on the world stage.

As GM of this small family-owned manufacturing business, I am proud of the opportunity to have made a contribution, and look forward to continuing to do so, while maintaining my passion for hands-on engineering.

Learn how David and LA Services was able to leverage the knowledge and connections of Western Sydney University to develop new world class technology and equipment for their customers.
