FoodTech Speaker Series

In business today, it is all about future proofing your operation. Manufacturing has become more and more digitised. Using information to understand and predict trends, future throughput, offer predictive maintenance and ensure optimum plant uptime for your organisation.

Australian manufacturing needs to overcome the IoT learning curve and catch up to international manufacturing at a rapid speed.

The Open IIoT group was recently formed by global groups SMC Corporation, NORD Drivesystems, Balluff, Beckhoff Automation, Universal Robots and ZI-Argus. The group aims to help manufacturers get ahead of the curve as soon as possible.
