Description

Gateway to Advanced Manufacturing
Explore RMIT’s Advanced Manufacturing Precinct

While advanced manufacturing technologies such as automation, smart robotics, additive manufacturing and augmented and virtual reality offer undeniable economic benefits, many manufacturers are still unsure how to operationalise the technologies to benefit their business.

RMIT’s Advanced Manufacturing Precinct houses some of the most advanced manufacturing technologies available including metal and polymer 3D printers, offering businesses, academics and students access to cutting-edge equipment, software and technical expertise. With a strong focus on additive manufacturing, the precinct is a gateway - a stepping stone – for manufacturers to adopt, develop and exploit innovative concepts to build functional prototypes.

Join us on an exploratory tour of the Advanced Manufacturing Precinct (+ VX Lab) to learn how you can take advantage of RMIT’s advanced technologies and expertise for your business.
