Melbourne Convention Exhibition Centre
MELBOURNE | AUSTRALIA

All under ONE roof at ONE show.


The ONE event that showcases the latest innovations, technologies and equipment in the advanced manufacturing sector. Explore new opportunities, meet and network with industry leaders and technology experts, all under ONE roof at ONE show.

The Australian Manufacturing Technology Institute Limited (AMTIL) has announced the Melbourne dates of the Australian Manufacturing Week (AMW), an industry exhibition encompassing all aspects of manufacturing in Australia.

AMW will take place at the Melbourne Convention and Exhibition Centre (MCEC) Melbourne, Australia on 9 to 12 May 2023.

AMTIL’s aim is for Australian Manufacturing Week to be more than just an exhibition. It will instead act as the centrepiece of a week-long celebration of manufacturing in Australia today.

There are plenty of reason to visit Australian Manufacturing week:

  • Be a witness and a part of technological evolution.
  • Be the first to experience innovative technologies, latest machinery.
  • Meet and network with the innovators and trendsetting individuals who spearhead this technological revolution.
  • Interact with peers and share ideas.
  • Gain firsthand exposure to the companies who are at the forefront of technological excellence.
  • See all the key industry brands all in one place at the same time

Australian Manufacturing Week showcases 7 product zones

AUSTECH MACHINE TOOLS ZONE

Austech Machine Tools is specifically targeted at the metalworking, machine tool and ancillary market in Australia.

Austech covers advanced manufacturing products and processes including:

  • CNC Machinery, Lathes, Mills
  • Contract Manufacturing/Precision Machining
  • Cutting Tools, Tooling and Tool Holding
  • Forming and Fabricating Machines
  • Plasma, Laser, Waterjet and Ultrasonic Machines
  • Ancillary equipment suppliers

ADDITIVE MANUFACTURING ZONE

The Additive Manufacturing Zone will spotlight the latest advances in 3D printing. It includes Additive Manufacturing users, suppliers, and supporters. The process of 3D printing was first patented by Charles Hull in 1986, as stereolithography, and the additive manufacturing industry began as a ‘rapid prototyping process’.

The innovations brought about by this technology have been ground-breaking. Today the precision, repeatability, and material range of 3D printing has extended its use into boat and building construction, through to nanotech.

AUSTRALIAN MANUFACTURERS PAVILION

The Australian Manufacturers Pavilion showcases the capabilities of Australia’s precision engineering and advanced manufacturing industry.
The Australian Manufacturers Pavilion is where AMW celebrates the very best in Australian manufacturing, providing a showcase for some of this country’s most accomplished component manufacturers, precision engineering firms, toolmakers, advanced manufacturers, and general engineering companies.

MANUFACTURING SOLUTIONS ZONE

The Manufacturing Solutions Zone offers optimised solutions to the most common challenges experienced by manufacturers. From materials handling and warehousing to integrated manufacturing and safety solutions.

The manufacturing industry would not be able to function effectively without a diverse array of ancillary technologies and support services.

The Manufacturing Solutions Zone is where you can find answers, incorporating everything from equipment for materials handling and logistics, and safety products, through to the latest software for streamlining manufacturing operations, and specialist service providers in areas such as law, finance, and skills, training, and recruitment.

ROBOTICS & AUTOMATION ZONE

The Robotics & Automation Zone will feature the latest state-of-the-art equipment and processes for the optimisation of manufacturing operations. Robots are practical technologies, with artificially intelligent software brains, created and designed by engineers to refine, manufacture, and move Australian manufacturing ahead.

While countless works of science fiction have depicted robots as sources of wonder or menace, the reality today is much more common, with modern robots liberating human workers from an ever-growing array of repetitive and dangerous tasks.

WELD & AIR SOLUTIONS ZONE

The Weld & Air Solutions Zone will highlight advanced welding processes and provide high-quality interactive experiences that demonstrate developments and applications in the welding sector. The earliest examples of welding stem from the Bronze and Iron Ages in Europe and the Middle East. According to the ancient Greek historian Herodotus, the sculptor Glaucus of Chios “single-handedly invented iron welding”.

Today, robot welding is commonplace in industrial settings, and researchers continue to develop new welding methods and gain greater understanding of weld quality.

PLASTICS TECHNOLOGY PAVILION

The Plastics Technology Pavilion is your hands-on opportunity to see and feel the latest in plastics machinery, mould-making technologies, recycling materials, and the many plastics manufacturing processes.

This area will cover injection and blow moulding, extrusion, thermoforming, and compounding, mould making and toolmaking, and plastic technology processes.
