AMGC partners with MOVUS to help Australian manufacturers go digital

As many of us know, manufacturing in Australia continues to be a vital contributor to our economy, the sector continues to grow and turn out world leading products. But there is continued pressure on the sector – Are we cost competitive? Is our labour cost too high? Can we innovate? How do we grow when we don’t have the scale of overseas markets like Asia, Europe, or the Americas?

At MOVUS, we don’t focus on these types of negative issues. Our culture, our mission, is to focus on bringing our award winning, world-leading continuous condition monitoring solution to all industry – let’s do better, let’s work smarter rather than harder, let’s embrace Industry 4.0 and digital transformation rather than putting it in the too hard basket.

Bringing Awesome to Australian Manufacturing

With that in mind it’s really exciting announce that MOVUS and the Advanced Manufacturing Growth Centre (AMGC) has launched a co-funded project that will provide 50 Australian manufacturing SME’s with an opportunity to kick-start their goal of digital transformation through a 12-month subscription to our award-winning continuous condition monitoring solution FitMachine.

Helping Manufacturers Work Smarter

AMGC identified that unplanned downtime due to equipment breakdown is a problem that costs industry BUT is one that can be overcome via Industrial Internet of Things solutions like FitMachine – low cost, quick to deploy, and really simple to use.

Dr Jens Goennemann, Managing Director, AMGC added
