IBSA Manufacturing was pleased to tour the R. E. Davison and Gloda Manufacturing facilities in Sydney.
The tour offered an opportunity to learn about composite thermosetting resin moulding techniques and see compression moulding in action. The team were also able to appreciate how metal tooling components are made and how deep drawn stainless steel components are manufactured.
The site tour also provided an opportunity to see innovation in job roles with technicians having to operate processing manufacturing equipment and when appropriate, also assist with tooling work.
Innovation is also prevalent across small and medium manufacturing enterprises in Australia. Australian manufacturers often need to think laterally and find inventive ways to produce new, world class products and components. This ability to innovate will be critical to the sector remaining competitive.
