In a move that showcased Austech’s capabilities in the defence sector, Austech (an Ampcontrol Group company) exhibited at BAE Systems’ recent Factory of the Future themed technology event.
The one-day event is aligned with BAE Systems’ Digital Shipyard and Industry 4.0 initiatives to facilitate digital engagement across all aspects of the Hunter Class frigate program. Limited to 20 key suppliers and with BAE representatives attending, the invitation-only event took place on Tuesday 23 July in Melbourne.
Ampcontrol attendees included Rohit Sandlesh, Austech Site Manager, Paul Reynolds, Ampcontrol Business Manager Electronics, and John Watson, Ampcontrol Automation and Digital Technology Manager.
“Ampcontrol is a big player both in specialised electrical and electronics manufacturing in Australia and globally. With 50 plus years of experience, we have the capability to offer highly sophisticated digital solutions. Our capabilities are also transferable to commercial maritime and naval defence industries and we offer comprehensive national service,” said Sandlesh.
“This defence event provided us with a great opportunity to showcase our expertise and broad capability in harsh and challenging environments. It also offered some great partnering possibilities.”
