About this event

SMART SOLUTIONS USING DIGITAL TWIN TECHNOLOGY

Interested in finding out more about improvements in automated manufacturing, process efficiency and productivity? Digital twins — virtual representations of physical objects that evolve with real-time data — can help organisations significantly save money and time with minimal process change and relatively small investment. This smart technology can enable companies to test ideas, inform decisions, and predict outcomes without having to risk real objects.

Join us at our next Tech Tuesday Forum, where Dr Jan Polzer, Senior Lecturer from the University of Auckland’s Department of Mechanical Engineering, will discuss how digital twins can help improve efficiencies in manufacturing and other processes. Using case studies, he will share his experiences in steel and wood processing, along with discussions of how New Zealand businesses can benefit from implementing digital twin technology and other smart automation technologies.
