Partnering with Callaghan Innovation
For the last 3+ years, Beca has partnered with Callaghan Innovation to deliver the Industry 4.0 Demonstration Network, a Government initiative to help New Zealand businesses realise the benefits of a range of digital technologies that will enhance manufacturing performance, output, monitoring and control. The Mobile Showcase, a free, interactive event that gives people the opportunity to engage, learn and imagine what is possible with technologies like digital twins, internet of things, collaborative robotics, artificial intelligence, AR, VR, and 3D printing, is led by Beca. Beca also contributed significantly to the development of the Smart Factory Tour, an interactive session with Nautech Electronics that shares how they have incorporated Industry 4.0 technologies in their business to improve efficiency, solve common manufacturing issues and connect their processes.
In addition to the Industry 4.0 Demonstration Network, Beca is also a Service Provider for Callaghan Innovation’s Digital Lean Programme.
