Case Study – Get Metalwork And Keep It!


Australian manufacturing is feeling the pinch. We all have clients, suppliers and media informing us the country is doing it tough. Precision sheet metal business, machine shops, and fabricators found that to be successful they must be efficiently productive before anything else to prosper and grow in these challenging markets.

Too many businesses continue to use older technology and methodology in their production and these companies are feeling pressure on their profitability. Many of these businesses started producing small volumes and building over a longer period of time with old machines and labour-intensive processes. What has been found in this method takes too long and can’t be sustained over time that no longer works against emerging low-cost countries.

Australian precision metalworking and engineering businesses appear to be holding onto CNC machinery for 15-20 years. When Australian businesses compare to natural competitors in neighbouring countries like China, Malaysia, Taiwan, Korea and Japan they rarely, if ever, find these businesses operating 15-20-year-old machines. What is accepted in Asian manufacturing is that they cannot remain competitive unless the businesses are employing the latest technologies.
