Cobalt Joins AMTIL

Cobalt is thrilled to announce that we’ve recently joined the Australian Manufacturing Technology industry association – or AMTIL for short.

AMTIL is the peak national body that represents manufacturing technology suppliers and users within engineering and advanced manufacturing industries.  Their reputation as a leading industry body has been demonstrated by being appointed to administer government industry grant schemes. This includes the recently announced Victorian “Build It Better” voucher grant*.

Cobalt understands finding the right manufacturing partner(s) can make or break a project.  According to Cobalt Principal, Warwick Brown, “One of Cobalt’s strengths is helping our clients expertly and independently find excellent suppliers especially when transitioning from design/development to production”.  And while Cobalt has decades of real world experience and an established network of suppliers, our AMTIL membership will allow us to expand our network and push our production support capabilities into emerging and advanced manufacturing.

Cobalt’s ‘Manufacturing Technology User’ membership provides us (and our clients) with access to:

  • Extensive manufacturing networks
  • Advanced manufacturing grants
  • Industry events and tradeshows (AusTech etc.)
  • Marketing and exposure (AMT Magazine etc.)
  • Breaking manufacturing news
  • AMTIL programs and platforms
  • Government representation

In addition, through AMTIL events and programmes, our engineers and designers can keep abreast of additive and advanced manufacturing technologies, ensuring we apply the latest thinking to our client projects.

We look forward to the near future with AMTIL.

* AMTIL and the Victorian Government have joined forces to provide small to medium manufacturing businesses in Victoria with funding of up to $20,000 to undertake redesign/reengineering projects to increase their adoption of additive manufacturing technology. The Build It Better grant supports Victorian companies wishing to explore additive manufacturing technology. The grant runs for three years, starting from October 2018; a total grant budget of $1.3 million over three years is available for Victorian businesses. Find out more at:
