The TMI operates in one of Australia's most dynamic innovation ecosystems, combining education, training and research facilities, mature global and local companies and sector leading start-ups.

South Australia's push into advanced manufacturing and adoption of the global Industry 4.0 agenda will be boosted by the launch of Tonsley Manufacturing Innovation Hub (TMI) on Friday 9th February.

Located in the award-winning Tonsley Innovation Precinct (the former site of Mitsubishi's automotive manufacturing in Australia), TMI is being driven by Flinders University, the South Australian Government and the Manufacturing Co-operative Research Centre.

It will tap into the work of mature global companies, local enterprises and start-ups already located at Tonsley including Siemens, Zeiss Vision, ZEN Energy and Sage Automation, but extend its reach into the State's fast-growing defence industry and the advanced manufacturing sector nationally.

Tonsley Manufacturing Innovation Hub will play a catalytic role in promoting the understanding and application of the Industry 4.0 agenda, including robotics and automation in highly networked and flexible cloud-based production systems.
