About Digital Manufacturing Innovation Hub Wales - DMIW

DMIW The hub within the Waterton Technology Centre has developed a CPS/Industry 4.0 Smart Teaching/Learning Factory environment which is equipped with leading-edge hardware and software to demonstrate best practices.

The Digital Manufacturing Innovation Hub for Wales (DMIW) was set up to provide simulation environments for Industry 4.0 Applications and Methods. It originated as a testing ground for new technologies and finally it became an experimental hub with the I4MS initiative (supporting ICT Innovation and digitisation) for SMEs and mid-caps in the manufacturing sector along three dimensions:

  • Provide access to competences that can help in assessing, planning and mastering the digital transformation.
  • Provide access to innovation networks of a broad spectrum of competences and best practice examples.
  • Provide financial support to SMEs and mid-caps on the demand and the supply side to master the digital transformation.

DMIW is set up to provide strong support / collaboration opportunities to SME’s and large companies alike via projects which benefit all parties from Industry and Academia by improving the awareness of digitised services and applications. The hub has developed a CPS/ Industry 4.0 Smart Teaching/Learning Factory environment which is equipped with leading edge hardware and software to demonstrate best practices.

 

The Business knowledge is in the Hub and the Academics can tap into the knowledge and look for new methodologies just as they do in any other RTO type organisation. 

There is no doubt about the need for DiHCS – Just simply how ambitious do we want to be!
