On Friday 20 October, the SEMMA Board had a unique opportunity to tour the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF). Acting as hosts for the SEMMA monthly Board meeting, the ANFF team presented an enlightening session about the facility’s capabilities, underlining the potential for industry innovation.
The event was facilitated by Dr. Sean Langelier, General Manager for the Melbourne Centre for Nanofabrication and the Victorian Node of the Australian National Fabrication Facility (ANFF-VIC), and Oded VanHam, ANFF Client Engagement Facilitator (Medtech). Their informative presentation was followed by an insightful facility tour, aimed at showcasing the opportunities for industry to access cutting-edge technology and services, right on their doorstep in Clayton.
