AI-NC aims to speed up NC programming, improve machine to utilisation, reduce turnaround, improve quality, and reduce costs.
AI-NC replaces a resource intensive iterative process in computer numerically controlled (CNC) machine tools, with smart automation. Machine learning enables the incorporation of a large number of the variables that go into creating and refining a high-quality toolpath, which will allow for the capturing and automation of the expertise of both programmers and machinists.
George is a mechatronic engineer who graduated from University of Melbourne in 2020. Prior to the founding of AI-NC he had the opportunity to work practically diagnosing and improving a production line at Asahi where he developed a passion for manufacturing. This led to the founding of ADMIX (later AI-NC) in early 2020, with his two friends and co-founders.
As part of this team, he helped design, fabricate, and commercially operate a custom vertical machining centre. This experience directly led to his current role as a developer and COO of AI-NC creating software to make milling faster and more available.
Tom has been part of the hackathon and startup community since 2014 where he won awards for designing both a robot to assist the elderly care for pets and a personal jetpack for astronauts living on Mars in the Unihack and NASA SpaceApps hackathons.
He worked at black.ai after completing his undergraduate degree as a software developer and hardware designer. Whilst undertaking his Masters in Mechatronics Engineering part time, he co-founded ADMIX (later AI-NC) in 2020. During this time he, along with his co-founders, designed and fabricated a three axis vertical machining centre, becoming self-taught machinists and operating their machine commercially.
Max’s background is in finance and analytics. Over previous years he has undertaken a range of internships in consulting and investment banking and developed a broad skillset. He co-founded AI-NC in 2020 and is currently working as a Project Manager at Kuehne + Nagel Australia in supply chain logistics.
Max has overseen various national projects which include: setting up an overseas share service centre, creating and automating his own tableau data visualisation tool for operators and managing the national strategy meetings. Max has a Bachelor of Management from RMIT.
