Australis Engineering has won a contract to produce steel bar handling equipment for a new venture aiming to revolutionise the construction industry.
Australis Engineering will be designing and manufacturing the system for a new plant in Brisbane with additional machines to follow as the concept is released to the market.
This process gives Australis Engineering another opportunity to show the benefits to the client of having the machine design, manufacture and installation processes all from a single supplier.
The machines will be sorting steel bars using a custom designed cradle and drive mechanism capable of releasing a single bar from a mass group without the need for grippers, vision systems or complicated PLC or robotic systems..
The bars will be sorted onto an indexing conveyor for further processing including heating and machining.
The machine is crucial to the success of the operation and is totally unique custom designed machine for this specific application.
The contract will allow Australis Engineering to further develop its heavy industry experience and follows on from the successful project for a heavy duty drum conveying system.
