Automation in Australian Manufacturing is evolving and being embraced by manufacturers serving diverse industries. Automation can provide many benefits including processing precision and consistency, greater safety for workers and decreased operating costs.

We have found a group of our customers are automating repetitive tasks and production runs more than ever. It is currently possible to have an entire factory run by just a few people supported by automated machines and robots. Automation in manufacturing will allow for consistency and quality in production processes.

In Australia, universities have joined forces to work with industry participants and collaborate to increase competitiveness, support automation, develop new products / services and build a pipeline of talent and skills. With our Steel Efficiency Review® visits we have uncovered how businesses in manufacturing environments are adapting and transitioning for the future. Our customers’ attitudes towards technology, production and talent have evolved and we aim to fully support their journey.

With 1053 Steel Efficiency Review® visits now completed for businesses of all shapes and sizes across a full spectrum of steel industries; we have found that operational improvements requires manufacturers to look at their world through a different lens – to question and reframe the ‘way things are done’ – to determine what is on and off the agenda. Asking the hard questions is the only way to come up with the innovative solutions.

The Steel Efficiency Review® aims to provide recommendations to innovate and improve our customer’s business and at the same time our product and service offer. We work hard with our customers to innovate and develop new solutions.
