Orrcon Steel is a leading Australian manufacturer and distributor of steel, tube and pipe. The business, owned by BlueScope Steel, employs some 600 people in manufacturing plants in Queensland and South Australia and distribution plants throughout Australia. At the heart of the Victorian distribution plant is an automated steel bar picking machine, a large and complex piece of equipment with four individual operating stations, which has been in place for 13 years. Orrcon took over this machine in March 2016, and quickly found that bottlenecks and inefficiencies meant next-day deliveries were often not being met.
